Simon checked out Dylan’s “Self Portrait” album in 1973 as an eighth-grader at a University Heights middle school. Simon, now 73, says he found it between two other Dylan albums in his personal vinyl collection.

He was an eighth-grader in middle school in 1973, but is now 73?

He must have either been the oldest eight-grader in his year, or he’s now actually 63. I think it’s the latter.

Also, while Self Portrait is decent, I would’ve been more impressed if he’d been holding onto Blonde on Blonde.

Wow, this is one cool library.

As a follow up to my earlier post, the Associated Press has amended its report:

This story has been updated to remove the age of Howard Simon.

His age cannot be determined.
