STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF AND ENJOY THE SPIRIT OF MUSIC – Interview with Michel Montecrossa

Michel Montecrossa answers questions of a Bob Dylan aficionado. This interview is released for the first time in relation with the release of ‘FIRE ON THE WATER’ – the Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2018

Q: How did your obsession with Bob Dylan begin? Do you remember the first song or album you heard?

Michel Montecrossa:
No obsession ever began. I heard a musician-artist who is in touch with the archetypal Spirit of music and word and it is this Spirit that interests me. The first song performed by Bob Dylan I heard was ‘Song to Woody’ and the first album I heard was his first album.

Q: When did you decide to cover every Dylan song? Was that the plan from the beginning, or did you realize at some point you had already covered so many you might as well do the full batch?

Michel Montecrossa:
One day in 1993 a man came to one of my concerts and asked me if I would play a Bob Dylan song for him. I had never before played a Bob Dylan song but I did it for this man. It was ‘All Along The Watchtower’. Later he now and then asked for more Bob Dylan songs as did other people because they liked the way I performed Bob Dylan songs. These demands continued to come in till today so that after a while it became the full batch. I myself never took a decision to cover every Dylan song.

Q: Which specific songs were the hardest to cover? Which were the easiest?

Michel Montecrossa:
There is no specific song that’s hard or easy to cover. I do not think in terms of covering something but rather of feeling something and if I have enough feelings in me there is nothing hard or easy.

Q: Is there a general trend between what makes a Dylan song easy or hard to play (length, number of words, chord changes, etc)?

Michel Montecrossa:
No general trend. It’s as I said a question of having the wideness to feel without walls.

Q: What are the challenges with covering some of his very obscure songs? In some cases, you seem to be the first person to ever cover them!

Michel Montecrossa:
No challenges up to now. His songs come in their own ways with their own stories. Obscure or not don’t play a role.

Q: On the other side, how do you go about making the songs that get covered constantly (Blowin’ in the Wind, Watchtower, etc) your own?

Michel Montecrossa:
The entry door for every song whether it is called ‘my own’ song or a ‘Bob Dylan’ song is openness to the Spirit of music I mentioned before. Something like ‘my, his, hers’ don‘t really exist.

Q: Are there songs that you ended up liking more after you covered them? For instance, maybe a song you weren’t that excited about doing, but then when you had to learn to play it, you appreciated it in a new way.

Michel Montecrossa:
I don’t cover songs by anyone, not even my own songs. It’s all about feeling Joy and Laughing and that I appreciate always in a new way. There is no ‘liking’ or ‘disliking’.

Q: Do you have a favorite Dylan album? A least favorite?

Michel Montecrossa:
I favor them all in the place for which they stand.

Q: Is there a lesser-known Dylan song you think that more people should cover?

Michel Montecrossa:
I think it is the song Bob Dylan has not written as yet.

Q: Have you ever heard from anyone in Bob’s camp about your project?

Michel Montecrossa:
As yet I don’t know where such a camp is. I can’t answer the question. I only know that Bob Dylan himself said that I can perform any and all of his songs.

Q: Can you tell me a little more about your annual Michel & Bob Dylan Fest? For instance: How did that start, and when? Why did you decide to do this series of concerts? I gather many/most of your Dylan covers have been performed and release in that context.

Michel Montecrossa:
The annual Michel & Bob Dylan Fest started in 2001 as a result of people asking me always more to sing and play Bob Dylan songs as they like my way of performing them. The resulting live recordings then made their way into releases.

Q: What advice do you have for other musicians who want to cover Dylan?

Michel Montecrossa:
Don’t cover Dylan but stay true to yourself and enjoy the Spirit of music.

Song & lyrics: ‘New Challenge – My Love & Sweetness World’ by Michel Montecrossa

Time to listen to Michel Montecrossa‘s song ‘New Challenge – My Love & Sweetness World’

New Challenge – My Love & Sweetness World

My Love and Sweetness World
is my way toward you.
My Love and Sweetness World
is my way to dare the true.

From night to day I go
with you and your soul.
My Love and Sweetness World
is the challenge to be the all.

I’m glad with your smile
and every new day
that is given to me
together with you.

New challenge – new birth.
New challenge – new earth.
My Love and Sweetness World
always is there for you.

My Love and Sweetness World
in you is free.
I thank you for all,
for what you are and what
you give to me.
