Dylan on 60 Minutes:
It's Alright Ma, I'm only fulfilling my contractual obligations.

A CBS promo for last night's 60 Minutes interview with Bob Dylan asked
portentously: "Why is Bob Dylan giving his first television interview
in nineteen years?" After the 15-minute segment was up, viewers might
still be asking the same question, since neither of the participants
seemed to much care about the proceedings. ...
So why was Dylan doing his first interview in nearly twenty years? The
answer may lie in something Steve Kroft told viewers at the top of the
hour, before the Dylan segment aired: Dylan's new autobiography,
Chronicles: Volume One, is published by Simon and Schuster, which,
like CBS, is owned by Viacom. ... Was this uninspired interview just
another compulsory stop on the press junket?
