Bob Dylan Ended a Friend’s Relationship With a Prank Phone Call


Bob Dylan met his longtime friend Louis Kemp at summer camp when they were both teenagers. Only a few years after this, Dylan’s life changed dramatically when he became a musician, but he remained friends with Kemp. They spent a great deal of time together over the years, and Kemp was one of his closest friends outside the music industry. While being friends with a celebrity may seem like it would have its benefits, Kemp said that Dylan actually ended one of his relationships with a prank phone call.
