“fucking loud!”

May 17, 1966 ~ Orpheus has just “gone electric” and all the tight-ass folkies are losing their collective minds. At the Free Trade Hall in Manchester, England, Dylan’s ready to launch into his latest hit, “Like a Rolling Stone,” when one of those tight-asses  shouts out, “Judas!” Dylan responds with, “I don’t believe you,” adding, “You’re a liar!” He then proceeds to tell the band to play the song “fucking loud.”

Orpheus and the band … play it loud.
