No...this isn't another example of the magnificent lyrical poetry Dylan has been writing since 1962. This is a quote from his recent Rolling Stone cover story. I freaking love this!!
This is what Bob Dylan told Rolling Stone about people who criticize him for copping lyrics from Japanese authors and Civil War poets, and how it pertains to his decision to go electric in the '60s:
"These are the same people that tried to pin the name Judas on me. Judas, the most hated name in human history! If you think you've been called a bad name, try to work your way out from under that. Yeah, and for what? For playing an electric guitar? As if that is in some kind of way equitable to betraying our Lord and delivering him up to be crucified. All those evil motherfuckers can rot in hell."
