Gray visits the Rock Hall tonight to host an audio-video presentation in conjunction with the exhibit Bob Dylans American Journey: 1956-1966. He changed everything, says Gray. Hes this singer-songwriter with a weird voice, who keeps coming out with extraordinary records. The Encyclopedia includes entries on Dylans songs, collaborators, and videos (including 1990s Unbelievable, which stars former Brat Packer Ringwald). I wrote each essay as an entertaining essay in itself, says Gray. But I really dont expect people to pick up the book and read it from cover to cover.
