I didn’t have the slightest idea that today was Bob Dylan’s 80th until I read the news today oh boy. So I am woefully unprepared but Christian pulled together a nice list and tribute.
And then something interesting arrived. I am no longer a Rolling Stone subscriber. But I do receive their newsletter. RS has for years treated Dylan as the messiah he did not ever want to be. In service of that, over the years they published quite a few interviews, lists, reviews – you name it. If you read all this it should add appreciably to your useless and pointless knowledge.
And thoughtfully – not a word one could always apply to Rolling Stone – in today’s newsletter they emptied the archives. It’s all there, from an interview in 1969 to lists to his greatest songs, etc.
So here you go. I don’t see the need to add my own list as you already have too much on your plate. There will be an exam later.
