I was thinking more than MN. Mpls/St Paul, more accepted, but not saying much. The coasts, esp CA? Way more accepted.

Even the coasts were ‘traditional’ then. Really traditional. In the 50s and very early 60s it was just the way it was. I mean you had a couple really small pockets of Bohemia – Greenwich / SoHo in NYC and North Beach near City Lights in San Fran… Other than those neighborhoods – east coast west coast and pretty much every where was stereotypical 1950s. South was worse – obviously worse – but 50s culture was pretty well entrenched for both good and bad (it wasn’t all bad just sort of weird).

Thing is many great artists are as much a product of their time as they are their own talents. I think that applies with both Dylan and Prince.
