I am a sometimes fan of Bob Dylan. I own many of his albums, though I don't listen to them so much these days. And I didn't get his son's albums (The Wallflower... what's his name?).

What is the source? I am a long time Dylan "freak" and have not read any evidence that he is a vegetarian. I did read an article that mentioned that he was eating chicken during the meeting. (That particular author was curious as to whether Dylan kept kosher; he decided he didn't.)

Here's an article about Bob Dylan's mother from a newspaper in Duluth, MN. She mentions that "he does like chicken every way." www.the-wallflowers.net/article063099.htm Bob is listed on many vegetarian sites as one of us but I have yet to see a quoted source or an anecdote to support this claim.

Hi Tabi, That article was from back in 1999! Have you found anything more recent? Let us know. Thanks.

He was, like many a vegetarian in the sixties, but stopped practicing in the mid-70's. That's where all the confusion comes from. He was for a while but now is not as far as I know.

On tour in 1980/81 he reported had a cook and carried wholefood suppies (dried beans etc..) Bob Dylan was certainly not vegetarian in the mid 1980s. On the set of the film Hearts of Fire he was observed eating an English breakfast of sausages, bacon etc. He also drank Tequila. An interviewer mentioned this. His tipple on stage recently is herbal tea!

He was in the 70s. Read his book "Tarantula" where (quite self-mocking) he talks about his "last song against meat" sent to "the Vegetarian Convention".

www.edlis.org/cafe Bob Dylan has never been a vegetarian. He has had contracts where vegetarian food was specified, but this was for others, not for him personally.
