Dylan n' Young

Bob Dylan paid a visit to the childhood home of his good friend Neil Young prior to his November 2nd stop in Winnipeg. John Kiernan, who lives in Young's childhood house, told CBC News that he noticed his wife chatting with two men on his front lawn, and recalled, "I'm looking around and I realize, this guy (wearing a knit cap) has really great boots on, these sort of cowboy, motorcycle boots. And he was wearing really nice leather pants. And I realize I'm staring face-to-face with Bob Dylan."

According to Kiernan, Dylan and his tour manager were invited into the house and asked a lot of questions regarding Young's childhood bedroom: "OK, so this was his view, and this was where he listened to his music -- It suddenly dawned on me, when you're looking at Bob Dylan standing in a hallway, that he had a very parallel experience 200 miles to the south (in Hibbing, Minnesota), sitting in his room, listening to his music, looking out his window."
