Dylan is on tour at the moment , but these days doesn't say anything on stage .It's been a while since he even introduced his band!
He's reluctant to say anything in public , not even about being awarded the Nobel prize.He has made no direct comment about that
As far as i know he hasn't commented on Leonard's death.
However , earlier this year he said a lot in praise of Leonard.I would even say ' loving praise'.

This was in an interview to David Remnick, who also interviewed Leonard in the summer where apparently Leonard told him just how ill he was . Maybe Remnick told Dylan in confidence and maybe that prompted Dylan to make his comments, which we know Leonard read and appreciated.

We will never know if Dylan spoke directly to Leonard in the final months. Any such conversation would be entirely private .But at least , for sure , he spoke indirectly to Leonard.
Leonard's work resonates
