Rockers are in it for the cash & fame, including Dylan. Ask their producers.

Back in the day Bob would doubtless have recorded a suitable song.......but that was then and this is now. It`s time someone else put their personal freedom on the line as he showed how......I`ve always thought of Dylan as having been well raised, he`s paid his dues to all manner of causes and it`s about time folk let him off the hook. Bob Dylan has done more than any other in his field to bring issues to our attention but this doesn t put him at our command. Let the guy get on with his job and stop telling him how to do it!

Bob Dylan is a man only a few weeks away from his 70th birthday. He is a guest in China. While I don't agree with what the Chinese have done, I also disagree with the attitude of these human rights activists. I know that if a band from China was performing in the United States, and members of that band were to criticize us for something that they didn't like, I wouldn't like it. And most Americans wouldn't either. It's what you call GOOD MANNERS.

I do agree with the MCJ comments ... I'm certain that Mr. Bob is making all kinds of interventions in his own way to pacify the world. If only music, which he is, too say the least, utmostly talented; it could also means being in China and delivering a subtil message to the youth of China. He is, as MCJ stated, almost 70, he's been around (the least we can say), and his life is linked to music, not to protest songs which were identifying to a specific era .... His talent is far beyond that and speaking of prisoners, he has been the prisoner of his own icone, isn't that enough, if I may add, on a personal level?
