Bob Dylan’s Debut Post On Facebook

By David Cohen 

The times, they really are a-changing: Bob Dylan posted on Facebook for the first time ever Tuesday, and his inaugural post was related to President Barack Obama.

NME reported that Dylan performed in Madison, Wis., Monday night, and Obama had appeared at a rally in the city that same morning, adding that Dylan said during his show:

We tried to play good tonight since the president was here today … Don’t believe the media. I think it’s going to be a landslide.

Dylan took to Facebook Tuesday to clarify what he said:

Here’s pretty close to what I said last night in Madison. I said from the stage that we had to play better than good tonight, that the president was here today and he’s a hard act to follow. Also, that we’re not fooled by the media and we think it’s going to be a landslide. That’s pretty much all of it.

At the time of our post, Dylan’s post had 30,161 likes, had been shared 4,076 times, and had spurred 2,608 comments.
