By the mid-70s, Dylan was performing wearing whiteface, partly to emphasize his own minstrelsy, partly to be be invisible [which is confusing as John Lennon and Steve Martin wore white [suits] on stage to be easier seen] in the wakes of both his success as a star of electricity, and his failure as a husband.
