THE LOVE-SICK MAN HAD ALSO COBBLED TOGETHER A GROUP OF FIVE OTHER MEN TO SERVE AS VOCAL ACCOMPANIMENT FOR THE LATE-NIGHT LIVE PERFORMANCE, EACH OF WHO DONNED HOODIES WITH THEIR HOODS UP. BUT SOON AFTER THE MAN BEGAN TO SERENADE HIS EX, WHO HAD PREVIOUSLY TAKEN OUT A RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST HIM, SHE CALLED THE POLICE, LEAVING 50-YEAR-OLD GUITARIST BLOWIN IN THE WIND. ‘I HAD THE IDEA THAT I’D PLAY A BOB DYLAN SONG FOR HER,’ THE MAN TOLD POLICE.
