tangled up in bob

Peter Lang is an acoustic guitarist, well worth listening to if you like the “american primitive” style of John Fahey and Leo Kottke. [If you don’t already have at least some John Fahey then you urgently need to.]

Anyway, I’m not sure where I got this from originally, but the story goes that Lang was living in Minneapolis and was working on a video project with David Zimmerman, the less well known brother of the bobsta. So one Saturday Lang calls up David Zimmerman and hears this very familiar voice answering the phone.

"Uh... is that Bob?" says Lang.

"Yeah, it's Bob" says Bob Dylan.

Well, what would you say if you got Bob Dylan on the phone? Yup. Me too.

So here's what Lang said :

" David there?"
