Shameless Plug[edit]

I removed this from the wiki because to me it sounded like a shameless plug by somebody at this festival(Voodoo Experience)... "Jakob Dylan and the Three Legs have just been added to the already stellar Voodoo Experience lineup which will take place over Halloween weekend 2010 in New Orleans, LA." —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:28, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Court Yard Hounds[edit]

Would Jakob's collaboration with the Court Yard Hounds be worthy of a mention? article Samatva (talk) 22:15, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Old untitled comments[edit] is full of misinformation. Many of the so-called trivia items are false. For example, Jakob Dylan was born in New York, not Minnesota; he is the only songwriter for The Wallflowers, not "the main one"; he has recorded five albums with The Wallflowers, not four; etc. This web page can be edited by anyone and false information can be deliberately planted to "support" so-called "facts" for other Wikipedia pages. Therefore, this link is highly unreliable in serving as a reference for the statement that Heather Dylan is Jakob Dylan's adopted daughter. Separatehorns (talk) 21:44, 4 June 2008 (UTC)Separatehorns

I thought that Mr. Dylan met his present wife at Parsons School of Design in NYC?? shymoon06:15, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Jakob Dylan knew Nicole Paige Denny when they were children. He did not meet her at PS of Design. Howard Sounes Down the Highway: The Life Of Bob Dylan, p463. Educated Guest (talk) 19:22, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

no matter what redirects here why? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

I think "No Matter What" is a song he wrote. oncamera(t) 15:30, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Protection of Document[edit]

I requested protection of this document due to the dispute over claims made by a particular editor that Jakob Dylan adopted a daughter in 1997 and that Jakob Dylan and his family live in Pennsylvania. No validated or reliable references have been provided to prove any of the above to be true. Each time this information is removed from the bio, it is immediately reverted by the editor or his/her friends. Currently a bio about "Heather Dylan", the supposed adopted daughter, is on review for deletion on suspicion of hoax. Once the outcome of that process is finished, I hope we can reach consensus and request protection be cancelled. Daffidd (talk) 12:49, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

I think it's dumb for someone to make up lies about Jakob Dylan. He's not famous enough for anyone but his fans to care. We don't know very much about his kids but he has always said how many kids he has, their gender and the range of their ages (ie: from 8 to 11). He barely says anything about his kids. He wants them to have privacy so he doesn't tell their names, but he doesn't lie about the fact that they exist. That's just stupid. That story is so fake. In a recent interview (May 2008) he said that he has four boys from the ages 6 months to 13 years. A few photos exist with him, his wife and his kids and I've seen them and there are no girls besides his wife in the photos. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dylan369 (talkcontribs) 02:12, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Update: The offending article about Heather Dylan has been deleted and protected against recreation. As well, the author and several of his/her friends have been blocked indefinitely. I've asked for Jakob Dylan's bio to be un-protected. This is pending. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Daffidd (talkcontribs) 22:39, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

With the release of Seeing Things on June 10, 2008, the Jakob Dylan page needs to have the tense updated regarding this album. I'd update the page but clearly it's protected.--Mseanbrown (talk) 22:05, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

Personal Life[edit]

Is there a reason why the personal life section was deleted? — Preceding unsigned comment added by SydKat (talkcontribs) 21:11, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
