Alk, Howard

Co-owner of Chicago club, the Bear; cameraman on both the 1965 and 1966 English tours; and co-editor (with Dylan) of Eat The Document and Renaldo And Clara. Alk also filmed several concerts on the 1981 tour. He died in January 1982.

Clinton Heylin:"Bob Dylan: Behind The Shades, a Biography" (Ed Ricardo):

How significant do readers think the other 1950s Chicago folk club entrepeneur -- other than Albert Grossman I mean -- Howard Alk, how significant is he to the work of Bob Dylan?

How widely watched are his films these days, in the USA as a whole or in Chicago in particular? (American Revolution II, The Murder Of Fred Hampton, as well as his Dylan film associations)

Did his heroin addiction or his 1982 suicide at Rundown Studios, Santa Monica, California affect how he was viewed by the public?
