Do All 20-Somethings Not Know Who Bob Dylan Is?
Just when you think you’ve heard it all about Bob Dylan, this new story pops up. Dylan and his tour with Willie Nelson and Johnny Cougar Mellencamp was visiting Lakewood, NJ on July 23rd. Seems that in an effort to pass time, my Leader decided to go for a walk. He made his way to another town called Long Branch, where a local must have called the police because eventually, two police officers stopped Dylan to question what he was doing there. Bob Dylan, a musical legend and American Icon, told them that he was “looking at houses”.
The thing is that neither of these police officers knew who he was. They were both in the mid-20s…but come on. I wouldn’t expect them to know the lyrics to every tune on “Blond On Blond” but to not have heard of Bob Dylan is pretty lame right?
