Biography

Trying to encapsulate the life and career of Bob Dylan was an almost futile undertaking of journalists and biographers for well over five decades. As one of the most prolific and often imitated musical artists of the second half of the 20th century, Dylan remained throughout his career an elusive and often confounding talent; one not easily pigeonholed, dissected or even interviewed. But Dylan - even during long periods of artistic decline - retained his mantle as one of rock music's most indomitable figures, crossing generations by earning legions of new fans, while influencing countless musicians from Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles to Sheryl Crow and 10,000 Maniacs. Songs like "Blowin' in the Wind," "The Times They Are A-Changin'" and "Like a Rolling Stone" moved beyond being mere hits. They entered into our musical lexicon as part of American language and culture, making Dylan a bona fide music legend.

Bonus Trivia

.

"The saddest thing about songwriting is when you get something really good and you put it down for a while, and you take for granted that you'll be able to get back to it with whatever inspired you do it in the first place, well, whatever inspired you to do it in the first place is never there anymore, So then you've got to consciously stir up the inspiration to figure what it was about. Usually you get one good part and one not-so-good part, and the not-soo-good part wipes out the good part." – Dylan to Bill Flanaghan, March 1985, included in Flanaghan's book Written In My Soul
