Bob Dylan apologized for fake autographs on his $600 book


In 2022, Bob Dylan published the book The philosophy of modern song, a collection of his comments on songs by other musicians. As this is the first newly written book by him since 2004 Chronicles: Volume One, the release was received with much anticipation. Some fans even spent $600 on an autographed version of the book. However, after realizing that all the autographed copies had an identical signature, fans began to question the authenticity. Dylan issued a rare public statement to apologize for using the automatic pen to sign the books.
