Pete Townshend has long been a fan of Bob Dylan. He even knows that Dylan was born in Duluth. But maybe he doesn’t know where Duluth is.

On Thursday night while the Who’s farewell tour landed in the Atlanta suburb of Duluth, Ga., the guitarist expressed his enthusiasm for being in Duluth. “Dylan was born here,” he said.

Duluth, yes. But the one in Minnesota, not Georgia.

Read the full report from Melissa Ruggieri at the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Roger Daltrey even set up Townshend’s faux pas.

Maybe by the time the Who comes to Minneapolis on Oct. 10, Townshend won’t get fooled again and he’ll realize that he’s in the state of Dylan.
