Dylan trivia winners announced!
Congratulations to Lois Dobrin and Danny Hechter! Both correctly answered our Bob Dylan trivia question and will win copies of “Dylan Different,” the newÂ album of Dylan covers byÂ Madison, Wisc.-based jazz pianist and composer Ben Sidran.
To refresh your memory, the trivia question was:
Robert Allen Zimmerman changed his name to Bob Dylan; but this is not something new in his family. Dylan’s maternal grandfather, Ben Stone, changed his surname at some point. What was it?
According to “Just Like Bob Zimmerman’s Blues: Dylan in Minnesota” by Dave Engel, the death certificate for Ben Stone lists his father’s surname as Solemovitz.
Thanks to everyone who entered the contest!
