Just what happened that July 29, 1966, ain't exactly clear. Dylan was riding in upstate New York, not far from the future site of the Woodstock Festival, when he and the bike parted company. The extent of his injuries, again, is unclear. Facial abrasions, unconsciousness, even broken vertebrae were reported, forcing cancellation of his upcoming concert at the Yale Bowl. Rumors were rampant: Dylan was horribly disfigured, hopelessly paralyzed, quite possibly dead.
