Aimee Mann: Boxing Clever

David Burke, R2/Rock'n'Reel, November 2007

AIMEE MANN reckons she could take Bob Dylan in a boxing bout. It would be a close run thing but age and height advantage would, according to Mann, ultimately tilt the decision in her favour. "He's shorter than me – and he's older. So if I couldn't take him, at least I could run from him! I could clinch my way through it. I understand he's a pretty good boxer. Apparently he takes it pretty seriously. He's got an underground gym somewhere beneath a synagogue somewhere."
