Bob Dylan's Birthday
May 24, 2005
A big happy birthday to Bob Dylan who was born 64 years ago in Duluth, MN. Dylan is widely credited with pioneering introspective folk music, but he angered many fans when he went electric during the Newport Folk Festival in 1965. Although Dylan's career has taken many turns (including time as a Christian singer), he always manages to make good music. His most recent Grammy Award was for 2001's Love and Theft - which won for Best Contemporary Folk Album. Dylan's birthday comes on the same day that his son Jakob's band, The Wallflowers, release Rebel, Sweetheart. The senior Dylan tours minor league ballparks this summer with Willie Nelson and The Greencards.
