From Bob Dylan's first hard-driving blues number at summer camp to the rollicking Rolling Thunder Revue concert tour, the legendary musician's childhood best friend had a front-row seat to the action. Now Louie Kemp has released a backstage pass of sorts into the mythology of Dylan, in the form of a memoir released this month, dishing on everything from the folk hero's Passover Seder meal with Marlon Brando to his own food fight at a Chinese restaurant with Joan Baez.As rambunctious preteens at a Jewish camp in the north woods of the Midwestern state -- Dylan grew up just over the border in the blue-collar mining town of Hibbing, Minnesota -- the friends got in their fair share of trouble, notably for a shaving cream prank on their peers that saw them steal a car.The performer then asked Kemp to produce his "Rolling Thunder Revue" -- the concert tour featured in Martin Scorsese's genre-bending 2019 documentary -- that saw Dylan sweep into smaller towns with a cast of fellow musicians including Joni Mitchell to play for those priced out of his larger concerts.
