Dylan Footage From 1966
Some never before seen footage of Bob Dylan,
dating back almost 30 years, is about to resurface. Mickey Jones, a drummer who played
with Dylan during his 1966 world tour recently unearthed the film, which he says was
sitting in his garage collecting dust. He says he never gave it much thought - though now
he is releasing them for the first time, "I just took my home movie camera to kind of
document my trip going around the world," Jones said. "it adds a little bit more
texture to the world of Bob Dylan photographs," Jones, who is now 61, played with
Dylan when Dylan's regular drummer, Levon Heim, dropped out.
The film shows Dylan and his band -- who would later become The Bend -- on stage, in hotel
rooms, taxis and buses, and walking the streets of Europe.
The 91-minute movie, titled "1966 World Tour, The Home Movies," is available
only at Jones' website: http://www.1966tourhomemovies.com.
