For the years in between, Gilbert visits Woodstock and Greenwich Village, New York, where he investigates Dylan’s secluded life before his return to the road in 1974. Gilbert recreates the singer-songwriter’s 1966 motorcycle accident, pays a visit to Big Pink, examines Dylan’s first encounter with The Beatles, and even confronts fanatic Dylanologist A.J. Weberman.
