Dylan leaves hospital

Rock legend Bob Dylan has been released from an undisclosed hospital where he was treated for a potentially fatal infection. "I'm just glad to be feeling better. I really thought I'd be seeing Elvis [Presley] soon," Dylan said through a Columbia Records spokesman.

Dylan's Los Angeles publicist, Elliot Mintz, said the singer was discharged at the weekend and was expected to recover fully in four to six weeks - in time to begin the North American leg of his concert tour in August. Reuters - Los Angeles
