In 2022, Bob Dylan released the book The Philosophy of Modern Song, a collection of his commentary on songs by other musicians. As this is his first book of new writing since 2004’s Chronicles: Volume One, the release was met with much anticipation. Some fans even spent $600 on an autographed version of the book. After realizing all of the autographed copies had an identical signature, though, fans began to question the authenticity. Dylan issued a rare public statement to apologize for using autopen to sign the books.
