He came across as a very disturbed individual as did those around him. Rather confirmed all the suspicions surrounding him.

Struck me Dylan was very indulgent towards him on the tape, considering.
On Wiki says he is also very extreme politically.

http://dylanology.org/

and a lot more if you google for the guy.

Can't imagine why you'd want to either read about Weberman or listen to Dylan if you could spend the same time reading up on the microbiology of dental plaque or how to make origami starfish.

Ah, yes, Jack...but after you have mastered origami starfish and know all there is to know about dental plaque...it is THEN that the quest to listen to Bob Dylan begins in earnest! ;-)

A J Weberman was a completely obsessive asshole who made it his job in life to harass, spy on, idolize, analyze, and criticize Bob Dylan. It seems to have almost been a love/hate kind of thing since Weberman was on the one hand convinced that Dylan was a socio-political prophet and on the other hand incensed at his idol for "abandoning" overt political protest songs.

He repeatedly rooted through Dylan's garbage cans trying to find revealing information. This upset Bob's wife Sarah, which upset Bob. He ended up accosting Weberman on a New York sidewalk after one of these garbage-robbing incidents, punched him out, knocked him down and bounced his head off the sidewalk a couple of times.

Hooray for Bob! ;-) It's nice to see that sort of spirit in a homeowner. Weberman took no legal action over the incident. He was perhaps gratified at receiving such direct attention from his idol, probably went around for days proudly showing off the bruises to friends and associates...

Not necessary, Little Hawk. I used to go target shooting with a couple of friends, and I still have my Lee Sonic ear-valves. They're very good for protecting the ear drums from rude noises.
