When Bob Dylan was frequenting Greenwich Village clubs in the summer of 1975, he ran into Logan English at the Other End. According to Lucian K. Truscott IV in Rolling Stone, August 28, 1975, the following transpired between the two veterans of the New York music scene: "'That you, Logan?' Dylan asked sleepily. 'Yeah Bobby, it's me,' said English. 'Hey man, I thought you were dead,' said Dylan. 'I've heard the same about you a few times,' English replied. They both laughed."

BARBARA SHUTNER:
My husband Logan English and I met Bob Dylan at Bob and Sid Gleason's house... One night we were all sitting around and Woody said something like, "Play something" to this kid sitting on the couch. The kid was Bob Dylan, and he sang and it was just beautiful. So Logan said, "I'm working at Gerde's. I'm the MC. We'll get you to play there." So that Monday night, Bob came in and did his first set.

Quoted in John Bauldie, Wanted Man: In Search of Bob Dylan, London, 1990, p. 37.
