HOW DOES IT FEEL?

NJ Police Question Bob Dylan

"Like a complete unknown," indeed. On the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, Bob Dylan just wanted to go for a stroll in Long Branch, New Jersey to kill time between concerts when someone called the cops about a "scruffy old man acting suspiciously." Unfortunately, the wrong cop arrived at the scene; Kristie Buble, a 24-year-old who was sure Dylan was not the legendary singer-songwriter she had seen in photos. "I asked him what his name was and he said, 'Bob Dylan,' Buble said. "Now, I've seen pictures of Bob Dylan from a long time ago and he didn't look like Bob Dylan to me at all. He was wearing black sweatpants tucked into black rain boots, and two raincoats with the hood pulled down over his head." Buble followed her training and humored Dylan, who she thought was maybe an escapee from a hospital. "So I said, 'OK Bob, what are you doing in Long Branch?' He said he was touring the country with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp. So now I'm really a little fishy about his story." She drove him back to his hotel to confirm his identity, and was shocked when a staffer showed her Dylan's passport.
