Dylan mentioned the freemasons on Theme Time Radio Hour. Introducing Charlie Walker's "Who Will Buy the Wine," he says that Charlie "was a freemason, and you can tell." He then went on: "Here are some other great freemasons that come out of the Grand Ol' Opry: Roy Acuff, Eddie Arnold, Grandpa Jones, Pee-Wee King, Little Jimmy Jenkins, Roy Clark, Charlie Louvin, and Grand Ol' Opry band member Joel Edwards. They've all committed themselves to the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man by becoming Master Masons. Preach on my brothers!"

Some people think that the eye logo you see at Dylan's concerts is the ancient Egyptian Eye of Horus, not the Masonic Eye.

The Eye of Horus:

The Masonic Eye:

Since the Dylan logo wears a crown, it may symbolize the Desiderius Erasmus maxim, "In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king."

Suzie Pullen reportedly designed it. See here:

Purporting to tell the secrets of the secret societies, The Secret History of the World by Mark Booth quotes a passage from Chronicles in the introduction, it's the part about "seeing things as they really are, I don't mean metaphorically". The author relates what is said directly to these teachings. I forget the details, but it caught my attention.

The book is a bit mumbo jumbo -y so I don't know if I'll get much further...

He's not a Mason, he's a member of the Illuminati...As is Stephen King, who shot John Lennon. Bob's particular role in the murder of Michael Jackson and the staging of World War II is, at this time, unclear.

By that do you mean he's no longer socially concerned? If he was still socially conscious I couldn't imagine him not being distressed....

he's really James Mason but I remember when he said he belonged to the church of the poisoned mind! That was his Boy George tribute.

Yes, he is no longer in distress, but he used to play in traffic

Dylan also claimed that "...all the presidents except Jimmy Carter were Freemasons." Of course, in various TTRH shows he also opined that Alexander Dumas wrote Airport 79 - The Concorde, and made the very debatable claim that Ronald Reagan was a "friend of the black man." And of course, there's also his fractured retelling of the Krushchev/Nixon Kitchen Debate.

"I've always believed that the first rule of being subversive is not to let anybody know you're being subversive." ~ Bob Dylan, Theme Time Radio Hour, "Trains (Part 1)," March 14, 2007

Well, I would like to read yours, JP. :wink: Maybe someday, as our favorite DJ once said.
