No artist has had a career like Bob Dylan’s. It spans more than 50 years and includes more classic albums than almost any other artist. It also includes its fair share of duds, but who else has released a classic LP like ‘The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan’ way back in 1963 and is still making modern-day masterpieces like ‘Modern Times’ 43 years later? From his acoustic singer-songwriter beginnings to his plugged-in revolutionary records of the mid ‘60s to the country music that followed to the late-career rebirth on pre- and post-new-millennium albums like ‘Time Out of Mind’ and ‘Love and Theft,’ Dylan has crafted a body of songs that is as timeless as it is contemporary. He’s made one of rock’s best double albums (‘Blonde on Blonde’), breakup records (‘Blood on the Tracks’) and all-time greats (‘Highway 61 Revisited’). Nobody else has that kind of track record.
Birthdate: May 24, 1941
Selected Discography: ‘Highway 61 Revisited’ (1965), ‘Blonde on Blonde’ (1966), ‘Blood on the Tracks’ (1975)
As an artist who had already reinvented himself several times over the years, Bob Dylan’s 1997 rebirth turned out to be not only his greatest comeback but also the greatest third act in rock ‘n’ roll history.
Undaunted by the infamously contentious reception he received when he debuted his new electric sound at Newport, Bob Dylan stayed plugged in when he put together his new band and took them to Texas in the fall of 1965.
Of all the low points Bob Dylan somehow steered into throughout his long career -- the early '70s, the late '70s, the early '80s, etc. -- none was as low as the one he reached by the mid- and late-'80s.
