Speaking of Empire Burlesque, (which does have one good song), the
Dylan-and-MT parallel keeps cropping up, especially now that both have
published "Volume 1" of their non-sequential autobiographies. Leaving
aside the question of who will publish their Vol. 2 first, I wonder if a
conference topic is emerging here?
