Dylan responds

Remember all the flap a little while ago about Bob Dylan going to China and being censored and buckling under? It seemed as if there were people who thought that Dylan ought to launch a one-man protest-singer attack on the entire Chinese nation. Now the man himself talks about what happened.

Says Dylan on his web page,, "As far as censorship goes, the Chinese government had asked for the names of the songs that I would be playing. There's no logical answer to that, so we sent them the set lists from the previous 3 months. If there were any songs, verses or lines censored, nobody ever told me about it and we played all the songs that we intended to play."

Read the whole note, To my fans and followers. While you're on the site, take a look around. Needless to say, Dylan's official site is full of goodies.
