Bob Dylan.....never heard of him.

Well Bob, police officers seem to be gettig younger and younger don't they?
Quote
You're Bob Dylan? N.J. Police Want To See Some ID

Quote
Rock legend Bob Dylan was treated like a complete unknown by police in a New Jersey shore community when a resident called to report someone wandering around the neighborhood.
Dylan was in Long Branch, about a two-hour drive south of New York City, on July 23 as part of a tour with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp that was to play at a baseball stadium in nearby Lakewood.
A 24-year-old police officer apparently was unaware of who Dylan is and asked him for identification, Long Branch business administrator Howard Woolley said Friday.
"I don't think she was familiar with his entire body of work," Woolley said.
A second officer, also in his 20s, responded to assist the first officer. He, too, apparently was unfamiliar with Dylan, Woolley said.
The officers asked Dylan for identification. The singer of such classics as "Like a Rolling Stone" and "Blowin' in the Wind" said that he didn't have any ID with him, that he was just walking around looking at houses to pass some time before that night's show.
The officers asked Dylan, 68, to accompany them back to the Ocean Place Resort and Spa, where the performers were staying. Once there, tour staff vouched for Dylan

Re: Bob Dylan.....never heard of him.

Bet that brought him down to earth with a bump!
If I fell over him in the street I don't think I would have recognised him either, although he was certainly in his prime in my day.
People change so much as they age and I haven't seen any recent photographs of him.
In any case, celebrities look so different 'in the flesh' as it were. Remember seeing Princess Anne years ago and was struck by how different she looked from the pics in the papers.

Thing was, it wasn't that they didn't recognise him but that they didn't know who was!

Re: Bob Dylan.....never heard of him.

We were sitting in work one day recently, when the woman who sits next to me - talking about the rowdy students she has living next to her - remarked that it seemed as if they were trying to recreate Woodstock in the garden.
Our manager (female, late-30s) said, "What's Woodstock?"

Why despair? It's the history of another generation which has no relevance today.
