When i was around 16, i became completely obsessed with Bob Dylan and his music. i read every biography about him; read all his bizarre drug-inspired poetry; watched Don't Look Back to the point where i could quote the film by heart; and i would only listen to Dylan's albums.
August 7, 1997: One of the most amazing experiences ever. i saw Ani Difranco open for Bob Dylan in Toronto at the Molson Amphitheatre. As soon as Dylan walked onto the stage, i was mesmerized by him. Either that or it was the massive mushroom cloud of pot that filled the outdoor stadium.
And so, when i read that Dylan bought a mansion in the highlands of Scotland, my heart fluttered a bit and i said, "OHMIGAWDZSSZ!"
