Fan
    (May 26, 1945- )
    Born in Brooklyn, New York
    Birth name was Alan Jules Weberman
    Self-described Dylanologist and garbologist
    Best known for going through Bob Dylan's garbage
    Wrote 'Concordance to the Songs, Poetry and Assorted Writings of Bob Dylan' (1971), 'My Life In Garbology' (1980) and 'Dylan to English Dictionary' (2005)
    Co-wrote 'Coup D'Etat in America: The CIA and the Assassination of JFK' (1992)
    Subject of the documentary film 'The Ballad of A.J. Weberman' (2006)
    Rolling Stone called him 'the king of all Dylan nuts.'
    He formed a 'Dylan Liberation Front' to try to force Dylan into making a public stand against the Vietnam War (1971).
    He started harassing a new generation of Dylans, claiming that Jakob is a heroin addict.
    He was sentenced to a year in jail for money laundering connected to marijuana sales (2001).
    Ironically, some of the evidence against him was found by the feds going through his trash.
    He claimed, 'I'm like Verlaine to Dylan's Rimbaud.' (Funny, I don't remember Verlaine stealing Rimbaud's garbage.)
    Dylan caught him going through the garbage and got in a couple of punches before riding off on a bike (1972).
    He said, 'I wouldn't fight back, because I knew I was wrong.'
    The introduction to one of his articles noted, 'Even if you do not agree with everything weberman does or thinks, one must concede he is a man of unique thought.'
