Andy Hertzfeld on idol-worship #dylan

🕤︎ - 2005-09-07

"Bob: Who would you like most to have dinner with tonight?

Andy: My wife I guess, that's who I will have dinner with. [Steve Jobs] for years had promised me he'd arrange a meeting with [Bob Dylan]. He eventually did have a meeting with Bob Dylan and didn't include me in it. When I thought about it, its like "what am I really going to say to him?" Dylan has a tremendous first part of his biography out and when you read it you see, gee, you don't want to impinge on his time. I don't think I have anything unique to give to him so I'd rather just leave him alone. So I guess I'd want to have dinner with someone who would want to have dinner with me."
