‘I haven’t heard from him since’: Has Bob Dylan severed ties with Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo?

Bob Dylan fans will remember the news of his lastest studio effort broke when recent sideman David Hidalgo mentioned it in the media.

Now, the Los Lobos co-founder says his relationship with Dylan may be broken.

Tempest, Dylan’s 35th album, arrived in 2012 — three years after the legendary singer-songwriter released a pair of albums, Christmas in the Heart and Together Through Life.

Hidalgo had worked on both. He ended up collaborating on Tempest, as well, but that’s where the narrative splits.

Dylan just completed a European tour that included a closing three-night stand at London’s Royal Festival Hall in support of the project. Hidalgo, meanwhile, moved on to a celebration of Los Lobos’ 40th year. That has included a well-received new stripped-down live recording.

Still, Hidalgo can’t help wondering about the leak that reverberated around the world of Dylan.

“That was weird,” Hidalgo now tells The Big Issue. “I mentioned something and it went everywhere. I didn’t know people were listening. I hope I didn’t piss Bob off by letting the cat out of the bag. I haven’t heard from him since.”
