Born on Highway 61 in Minnesota, Robert Zimmerman moved to New York City in 1961 & changed his last name to Dylan, in honor of poet Dylan Thomas.

Playing folksy guitar in the exploding beatnick scene brewing in Greenwich Village coffeehouses, Dylan was discovered by John H. Hammond working as A&R for Columbia, who signed him "on the spot". Dylan's 1962 self-titled debut album was largely folk & blues covers, and only marginally noticed.

But the following year, Dylan's second album, "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" became the anthem for an entire generation. It was followed with the counter-cultural anthem of the century -- "The Times They Are A'Changin".

His lyrics sometimes seething with protest, other times doused in whimsical absurdities, Dylan captured the deeply rooted anxieties of nuclear bombs, wars & love shared by the young population -- making him the unwilling voice of a generation. 

Famously to the chagrin of some fans who wanted to keep him in preserved as a sort of acoustic guitar "folk icon-in-amber", Dylan began recording with an electric guitar -- to great effect. There was a pivotal cultural moment in at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, when Bob recruited members of the Butterfield Blues Band to back him for a set where he played electric guitar. 

Dylan first released Bringing It All Back Home, followed by his massive hit album Highway 61 Revisited in 1965.

In that time, Dylan recruited a backing band consisting of Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm & Garth Hudson -- former members of Ronnie Hawkins' The Hawks (who would become 3/5s of The Band). After a motorcycle accident that kept Dylan off the road for years, the whole group relocated to Woodstock, New York & would gather in the basement of The Band's house, nicknamed Big Pink in upstate New York to make music.

While the group was off the road, Columbia released Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits just five years after his debut album. Including a brilliant poster by Milton Glaser, the album remains Dylan's best selling. 

After a stream of successes in Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid (1973), Planet Waves (1974), Blood on the Tracks (1975) and The Basement Tapes (1975), Dylan embarked on a new venture -- playing smaller, more intimate venues. The concept would famously become The Rolling Thunder Revue. The traveling circus included Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Mick Ronson & more.

Proving himself to be a transcendent icon rather than a mid-century novelty, Dylan continued to innovate decade after decade with hit albums like Slow Train Coming in 1979, a collaboration with Grateful Dead, Dylan & The Dead, and Modern Times in 2006. Starting in 1989, Dylan began "The Never-Ending Tour" which continues today!
