Bob Dylan expected to miss daughter's wedding

Sep 30 2013, 6:06am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Bob Dylan is expected to snub his daughter's wedding, despite being invited to the nuptials.

The 72-year-old musician's 27-year-old daughter Desiree Dennis-Dylan - his sixth child, and only offspring with second wife Carolyn Dennis, his long-time back-up singer - is tying the knot with her girlfriend Kayla Sampson next August in Mira Loma, California.

Desiree - who met Kayla while performing in the Young Americans, a travelling non-profit performing arts club for youths - has invited her famous father to the nuptials but is expecting to be disappointed.

Jolene Sampson - Kayla's mother - told the New York Daily News newspaper: "Of course he's invited, but he's just not going to go. He didn't say that, but that's what we are assuming. It would be sad, but he is really supportive and happy for her."

Bob and Carolyn married in June 1986 - six months after Desiree was born - but divorced in October 1992. The marriage and their daughter's existence were a secret and were only revealed when Howard Sounes' Dylan biography, 'Down the Highway: The Life Of Bob Dylan', was released in 2001.

At the time, Carolyn insisted they kept their daughter a secret so she could have a "normal childhood". She had her mother's surname as a child but eventually took her famous father's surname when she was old enough to decide for herself.

Desiree has refused to be drawn on her dad Bob's potential wedding no-show.

Speaking through a publicist about the ceremony, Desiree said: "No decisions have been made about a wedding. We want to keep matters affecting our families private."

When quizzed on whether or not her dad will have a role in her big day, she said: "We don't know yet. We will have to see."

Climate Change Worsens Coastal Flooding From High Tides

Oct 8 2014 4:47pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

A wave of high tides is expected to hit much of the East Coast this week. These special tides – king tides — occur a few times a year when the Moon's orbit brings it close to the Earth. But scientists say that lately, even normal tides throughout the year are pushing water higher up onto land. And that's causing headaches for people who live along coastlines. As Bob Dylan might have put it, the tides, they are ...

Billy Joe Shaver On Mountain Stage

Sep 22 2014 6:11pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

There's little to say about Billy Joe Shaver that hasn't already been said. But it might be worth noting this, from Mountain Stage host Larry Groce: "Billy Joe Shaver has actually lived the life that many in modern country music only sing about." The original "Honky Tonk Hero," Shaver first came to the attention of music lovers in 1973, when Waylon Jennings filled nearly an entire album with Shaver's songs, in the ...

Jack White: ‘I don’t see beauty in texting & not talking face to face’

Sep 18 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

The world wouldn’t be the same without the occasional bitchy interview from Jack White. Did you see his recent sad baseball face at a Chicago Cubs game? That made my day. “Grumpy Jack” doesn’t dislike baseball. He simply had a bad day. I follow a blogger on Twitter who snapped a photo of Jack smiling at a Bay area game a few weeks later. There was talk of him getting hit with a ball in Chicago. I don’t know. Back to Jack White ...

Next Wave #599: Sway Clarke II

Sep 15 2014 2:59am CDT | Source: Clash Music

Hip-hop meets Britpop…Sometimes in life, you have to hold up your hands and accept defeat. As Sway Clarke II (‘the second’) did, after a brief flirtation with rap. “I thought I was a rapper. I was a rapper. I just wasn’t good.” His laugh spills into a gap-toothed grin, as he sits within the lime green-licked offices of Island Records – his new home. “I just realised there was a big difference between me and Kanye. So I started singing.” ...
