Los Angeles Press Conference., December 1965 >>
Q: Bob, why is there such a widespread use of drugs among singers today? (Laughter) BD: I don’t know. Are you a singer? Q: Do you take drugs yourself? BD: I don’t even know what a drug is. I have never even seen a drug. I would not know what one looked like if I saw one. Q: Bob, what sort of technique do you use when you write a song, or don’t you cal it any technique? BD: Well, I just sit down and the next thing I know, it’s there... Q: Why are you putting us, and the rest of the world, on so? BD: I’m just trying to answer your questions as good as you can ask them. Q: I am sure you must have been asked a thousand times—what are you trying to say in your music? I don’t understand ONE of the songs. BD: Well, you shouldn’t feel offended or anything. I am not trying to say anything to you. If you don’t get it, you don’t have to really think about it, ‘cause it’s not addressed to you. Q: Are you trying to say something when you write? Or are you just entertaining? BD: I’m just an entertainer. That’s all.
