Datebook: May 24 – Bob Dylan turns 70

leave a comment »

Bob Dylan was born on May 25, 1941. A major figure in music for five decades, most of his celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he achieved an informal, figurehead status for chronicling social unrest. His earlier songs “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are a-Changin” became anthems for the US civil rights and anti-war movements. NPR says happy birthday to Bob Dylan on Talk of the Nation today. Here’s the link.
