A short video clip of Bob Dylan arguing with some of his Irish fans about an autograph has surfaced online.
The video sees Dylan sat in a car while a male and female fan talk to him through the open window pleading with him to sign an autograph for them.
The male fan says to Dylan “it won’t take long” but the singer refuses, saying: “You don’t need an autograph, if you needed it, I’d give it to you.”
The female fan responds by saying she “doesn’t like him anymore”.
The previously unseen clip was posted onto Twitter by musicians Tandem Felix with a quote from the Irish fans saying: “What’s wrong with him today eh?”
It is believed the video comes from a documentary named Eat The Document, which focused on Dylan’s tour of the UK in 1966.
Dylan is widely regarded as one of the greatest songwriters and lyricists of all time but is often considered to be grumpy and disrespectful towards his fans.
He has been known to perform concerts to his fans without speaking a single word of interaction with the audience.
However, despite his occasional surly attitude, Dylan remains hugely popular around the world for his endless supply of brilliant music.
In his early days, he was a huge fan of the Irish legends the Clancy Brothers, and would often follow them around as they toured to pick up tips and see the way they worked.
