“I owe to him the writing of my first song, ‘Seeing the photo of Bob Dylan’. It is one of the first songs I composed within a vast artifact that I consider unusual, which took me a bit everywhere, presented in a program by Giorgio Gaber “. It is the personal tribute to the Adnkronos of the actor Pippo Franco to Bob Dylan who will turn 80 next Monday. “I interpreted the song myself, a singer with a slight stutter. I always came out of the box in an era when only love songs were sung – added Pippo Franco – It was the story of a family conflict, between a young man at that time, with which I identified myself, and my father, who could not understand and accept the changes in the world. All treated with irony, with the musicality of those years “. According to Pippo Franco,” Bob Dylan was the first to inaugurate , with an unconventional genius, a way of being that has gone down in history. It was crucial – he confessed – if he had not been there, music would have traveled very different paths. A bit like the Beatles, Bob Dylan it has the same value as those who made the great revolutions “. “He was the creator of an era, forerunner of what would happen next – added the great actor – I felt close to him. He did not forget the traditions, his history, projecting into the future everything that would change. I repeat – he has concluded- It marked an era, determining it and opening all doors “.
