Being laid up after surgery allows you to watch a huge bunch of stuff on TV you might never watch, for instance a sort of a biography thing on Andy Warhol.

I have always been semi interested, mainly due to the Lou Reed / Velvet Underground thing but was aware that many, many celebs gravitated to Andy's studio when they were in town.

Anyhow, on this show they insinuated that when Bob Dylan showed up a couple of times, he sort of ... didn't really like Andy nor what he stood for. Andy and his gang, doing what they did, filmed Bob, sketched him, generally used him for whatever they were doing at the time and Bob felt he should be compensated for that.

Andy acted like he had no idea what Bob was talking about....so when Bob left, he had his people take a bunch of Elvis paintings or silk screens or whatever they were...literally take them, strap them on top of the cab and left.

They also mentioned that whatever hot model was hanging around Andy at the time was stolen by Bob at the same time.....sheesh.

I did not know any of that. But then I am assuming it is true, I mean it was on TV.

You need to see "Factory Girl". This is the film about the late actress/model, Edie Sedgwick. Dylan was romantically involved with Edie, who sought fame via Warhol's ..."films" (for lack of a better word).

Dylan is portrayed in the movie - but not named per se. I believe that he filed a suit against the writers and producers.

Dylan's (or the character's that suggest Dylan) feelings toward Warhol are certainly cited in the film.

Edie eventually died (OD'd) heartbroken when she heard that Dylan had moved on and married. Edie was the inspiration for many of Dylans song's of that era.

Edie lived for quite a few years after her relationship with Dylan was over in '65. She was involved with Bob Neuwirth, Dylan's friend, for some time after Dylan and even married after moving from NY to CA (she married a guy she met while in a phychiatric hospital) and was married at the time of her death in the early 70's. This is someone who led a life both remarkable and tragic. In learning about the childhood she led and her family - look up family dysfunction and surely their photo appears - it's not so hard to see how it came to such a sad and early close. Jean Stein has a book, 'Edie', about Edie Sedgwick that is interesting reading (I first read this a couple of decades ago and in trying to find a link to post here found something more recently published that appears to same but is called 'Edie: American Girl'). This/these contain a series of interviews with a lot of folks who were major players in the scene back then and knew Edie (who, as Dylan said - she breaks just like a little girl)
