Michel Montecrossa says about the Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2011:
“In my songs I connect the present with the future, as Bob Dylan in his songs connects the past with the present. A complete Action Philosophy is the union of both aspects. That’s why I sing my songs along with Bob Dylan songs, for he too is helping in the transformation of the world. And that is the something that counts.”
