Dylan’s everywhere! Even in Marks & Spencers

Is there no limit to Dylan’s omnipresence?

In my last two visits to local Marks & Spencer stores, Bobby has been busy lulling shoppers into buying mode.

On my last visit to the town centre store, the middle-aged, middle class female population shopping for underwear (“you pay a bit more, but … “) was being serenaded by Like A Rolling Stone.

A week later, the seekers after the meaning of life (and overpriced fruit and veg) in the M25 megastore were bopping along to It Ain’t Me Babe.

Bob Dylan – “countercultural spokesman”: you kidding?
