Irish rocker Bono is suspicious of Bob Dylan's "so-called eccentricity" - he is convinced the legendary singer is hiding behind a mask.

The U2 frontman claims BLONDE ON BLONDE star Dylan conceals his true self beneath a facade - and the real Dylan is a strong family man who adores his children.

He says, "I think underneath all the so-called eccentricity, which I think is just a mask, there's a very true person.

"He's a good father - I've seen him with his children - with a moral compass, and who can get lost at sea like everybody.

"But I think he's very strong."
