Trending Now

Bob Dylan could have been on his way to visit Bruce Springsteen’s old home when he was picked up by police last month.

Residents in Long Branch, New Jersey called the cops when they saw a scruffy looking man wandering the streets in the rain.

Dylan claims he was just going for a walk but he was close to the house where Springsteen wrote ‘Born to Run’ and ‘Thunder Road’.


The singer has also visited the childhood homes of Neil Young and John Lennon in the past year.

Police officer Kirstie Buble didn’t believe that he really was Bob Dylan until his manager showed her his passport when she drove him back to his hotel.

She told ABC News: “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.”

The singer says he was visiting Long Branch to play a concert with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp.
