In case you somehow don’t know anything about the man born 71 years ago today, here’s an eight-minute profile:
Whether he likes it or not, he is truly The Voice of a Generation. Dylan has created so many brilliant albums, so many wondrous songs … and he’s still out there playing music. He’s been running the Never Ending Tour since June, 1988 (that’s 24 years, folks!), and shows no sign of stopping.
I know, I know … no Seattle or Washington content whatsoever. Tough shit. Bob’s a special case.
