Robbie Robertson on Dylan and Scorsese

Robbie Robertson has a new album, and takes the opportunity to reflect on Dylan and Scorsese.

What he always appreciated was Dylan’s “amazing imagination, that’s one of the greatest gifts of all. He tore down some boundaries that needed tearing down.” With The Basement Tapes, Robertson was partly responsible for Dylan’s transition to something simpler and perhaps purer. “It was my idea to put a studio in the basement of this house so that The Band could sort out our music. And Bob just kept coming over, and there was a great vibe and we ended up doing those songs. It was this underground, undercooked thing.”
