As if I didn’t feel old enough, the death of Les Paul and thinking back to the ‘Summer of Love’ at Woodstock, my good buddie Craig Rutman, the Apex of Real Estate in North Carolina sent me a note.
If you don’t know Craig he’s the ActiveRainer scouring the internet, visiting every site possible, so I don’t have to!
Well Craig, sent me a link this morning that curled my graying hair!
It was about Bob Dylan, song writer and performer extraordinaire, (please tell me you remember him). He actually started his career in the folk scene in NYC in the early 60’s. His idols were, of course, Woody Guthrie and Ramblin’ Jack Ellitiott. Still foggy, how bout "Blowing in the Wind".
We’re not talking 40 years since Woodstock, we’re talking 50 years full of Bob Dylan music.
Fast forward to July 23, 2009! A great day in Ocean County! Bob Dylan will be playing at Blue Claws Stadium (home of the Blue Claws, surprising isn’t it?) otherwise know as First Energy Park in Lakewood, Ocean County.
Unfortunately, Lakewood’s not what it once was, so the performers had (?) to stay in Long Branch (Monmouth County, NJ).
I guess Robert Zimmerman, AKA Bob Dylan, needed to walk. So he did..around a area of Long Branch many will say is not so nice.
Well, a police report ensues…suspicious character wandering around…
Guess who, Bob Dylan with no ID, two 20 something cops, and a trip back to Dylan’s hotel, because the 20 something’s didn’t have a clue!! Click here to read about the whole episode, not mentioned yet in our local papers!
So tell me Mr. Dylan…How Does It Feel (Like a Rolling Stone) .
