Bob Dylan celebrates his 69th birthday today. He was born in Duluth, MN in 1941. When Bruce Springsteen inducted Dylan into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame in 1988, he said, "Elvis freed your body, Bob freed your mind."
While neither of those proclamations is true for me, I will say that Dylan has delighted and intrigued my mind and my ears for many a year. It's hard for me to imagine a world without Bob.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Dylan.
