Outside the Game

Greil Marcus struggles to link a president and a king

In Double Trouble, Marcus begins to reek of an old man whose generation has come of age. It's no surprise that Marcus identifies with and leans on characters such as Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, and now President Clinton. They're all -- Marcus included -- of the first rock 'n' roll generation: an intelligent and undeniably talented generation filled with passion, ideas, and the utmost potential. But they're also of a generation best embodied by a president who struggles, when put up to the light, with something as simple as defining the word "is."
