Bob Dylan Featured On Cover Of Rolling Stone

Bob Dylan is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone, as the mag revisits his 1970's era release Self Portrait.

The cover story focuses mainly on the story of Self Portrait's creation, and includes new interviews with Dylan collaborators Al Kooper, David Crosby, Roger McGuinn, David Bromberg and Happy Traum.

"I thought it was strange, strange, strange," says Kooper of Self Portrait, which consists mainly of cover songs. "Why is the Shakespeare of songwriting doing other people's songs? And why is he doing all these old folk songs? What's going on?"

The story also tracks Dylan's career from his motorcycle accident in 1966 through his return to the charts in 1973 with "Knockin' On Heaven's Door."

The new issue hits news stands on August 30.
