The cool air is awesome

        Bob Dylan is one of the greatest tunisians who has ever lived, but he has been a worldwide superstar for decades, because of his particular   abilities as a guitarist, poet, singer and songwriter. While several people recognize all sorts of facts and trivia about Bob Dylan, I recognize something most of them do not. Bob Dylan hates a/c. It’s true! How do I recognize this? Well, several years ago, my rock band was allowed to perform with Bob Dylan on his tour of the Southeast. We played just before he and his own band took the phase in a beautiful, 2,500-seat theater. While wandering around backphase before the show, I cautiously peeked into his dressing room. He was not inside, despite the fact that I immediately noticed it was genuinely humid and stuffy, and my own band’s dressing room was quite comfortable in comparison. That’s when I saw that someone had used pieces of cardboard and duct tape to carefully cover all the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C vents in Dylan’s room! Clearly, an effort had been made to guarantee that no cool air made it into that space. I asked Bob’s bandmates about this, and they confirmed that Dylan was somewhat superstitious about a/c. They said he believed the artificially cool air would affect his vocal cords downsidely and make it more strenuous for him to sing well while all of us were in concerts, and for that reason, whenever he went out on the road, he always demanded that no a/c be used in his dressing room, his hotel rooms or on his fancy tour bus. I bet you did not recognize that!
