Way back through the mists of time to the year I was born, that’s 1959, Bobby Vee and his band hired a piano player. That pianist called himself Elston Gunn, presumably to make him seem like a western hero. Anyway it turns out that he didn’t have much in the way of piano skills; he could only play in one key and he didn’t own a piano. So things were never really going to work out.
However it turns out that Elston’s real name was Robert Zimmerman. He may not have been a good pianist but clearly Mr Zimmerman was an ace singer songwriter as he shortly changed his name again. This time to Bob Dylan!
