Memoir by ’60s Dylan tour manager out in 2014

NEW YORK (AP) — A posthumous memoir by Bob Dylan’s tour manager during the 1960s is due out next September.

St. Martin’s Press announced Tuesday that it had acquired “Another Side of Bob Dylan,” by Victor Maymudes (may-’MOO-dess), who died in 2001. The book is being written by Maymudes’ son, Jacob, and will be based on recollections the elder Maymudes tape recorded shortly before his death.

Victor Maymudes first met Dylan in Greenwich Village in the early 1960s and for a few years served as his tour manager, a role he also filled in the 1980s and ’90s. According to St. Martin’s, the memoir will include Maymudes’ account of life on the road with Dylan, Dylan’s first meeting with the Beatles and his romances with Joan Baez and others.
