About Bob Dylan

 

Bob Dylan (born on May 24, 1941) is an American musician, singer-songwriter, artist, and writer, one of the most an influential figures in popular music and culture for more than five decades.

 

Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he a figurehead of social unrest. A number of Dylan's early songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'", became anthems for the US civil rights and anti-war movements. Dylan's six-minute single "Like a Rolling Stone" radically altered the parameters of popular music in 1965.

 

Dylan's lyrics have incorporated a variety of political, social, philosophical, and literary influences. His recording career, spanning fifty years, has explored many of the traditions in American song—from folk, blues, and country to gospel, rock and roll, and rockabilly to English, Scottish, and Irish folk music, embracing even jazz and swing.

 

Dylan performs with guitar, keyboards, and harmonica. Backed by a changing line-up of musicians, he has toured steadily since the late 1980s.

 

Since 1994, Dylan has published three books of drawings and paintings, and his work has been exhibited in major art galleries.

 

Biographer Howard Sounes placed him among the most exalted company when he said, "There are giant figures in art who are sublimely good—Mozart, Picasso, Frank Lloyd Wright, Shakespeare, Dickens. Dylan ranks alongside these artists."

 

Rolling Stone magazine ranked Dylan at Number Two in their 2011 list of "100 Greatest Artists" of all time. In their 2008 assessment of the "100 Greatest Singers", Rolling Stone ranked him at number 7.
