As part of the BBC’s tribute to Bob Dylan on his 70th birthday, they commissioned three artists to pen a short story inspired by the words and mythology of Dylan. One of those artists was founding member of The Felice Brothers and The Duke and The King, Simone Felice.
Felice’s story, The Night Ride takes it’s cue from this line in Dylan’s track Joey:
Born in Red Hook, Brooklyn, in the year of who-knows-when.
From this point, Felice takes us on a trip through the wintry streets of Brooklyn, through the hazy eyes of Adrian Young, ‘a wrong young man, the night’s blown in.’ It’s a sparkling gem of a story and while the BBC no longer have it available on their site, you can listen to the full story on Felice’s website. Have a listen while you still can!
