Bob Dylan: “You’re a Liar”

"From Wikipedia: Dylan undertook a world tour of Australia and Europe in the spring of 1966. Each show was split into two parts. Dylan performed solo during the first half, accompanying himself on acoustic guitar and harmonica. In the second half, backed by the Hawks, he played high voltage electric music. This contrast provoked many fans, who jeered and slow handclapped. The tour culminated in a famously raucous confrontation between Dylan and his audience in England. At the climax of the concert, one fan, angry with Dylan’s electric sound, shouted: “Judas!” to which Dylan responded, “I don’t believe you … You’re a liar!” He then turned to the band and, just within earshot of the microphone, said “Play it f****** loud.” They then launched into the last song of the night: “Like a Rolling Stone”.
On May 24 the world celebrates the birthday of Rock’s greatest poet. Also in this month, Bob Dylan is releasing his 33rd studio album. This wallpaper is a tribute to him. " Designed by Rodrigo Esch from Brazil.
