Take ‘Masters of War.’ Every time I sing it, someone writes that it’s an anti-war song. But there’s no anti-war sentiment in that song. I’m not a pacifist. I don’t think I’ve ever been one. If you look closely at the song, it’s about what Eisenhower was saying about the dangers of the military-industrial complex in this country. I believe strongly in everyone’s right to defend themselves by every means necessary.

Dylan and Neuwirth were still in the thick of this nihilistic phase when someone suggested Neuwirth look up a “terrific girl” named Edie Sedgwick. A Warhol superstar seemed perfect fodder for the two provocateurs’ tests of character, so one night from their Village hangout the Kettle of Fish, Dylan and Neuwirth gave her a call. When Edie took her limousine downtown to join them, they found her perfectly capable of holding her own. “We spent an hour or two, all laughing and giggling, having a terrific time,” Neuwirth recalled. Dylan later acknowledged, somewhat diffidently, that Edie was an “exciting girl, very enthusiastic.” But Neuwirth in particular saw something unique. Edie, he said, had “a tremendous compassion” for those “who had seen the big sadness.” He continued to pull the actress into their orbit, encouraging her to believe that she might have a future in the Hollywood films that everyone assumed Dylan would make. For Sedgwick, a film role with Dylan seemed the perfect way out of Warhol’s Factory. Years later, Edie’s brother Jonathan would recall that Edie “called me up and said she’d met this folk singer in the Chelsea, and she thinks she’s falling in love. I could tell the difference in her, just from her voice. She sounded so joyful instead of sad.
