Unlike No Direction Home, the Martin Scorsese doc that received unprecedented access to Bob Dylan, John Gilbert never managed to get Dylan’s blessing for his work. But that hasn’t stopped Gilbert from making six movies about him.
The latest, Bob Dylan Never Ending Tour Diaries: Drummer Winston
Watson's Incredible Journey, hit DVD earlier this month. According to
Variety, the series of films began when Gilbert encountered a former
Dylan associate at a cancer benefit, and his film work branched
out from there. Gilbert’s films have featured iconic names like the
late Jerry Wexler in an unfiltered approach to Dylan’s legacy.
Winston Watson's Incredible Journey is available at Amazon and on the
movie’s official site. Gilbert told Variety that he’s never met Dylan
and doesn’t expect to, but his unauthorized film business continues to develop.
