Who is the real Leo in Tempest?


Is Bob really singing about Leonardo DiCaprio on Tempest? A report from the paper yesterday said the ‘Leo’ that Bob Dylan namechecks in the penultimate track off his 35th studio album is actually one Leo Zimmerman! Leo Zimmerman was a farmer from Germany who went down with the great ship, more info here. Although Bob has not disputed that he’s singing about Leonardo DiCaprio on ‘Tempest’ saying the song wouldnt have been the same without him (‘or the movie’) could he be actually singing about his namesake?
