Bob Dylanplay artist mix
Bob Dylan ( born Robert Allen Zimmerman, May 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer. He has been influential in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he was both a chronicler and reluctant figurehead of social unrest. Early songs such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'" became anthems for the American civil rights and anti-war movements. Leaving his base in folk music revival, Dylan's six-minute single "Like a Rolling Stone" altered popular music in 1965. His mid-1960s recordings, backed by rock musicians, reached the top end of the United States music charts while attracting denunciation and criticism from others in the folk movement.
