A handwritten manuscript of Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone" was sold today in New York at rich people's eBay, Sotheby's auction house, for $2.045 million to an unidentified bidder. The early draft of the lyrics, written on stationery from the Roger Smith Hotel in Washington, was vaunted by Sotheby's as "the only known surviving draft of the final lyrics for this transformative rock anthem."
Sort of like the geriatric's version Chris Brown-Drake fight, but with less violence and no Tony Parker, Bob Dylan is beefing with historians at PBS over the whereabouts of the electric guitar he used at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, where Dylan famously went "electric." Dylan claims he's still in possession of the Fender Stratocaster he used, but Dawn Peterson, the daughter of Victor Quinto, Dylan's pilot from the 1960s, says otherwise.
This video imagines a world in which "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "All Along the Watchtower" weren't the only famous Dylan standards. Could it be that "My Humps" was originally inspired by a "lovely lady-lump" Joan Baez had on her back?
