  • only just seen this thread. Big Dylan fan here. I've loved him since I discovered him in the early 80's although I prefer his earlier stuff from 61 to early 70's.

    Had the pleasure of being in the audience for this one at Wembley Stadium July 7 1984 with my gf at the time, sister and two favourite cousins. What a day that was. Supporting bands if I recall were Nick Lowe, UB40, Santana and probably some others I forget now. Not a bad line up on stage with Dylan either

  • Sexual abuse allegations against Dylan, dating back to the 60s, when the plaintiff was a child, and they come on the last possible day:

    The lawsuit comes on the final day of the New York State’s Child Victim Act look-back window, which closed Saturday, 14 August. The measure had offered reprieve for adults time-barred from filing civil suits for abuse suffered as children.

    Dylan's spokesperson:

    A spokesman for Dylan, now 80, told the Guardian on Monday that “the 56-year-old claim is untrue and will be vigorously defended”.

  • That's the last day for a civil claim, but not a criminal claim, is that right?

  • Did they not bother to check Dylan's whereabouts in April/May 65?

  • Wasn't even shocked when I heard this today.

    I am huuuuugely bias but i'm confident he will be cleared of this in due course.

  • I’d have thought if you expect him to be cleared, because you expect that he’s innocent, you’d be fairly shocked to hear he’s just been accused of molesting a 12 year old in 1965.

  • You'd think right?

    He's a high profile figure and has been since the early 60's. To get this far without such an accusation is more shocking. None of my heroes had been accused yet so I was waiting for it.

    Fingers crossed the truth comes out either way.
