Bob Dylan On the Roof

It was at summer camp in northern Wisconsin in 1953 that I first met Bobby Zimmerman from Hibbing. He was 12 years old and he had a guitar. He would go around telling everybody that he was going to be a rock-and-roll star. I was 11 and I believed him.

Louis Kemp Memoir Pulls Back the Curtain on Bob Dylan

In the recently released concert documentary by Martin Scorsese chronicling Bob Dylan’s 1975 “Rolling Thunder Revue” tour, Dylan says, “If someone’s wearing a mask, they’re going to tell you the truth.” But some have argued Dylan has been wearing a mask ever since he legally changed his name to Bob Dylan from Robert Allen Zimmerman in 1962.

There have been a library’s worth of books trying to explain what’s behind that Bob Dylan mask — even his trash was deemed worthy of study — but large swaths of Dylan’s life remain unkown. How serious was his 1966 motorcycle accident? What led him to embrace evangelical Christianity in the late 1970s? What brought him back to Judaism a few years later, and what was behind his appearances on the 1989 Chabad telethon? 

If few people know Bob Dylan, even fewer can lay claim to knowing Robert Zimmerman. But Louie Kemp may come close. Dylan’s best friend since the duo met at summer camp in 1953, and also the producer of his “Rolling Thunder Revue” tour, Kemp has just released his memoir, “Dylan & Me: 50 Years of Adventures” (Westrose Press)...
