My friend got 8 out of 10, considering shes erm.. short on bob knowledge but big on bob love, I imagine it must be easy peasy indeed, surprising for mastermind. I cant access iplayer for some reason so if anyone gets another link for the bob part please help me out :cry:

25: 12 on Bob Dylan and 13 on same guy’s general knowledge questions. For anyone else interested it’s Piers Taylor (never heard of him) on Celebrity Mastermind episode 2. A couple of Bob questions I thought were a little tricky but I reckon most of you will get all 14 right.

They do seem to go easier on “celebrities” than the general public to avoid ego shattering displays.

I did pretty damn well, i impressed myself. Got George Jackson well before the question ended, the only disappointment was not getting the My Back Pages lyrics.

Agreed, too easy for most of us here I'd presume.

I'm quite surprised that any ERers would get less than 100%.

I’ve only been posting here for a month and I only got seriously into Bob Dylan last year so I am quite happy with my score. Not ashamed to admit I had never heard of George Jackson (never performed live and released as a single only) and although I knew the answer I stupidly answered Martin Scorsese instead of DA Pennebaker as I got the titles of No Direction Home and Don’t Look Back mixed up.

I've been buying Dylan's records since the 1960s, and I sometimes forget that not everybody on ER is in the same boat!
