Albury's mayor Kevin Mack offers an obituary for Bob Dylan while promoting the entertainment centre's 2018 line-up.

Not dead yet: Bob Dylan in action. His music will feature at the Albury Entertainment Centre next year in Dylanesque, a tribute show. Other works on the program include Julius Caesar, Madame Butterfly and a Circus Oz show.

FOLK singer Bob Dylan is well-known for singing The Times They Are a-Changin' and they did yesterday when he was mistaken for being dead by Albury’s mayor.

Kevin Mack was promoting his city’s 2018 entertainment centre program, which has a Dylan tribute show, and was asked by The Border Mail whether he was a fan.

“Bob Dylan died recently, it was a bit sad,” Cr Mack replied.

“I think Bob was a poet in his own right and certainly had a lot to say during the 60s and 70s, I think it’s sad to lose that quality of person.”

When it was pointed out Dylan was alive, Cr Mack said he must have been thinking of someone else, but couldn’t instantly recall who.
