Bob Dylan buys a set of bagpipes. (Hope you like his new direction!)

While in Glasgow, Scotland, last weekend to play a couple of shows, Bob Dylan bought a new instrument: A set of traditional bagpipes.

“He’s always wanted to learn,” said a spokesperson for the Glasgow’s National Piping Centre, according to Reuters. “It’s a lovely sound when they are played well, and something to be appreciated.”

Obviously, the news provides ample comedic fodder for late-night chat show hosts given that many people (this writer not included) believe Dylan’s vocals to be reminiscent of some relatively obscure, and possibly broken, wind instrument. Though, as a Dylan fan myself, I’ve rarely thought that, say, “Blowin’ In the Wind” was sadly lacking in the bagpipes department.

On the other hand, this has given me the idea for a Curb Your Enthusiasm-style sitcom in which a playing-himself Dylan irritates his peace and quiet-loving neighbor (I’m thinking Rob Schneider) by trying to learn a different instrument every week. NBC? You have my number.
