* TheTeamWannabe: Al Kooper's organ riff on "Like A Rolling Stone" is one of the most recognisable in music history. Despite the fact that he didn't know how to play the organ and wasn't supposed to be on the record at all, but basically walked into the studio, sat down at the organ and started fooling about because nobody explicitly told him ''not'' to. Dylan liked it and [[ThrowItIn kept it]].
