“Home will always be a refuge from the business, like that Bob Dylan song.’’

And Phoenix, who seldom goes anywhere without a guitar and writes songs whenever he can, started humming Dylan’s “Shelter From the Storm”.

“That’s another gift from the past, man: great music,” he said. “If we can sort out what’s great about the past and apply it to the present, and leave the future to faith, I think … I think you’re pretty well taken care of.”

- Excerpt from a LA Times’ article, 1988.

Although The Thing Called Love was a modern love story set in Nashville, Phoenix turned the movie into vehicle to show his contempt for his stardom. Changing his character into a moody temperamental singer, he insisted on playing it with a sneering scowl on his face. “The producers were worried because River chose a darker, more introspective way to play the part than was written,” explained Moyle. “At one point I said ‘River, who the hell are you playing here? I don’t get it.’”

Phoenix then admitted he had modelled James Wright on the less flattering side of rock icon Bob Dylan, as seen in in D.A. Pennebakers documentary Don’t Look Back about his unhappy 1965 English tour during which he was booed off stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall for going electric. “In that movie Bob Dylan displayed probably the most sour reaction to stardom possible,” explained Moyle. “I don’t think he smiled once in the whole movie and there are shots of Joan Baez gazing lovingly at him while he’s just scorning her and all his friends"
