Wishing the happiest of birthdays to Bob Dylan! Mr. Robert Allen Zimmerman, a spry 71 years old today!
I can’t even imagine where my love of music would be today without Bob Dylan. I was fortunate to have grown-up listening to his music and he was the first artist who’s music I really began collecting. Before the days of Spotify, iTunes, Napster, etc. and getting my hands on some of his CDs (hey, if I was older it would be all about the vinyl) was always something I looked forward to. I think I wore through my Desire disc listening to it on repeat so much. Plus I’ll never forget the first time I ever got to see him live, June 19, 1995 Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey OPENING for the Grateful Dead! What a sight and scene it was.
To someone who has had such an influence on so many individuals, a tip of the hat for all you’ve done so far and what you will do in the future!
