The Story: While on tour in Manchester, England, legendary folk singer Bob Dylan played his first electric concerts outside of the U.S. Longtime Dylan fans felt betrayed by his switch to electric rock and let him know that he was considered a traitor. As heard on many famous bootlegs, a fan loudly berated Dylan with the taunt of “Judas.”
The Truth: The recordings don’t lie; a man clearly shouted “Judas” at the stage. But what many don’t know is that he was
actually giving a “shout out” to Dylan’s new touring drummer, Judas “The Fink” Finkleburg. This incident has obviously been blown out of proportion in music history books.
