ABOUT BOB DYLAN
I will show my age by saying that I remember all Bob Dylan's songs and love most of them! In a career spanning six decades, Bob Dylan is responsible for some of the most influential albums of all time, including:
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan
Highway 61 Revisited
Blonde on Blonde
His "socially and politically charged singles", "Blowin' In the Wind" and "The Times They Are A-Changin'', were songs that I grew up with. They are widely considered to be among the most important songs in modern day music.
Bob Dylan was born in 1941 making him now 77, and it is with great awe and excitement that we will once again be fortunate enough to be able to hear him sing live. He was last here in 2014, where he played several shows to huge sold out shows in theatres across the country.
This will possibly be the last opportunity to do so, so I for one will be going to see this legendary singer! He is a folk, rock singer-songwriter and was born Robert Allen Zimmerman in Minnesota.
When he was in college, he began singing folk and country songs, and took on the name "Bob Dylan." His first record contract was signed in 1961. Dylan has continued to tour, as well as release new studio albums, including Together Through Life (2009), Tempest (2012), Shadows in the Night (2015) and Fallen Angels (2016).
Bob Dylan has received Grammy, Academy and Golden Globe awards, as well as the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the Nobel Prize for Literature. By 1964, Dylan was touring and playing 200 concerts annually. He had become tired of his role as "the" folk singer-songwriter of the protest movement.
He then started to produce songs that were less politically motivated. In 2016, he released "Fallen Angels", which was his 37th studio album!
Last year, in 2017, he continued to celebrate the classics with his three-disc studio album "Triplicate", which features 30 American songs, including "Stormy Weather," "As Time Goes By" and "The Best Is Yet To Come."
Some of his songs from the early days include the following:
Like a Rolling Stone
Mr Tambourine Man
A Hard Rain's a Gonna Fall
Knockin on Heavens Door
Dont Think Twice
Just Like a Woman
It Ain't Me Babe
I Shall be Released
Its All over Now, Baby Blue
Shelter from the Storm
