And why not? Each is, in his profession, one of a kind — though Grahm, as good a winemaker as he is, probably hasn’t made the wine equivalent of Blonde on Blonde yet.
I mention this for two reasons. First (shameless self-promotion alert), the Wine Curmudgeon and Grahm are scheduled to appear on Olivia Wilder’s Blog Talk Radio show at 8 p.m. central on Sunday (Grahm first, and I’ll then join him). Second, Grahm made a music video, called “Sub-terroir Rhonesick Blues,” to promote his new book, Been Doon So Long. It’s a very clever takeoff of Dylan’s classic version of his “Subterranean Homesick Blues,” which appeared in the documentary, Don’t Look Back, directed by D.A. Pennebaker.
The Dylan version is here; you can watch Grahm’s effort below. Lots of in jokes, and it helps if you know the Dylan song, but still funny. My favorite line? “You don’t need a Spectator to know which way your wine blows.”
