Elizabeth Nelson is a singer-songwriter and journalist who fronts the garage-punk band The Paranoid Style. In July they released a split 7" with Wussy on Bar-None Records, followed by a reissue of the band’s 2015 EP “Rock & Roll Just Can't Recall” in August. None of her songs are about Bob Dylan.
In a 2017 interview with Bill Flanagan, Bob Dylan held forth on his views regarding Don McLean’s “American Pie,” a song that I have loathed with an almost inchoate malice since first encountering it as a young child. Dylan didn’t seem like a fan either, and in particular addressed the long-standing conjecture that he himself was the so-called “jester” referred to in McLean’s bloviating marathon.
