If you don't know who Paul Williams is, let me tell you, he's not the boxer or the former member of The Temptations, Paul Williams is the founder of Crawdaddy magazine (along with Creem and Oz, some of the best writing about music, ever...fuck Rolling Stone and their monopoly, history is written by the winners [or Wenners in this case], and the winners seem to the jagoffs with no vision)...but what I know Paul Williams from best is his extraordinary writing on Bob Dylan in his "Performing Artist" series of books, which, along with Jimmy McDonough and Lester Bangs is basically on the very short list of books about rock and roll. Williams' Dylan books are so magnificent, if you really pay attention, they are almost singularly responsible for changing the perception of the man and his work. Williams is one of the great listeners and interpreters of art in this or any era. He actually makes the idea of music crtique seem essential. Anyway, he is suffering from very severe stages of dementia. He is under full time medical supervision. His family is struggling to pay the bills. This is fucking tragic. He is a truly great man. Please help if you can.
