George Harrison said, "Dylan is so brilliant. To me, he makes William Shakespeare look like ............" Who?
Question 1 Explanation:
ater, Petty and Dylan collaborated in the Traveling Wilburys. “We’d sit down together and write lyrics. What a privilege. I remember he said to me, ‘If you are stuck on a line, just say what it is you want to say, and don’t worry about the metre or the rhyme or anything. Just write down the sentence, and then find the key words and, wallop, you’ve got the line.’ He tended to write many more verses than we needed, and sometimes maybe in the seventh verse something would pop up that was better than anything in the first three. George (Harrison) once told me ‘Bob makes Shakespeare look like Billy Joel’. He was joking, but Bob is so far above the rest of us. He is the wandering minstrel, the travelling troubadour and his gift is so great.”

What Motorbike was he riding when he had crash in 1966 ?
Lambretta Sx 200
Question 12 Explanation:
Was Dylan riding his Triumph? John Hammond speaks... John Bauldie interviewed John Hammond on 26 October 2006. The interview was published in issue 44 of The Telegraph fanzine, Winter 1992. The topic turned to Dylan's motorcycle crash. Hammond said: Ah, the crash. Well, Jack Elliott had left a bike in Bob's garage up there. It was an old AJS, a great old bike, 500 single, the kind you can break your leg trying to kickstart. The tyres were flat and I think Bob wanted to have the thing repaired, so... but maybe I shouldn't say this. This is for Bob to talk about it if he wants to talk about it. It's not my place to talk about it. Bob did get hurt. I imagine it shook him up to the point where he looked at his life very carefully. Jack Elliott confirmed his ownership of an AJS 500 (which he says he took back to America from England in 1963) in an interview with the Montreal Gazette. www.edlis.org/car
