New York City, 1972: It's Mick Jagger's 29th birthday. Mick's dressed as a lion tamer and of course his Rolling Stones life-partner Keith Richards is on hand in a stripey suit jacket. It's all the outrageous fashion sense we'd expect from these two in the early '70s, but then Bob Dylan shows up looking like a lumberjack -- and he's ok. He's more than ok, he's Bob Freakin' Dylan, he can wear whatever he wants. It's unlikely that any of these three rock stars can recall just what was being said at this moment, but it's tempting to think Keith had just asked, "Ay Bob, wazzat Rolling Stone song of yours named after us, or wot?" To which Dylan would have replied, "It ain't you, babe."
