54 Years Ago Nobel Peace Prize Recipiant Bob Dylan Walked Off On Ed Sullivan

***
Dylan was slated to appear on the massively popular variety show on this day, May 12, in 1963 — a year before the Beatles.>>>

On Ed Sullivan, Dylan planned to [perform] “Talkin’ John Birch Paranoid Blues,” a satirical song written from the perspective of a John Birch Society member who is so terrified of communist infiltration that he looks for Reds everywhere, including in his chimney, toilet and glove box.

Sullivan himself apparently had no problem with the song when Dylan auditioned it, but a CBS executive who heard it during dress rehearsal found it too controversial.>>>
