THE ORIGIN OF BOB DYLAN'S TOGETHER THROUGH LIFE
I discussed my favorite albums of 2009 on SIRIUS XM show The Morning Jolt with Larry Flick, I mentioned my favorite album of the year: Bob Dylan's Together Through Life. I mentioned that Dylan started the album when a film director asked him to write a song for his movie. That director was Olivier Dahan, and he wrote and directed the film, My Own Love Song, which stars Renee Zellweger and Forest Whitaker. Apparently, Dahan asked Dylan to write a song, and he came up with "Life Is Hard," and that somehow led to Dylan writing the entire album (and also doing the score and incidental music for the film). Supposedly, the movie will hit theaters on September 24, 2010.
