Legendary singer/songwriter Bob Dylan has hit out at the state of the music industry – branding it “hypocritical rubbish”.
The folk rock icon is tired of the industry which made him famous, insisting it is filled with fake people and hypocrites.
And the star admits he feels uncomfortable socialising with music industry insiders – feeling more in tune with the “dignified” literature and art worlds, branding them “honest” and “upfront”.
He told The Times newspaper: “The music world’s a made-up bunch of hypocritical rubbish. I know that the book people are a whole lot saner. And the art world? From the small steps I’ve taken in it, I’d say, yeah, the people are honest, upfront and deliver what they say. Basically, they are who they say they are. They don’t pretend. And having been in the music world most of my life I can tell you it’s not that way. Let’s just say it’s less dignified.”
