In the song God, off Plastic Ono Band, does anyone know what John is referring to when he says he doesn't believe in Zimmerman? I thought maybe it could be referring to Bob Dylan because that's his real name, but do any of you know anything about this?

It is indeed Dylan. I think John was calling him out on the whole name change thing, which is kind of hypocritical considering he changed his middle name from Winston to Ono.

I think he just was calling out all the 60's hippie folks. I think (don't have the song at the ready) that the previous name was Kennedy, and he needed a long name, so he chose Zimmerman over Dylan.

I thought it was more towards the cult following of Dylan by how young people were following in Dylan's footsteps almost with the anti-war, drugs, folk concept.

Thanks. I guess I should clarify to say 50's/60's hippie folks.

From "Lennon Remembers":

 

Interviewer: Why did you choose to refer to Dylan as Zimmerman and not as Dylan?

John: Because Dylan is bullshit, Zimmerman is his name.

Yoko: He changed his name.

John: You see, I don't believe in Dylan. I don't believe in Tom Jones either in that way. Zimmerman is his name. My name    isn't John Beatle, it's John Lennon. You know, just like that.

 

(For the record, "Tom Jones" was born "Thomas John Woodward". Wasn't aware that there was anyone named "John Beatle".)

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.
