Bob Dylan

Happy birthday, Bob Dylan! Today the iconic musician turns 72. In 1941, Dylan was born Robert Allen Zimmerman in Duluth, Minnesota. While performing in college, he began taking the name “Bob Dylan,” after the poet Dylan Thomas. It was during this time in the 1960s that his career really took off. He became known as the songwriter of the 60s protest movement, penning and performing many songs about the polarizing social issues of the time.
