Bob Dylans toilet is blowing in the wind

Bob Dylan's toilet smell blows in the wind

Chemical smell from bathroom used by singer's guards disturbs neighbors

updated 4:22 p.m. ET, Tues., March. 17, 2009

LOS ANGELES - Bob Dylan has sung about wind many times -- winds of change, the "Idiot Wind," and the winds that hit heavy on the borderline.

But some of his California neighbors Tuesday were singing a new tune about what is blowin' in the wind from his Malibu toilet.

A family living near the 67-year-old folk and rock icon's house in the posh California beachside community of Malibu have complained to city officials about an outdoor portable toilet, which is apparently used by guards on Dylan's compound.

Cindy and David Emminger say the toilet wafts fumes from waste treatment chemicals, and that the smell carried by breezes from the Pacific Ocean makes their family feel ill.

"It's a scandal 'Mr Civil Rights' is killing our civil rights," David Emminger told the Los Angeles Times.

A helicopter from a local television station hovered over Dylan's property this week, capturing video of the offending toilet.

But Malibu Mayor Andy Stern said other neighbors report smelling nothing from the toilet, and that he has left the matter to the enforcers of the city's code on objectionable odors.

"I really have not involved myself in Bob Dylan's toilet, and by the way I haven't involved myself in anyone else's toilet in Malibu," Stern told Reuters.

A spokesman for Dylan did not return calls.

Dylan, whose latest album "Together Through Life" is due out April 28, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. His hit songs include "Like a Rolling Stone," "All Along the Watchtower" and "Blowin' In the Wind."

I read that article in the newspaper. Hard to tell exactly
what going on. Is Bob on tour or away? Perhaps a text
message is in order. If it was Bob Dylan's poop in
this shithouse, they'd be lining up for miles just to take a whiff.

Bob is from my hometown, and still to this day, can't stand his music.

He has played his hometown ONCE in his music career. He mentions it in his songs, but never seems to make it back here?

I know more about Highway 61 that he ever will...
