Dylan interviewed by Time Magazine reporter, Horace Judson. Horace Judson, according to his wikipedia page
, was a historian of molecular biology.
Judson believes the confrontation was contrived to make the sequence more entertaining. "That evening," says Judson, "I went to the concert. My opinion then and now was that the music was unpleasant, the lyrics inflated, and Dylan, a self-indulgent whining show off".
