Jon Stewart is a musician and author, and holds a PHD in Music and is a huge Bob Dylan fan. His recent book is called Dylan, Lennon, Marx, and God and he talked to us about what the research he did for that book tells us about Dylan in relation to the songs on Time Out Of Mind.

As a musician, Jon plays guitar in The Wedding Present, and has appeared on albums by KD Lang and others. He is also an active educator, as a Course Leader at British and Irish Modern Music Institute in Brighton (BIMM).
