Bob Dylan: get the local angle

Bob Dylan's number one album isn't just his victory, you know. Oh, no: it's also Liverpool's. At least, according to to the Liverpool Echo:

Liverpool Local News
Liverpool hero Bob Dylan is top of the album chart with Together Through life

The paper's basis for claiming Dylan as a "Liverpool hero"? Erm... that he played a gig in the city:
JUST days after his sellout appearance at the Echo arena, superstar Bob Dylan leapt straight to the top of the album chart – almost 40 years since his last number one record.

And, hey, if you want to read a causal link in to 'appearing at an Echo-sponsored building' and 'having a number one record', that's your prerogative, right?
