He's been called the "voice of a generation," and there's no one else quite like Bob Dylan—he's been THE major figure in rock and folk for five decades. His fans are fervent and span many generations.
Dylan stepped out onto the world stage after coming to New York City from Minnesota in the early 60s where he played the coffeehouse circuit and quickly rose through ranks of the folk community. His fan base grew solidly from that point on. He's been admired by The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones and nearly everyone else in and out of the music business for his prolific songwriting abilities.
Dylan was a rebel who refused to conform to what anyone wanted him to be. He did everything his way, is a fiercely independent artist, a multi-instrumentalist and unique vocalist as well.
What is your favorite Dylan era? Were you a fan of his folk beginnings, his politically charged mid-60s anthems, or his electric work with the Band? Were you a "Nashville Skyline" fan? Is "Blood On The Tracks" your favorite or were you more a "Born Again" person? Is "Triplicate" your Sunday morning jam?
From going to electric to dipping his toes in country, standards, blues and even a little gospel, Dylan has something for nearly everyone, and if you're a true fan, you'll be able to name some of his best-loved songs by just one lyric. Think you've got what it takes?
