Bob Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman, May 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer. He has been influential in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s when his songs chronicled social unrest, although Dylan repudiated suggestions from journalists that he was a spokesman for his generation. Nevertheless, early songs such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'" became anthems for the American civil rights and anti-war movements. After he left his initial base in the American folk music revival, his six-minute single "Like a Rolling Stone" altered the range of popular music in 1965. His mid-1960s recordings, backed by rock musicians, reached the top end of the United States music charts while also attracting denunciation and criticism from others in the folk movement.

Amazing that i have been the"love of his life"since 1984 and am the best kept secret in music. See"when the night comes falling from thesky" video we became engaged later and and there is still a unusual relationshup.many songs reference me and when we had a fight he put out a"karma contract"out on me,we also partnered a business and much much more guess you'll have to read my book"Aftermath"for the incredible details.

I am 5'7" and I think Bob is not as tall as this. I've seen him plenty of times on stage, but a better guide is probably gained from looking at photos of him with other people. He's only small - a little gem!

coacoa1, WTF?

sarahMay 12, 2010

I agree that Bob dylan is a super hot guy!If i could date anyone he would be it!

I have no respect for any one who thinks too highly of themselves. Put up or shut up because I am gonna put it down for a while. Private people are real. Think Ill just act my age and I suggest it for anyone who has a heart. Have fun by yourself.

christine, sweetheart, the story told in the film is extremely distorted and according to Lou Reed, in no way corresponds to reality. Would you allow the use of your image on something unjustly defamatory? I love the movie and I`m a fan of Edie, but from what we know, her love for Bob was almost sick. Poor, poor girl.
