It reminded me of another story about Bob, which I think was true - it was somewhere in the USA in a town where he was giving a concert. He decided to have a walk around the town, looking at houses for sale. Someone reported him as suspicious, because of his hoodie, and a policewoman found him. Asked who he was. She didn't believe him at first.
There's a link somewhere on here (or am I imagining it?)

Fantastic story, thank for sharing.

I really enjoyed that. Preposterous in so many ways - since when was Dylan from the South?; and, if I remember the original story in Q Magazine, Dave's wife recognised him immediately, resulting in a punchline something along the lines of Dave coming home, asking if there were any messages, and his wife telling him that no, there were no messages, but Bob Dylan was waiting for him in the kitchen - but none of this mattered. Written and delivered with real charm and affection. And the final shot made me laugh out loud.

Has anyone seen the next episode? Who its about? And if its worth the downloading.

Still think, given rumours a Michael Jackson episode was cancelled? That they could fit a "bob arrested for loitering" episode in. :lol:

Was a stellar British cast in bobs episode.

Are there any news articles ect about this? To hear some testimony :lol:
Surely the couple would have told the story far and wide. Or have they mysteriously disappeared after the meeting with Dylan inc :(

I believe the Jackson one was not shown, due to a family member complaining that it was a white actor playing the part. At least that is what was reported in the tabloid press in the U.K (So you can take that with a very large, pinch of salt)

Yes, the next episode is about Samuel Beckett's friendship with Andre the Giant. It is equally well done - funny, well written and an excellent cast, well worth downloading I'd say.

I was reminded of the time when Michael Parkinson, chat show host in the UK, summoned up courage to approach Dylan at breakfast in a west end hotel. Dylan was reading the paper, without looking up he said,"Eggs over -easy" and carried on reading. Parkinson retreated.

if you enjoy humorous plays about anything Bob related, you should check this out. I loved it when it was on, and I was over the moon when this was posted in ER

OK, found it!

"'Eggs, over easy - and coffee,' he says was what Bob Dylan said to him when Parkinson approached him in an hotel at the breakfast table and told him that he loved his music. 'He thought I was a waiter.'"

Source: http://www.independent.ie/entertainment ... 55052.html

Parky, apparently, also told this slightly moved and slightly changed story of a Dylan brush-off:

"Michael Parkinson tells an anecdote about being at a top Sydney restaurant one night: who should he see at the next table, dining alone? None other than the hunch-shouldered, frizzy-haired, shades-wearing legend himself, Bob Dylan. Parkinson had long pined to get Dylan on his show. Perhaps only the cast of Dead Ringers could do justice to the encounter that followed.

With nothing to lose, Parkinson decided boldly on a direct approach. The restaurant fell quiet as he walked over to Dylan's table, where the icon was concentrating ferociously on his meal. Parkinson delicately leaned over to speak. "Ahem, Mr Dylan, I -" "He ain't here," snapped the non-interviewee, without looking up. The meeting was at an end, and Mr Parkinson tactfully withdrew.
"

It may be that this self-deprecatory tale was only in Parky's head?

Just a wee bump to say this is on Now TV for any subscribers.

I've watched it twice, was in stitches. It's brilliant.

I remember seeing this when it was transmitted. Long before video recorders, I always hoped it would be repeated, but it never was. A couple of years ago, I came across the link here in E.R. It made my day. I love this. It is not only funny, but also makes fun of some of us who take it to seriously.
