    Dylan was joking. “I think it would be good if you are looking for directions and you heard my voice saying something like, ‘Left at the next street.... No, right... You know what? Just go straight,” he said. "I probably shouldn’t do it because whichever way I go, I always end up at one place -- Lonely Avenue.” BTW, here's a link to Bob's voiceover for Cadillac: Some fans complain that doing ads for Cadillac and Victoria's Secret constitute "selling out", but I don't see any difference between Bob selling me a cd of his song and him selling his songs to be used in advertising. The book about the business side of rock 'n roll, Mansion On The Hill, portrays Dylan as a pretty sharp businessman.

    My co- worker's Tom Tom talks to him in Jamaican and argues with him when he blows a turn. I could download John Cleese to mine if I chose.I dont so choose. I stay with the stock voice that seems to get annoyed when I take my own path. Hal, from 2001 would be fun to listen to. Flat, emotionless,totally insane.
