Background


Born Robert Allen Zimmerman in Duluth, Minnesota, Dylan grew up listening to Blues and Country music on the radio and eventually formed a number of short-lived bands at his high-school. After experimenting with Rock & Roll, Dylan became enamored with folk music and traded in his electric guitar for an acoustic one. After dropping out of college, he played a number of shows on the folk music circuit before moving to New York City in 1961.

Bob Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman) (May 24, 1941 - ) is an American singer-songwriter, author, musician, poet, and disc jockey who has been a major figure in U.S. culture for five decades.
Much of Dylan's most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he became an informal chronicler and a reluctant figurehead of American unrest. A number of his songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'" became anthems of the anti-war and civil rights movements, although Dylan himself declined to remain actively involved in political affairs.
His later work has shown steadfast devotion to many traditions of American song, from folk and country/blues to gospel, rock and roll, and rockabilly, to English, Scottish, and Irish folk music, even jazz and swing. Dylan performs with the guitar, keyboard, and harmonica. Backed by a changing lineup of musicians, he has toured steadily since the late 1980s on what has been dubbed the "Never Ending Tour."
Although his accomplishments as performer and recording artist have been central to his career, his songwriting is generally regarded as his greatest contribution. Compositions such as "Like a Rolling Stone," "Mr. Tambourine Man," "You've Got To Serve Somebody," and many others earned him the reputation as the most influential singer-songwriter of the twentieth century. When Dylan informed Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter that he had taken two of his unpublished songs to record in the early 1990s, friends of Hunter's were aghast. Unfazed, Hunter responded by saying, "Bob Dylan doesn't have to ask, man!"
