Ha!

I like how legally it's hers until she attempts to give it to someone else or sell it.

Nice headline.
 
2012-07-16 10:24:29 AM  
It'd be kind of cool if Dylan got it back and played it at one of his shows this summer.

I don't know about it's authenticity, but I got a guy who is an expert on these things so do you mind if I bring him in here to check it out?

Expert: Yeah, turns out it belongs to a guy named Robert Zimmerman. Probably worth about $20.
 
2012-07-16 10:51:13 AM  
I thought Dylan already addressed this. He said he still has that guitar.

Tell you what....I got a guy I know that's an expert on guitars owned by Jewish mumblers. Let me give him a call and we'll see what its worth.

That's what Dylan's lawyer told the LA Times.

I guess it was too much work to get a picture of the guitar in the article,huh?

At least put a pic of Bob playing the guitar from the festival.

This headline? I like this.
 
2012-07-16 11:53:30 AM  
All I got is a red guitar
Three chords
And the truth

All I got is a red guitar
The rest is up to you

Bob Dylan was a popular musician back in the 1960s. His most famous work was a 2009 album of Christmas carols, and collectors go nuts over it. If this guitar is authentic, it could be worth a fortune, but I've got to get it for the right price.
 
2012-07-16 12:05:05 PM  
I wonder if that guitar has an unpleasant nasal quality to it's tone.

Cool, did Pete Seeger have it hidden subterraneally in the 4th basement level of his apartment building?

Came in for the knee-jerk comments about his singing voice and leave semi-satisfied.

If Dylan is going to be a greedy fark about it, I'd burn it.

That was my thought as well. Go all Pete Townsend on it first.

Unauthorized Bratwurst: abhorrent1: I thought Dylan already addressed this. He said he still has that guitar.

Yeah, and thats mentioned in the article. The researchers don't believe Dylan is correct.

For something that happened 47 years ago to a guy who did a lot of drugs... his memory could be wrong. Not that he's lying, but stuff like this comes up all the time with rock stars.

I doubt he framed it on the wall and kept it there forever... or something else to absolutely signify that was the guitar. He probably didn't care for years, and then when asked he pulled out a guitar he thought was it and convinced himself subconsciously that "yeah, this has to be the one".

Plug it into a distortion pedal, and you've got his voice today.

As (at least I thought) a big Dylan fan, I am disturbed that I find the latter part of this headline obscure.

/oh, 80's Dylan... with the exception of Oh Mercy I don't like anything he did from '78 to '92

It would appear no one is gonna help us out.

Fine. As 'real' Dylan fans we shall come up with an explanation of our own.

As has already been pointed out, it's a reference to someone in the crowd calling him "Judas!" near the end of the Manchester Free Trade Hall show (bootlegged for years as The Royal Albert Hall show).

Dylan responded, "I don't believe you. You're a liar!" Then he turned to his band (The Band) and said "Play farkin' loud" right before they went into "Like a Rolling Stone".

Thirty pieces of silver was the price for which Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus, according to the Gospel of Matthew 26:15 in the Christian New Testament.


Huh, you didn't KNOW that?
