RIP Mr Jones
Jones had interviewed Dylan as a summer intern for Time magazine at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965, shortly before Dylan wrote his song, which begins, "You walk into the room/With your pencil in your hand/You see somebody naked/And you say, 'Who is that man?'" and which ends, "Something is happening her/But you don't know what it is/Do you, Mr. Jones?"
Later, in an article in Rolling Stone, Jones wrote: "I resented the caricature but had to admit that there was something happening there at Newport in the summer of 1965, and I didn't know what it was." - More news from Contact Music
