A poem is a naked person… Some people say I’m a poet.
It is impossible to overstate the significance of Bob Dylan. As Springsteen so elegantly put it, ‘Dylan freed the mind, the way Elvis freed the body.’
Today the great man turns 68 and there is no sign of slowing down. His 33rd studio album, ‘Together Through Life’ recently hit number 1 in both the US and the UK and he has embarked on yet another leg of the Neverending Tour with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp.
If you haven’t had your Bob-fix today, do yourself a favour and have a look at these clips… the man has still got the fire, just check out the 2009 live performance of Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat.
Happy birthday Bob,
