Why See Bob Dylan?
What is left to say about Bob Dylan?
One of the most celebrated and influential artists of the last 60 years, Dylan started out as part of the burgeoning folk revival in the early 60's, winning popularity and acclaim with his 'finger pointing' songs that drew on social and political sources and became synonymous with the Civil Rights struggle.
But creatively, Dylan never wanted to be constrained to one genre or ideal, and his 1966 'switch' to electric was received as an outrageous betrayal by those who had pigeon-holed him as a protest singer. Luckily, he has never listened to his detractors and in this period released some of rock's most prestigious albums, including Highway 61 Revisited, with the lead track 'Like A Rolling Stone', which was voted number one on Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in 2010. There is more to this cultural chameleon than his hits, but to describe every nuance and tale would be a disservice, as there is nothing like seeing him live!
Since 1987, Dylan and band have taken on the world numerous times with the Never Ending World tour, bringing his immense back catalogue to audiences, whilst still recording and releasing new records. His legacy precedes him, there is not a folk or rock artist working today that is not in some way inspired by this legend.
