The singer was very patient & polite….but instead of being asked questions, she was forced to just sit on the phone and listen to Danny go on…and on.. and on with his rambling Dylan tales. BFD, Danny. The poor singer could have gotten that earful standing in front of the Fillmore, from a hippie burnout. You totally took the interview over. Yeah, Dylan was the musical prophet of your generation, we get it. You interacted with him. Wow. Please resist using your political news show as an indulgent vehicle for your subjective wallowing in your interaction with “celebrities” while you remind us regularly that you were a worker drone for….abc news. It’s tiresome, man, and if you think it gives you an edge in ‘cred’ by continually reminding people of it, you’re mistaken. Just journalize, and get off your bandwagon.
