Happy Birthday to Bob Dylan, who turns 78 years old today. Born Robert Zimmerman in Minnesota, Dylan renamed himself after the Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas. The singer-songwriter produced anthems for young Americans in the 1960s that chronicled the nation's social unrest, like “Blowin' in the Wind” and “The Times They Are a-Changin.’” After leaving his mark on folk music, Dylan “went electric” and revolutionized popular music in 1965 with his six-minute single “Like a Rolling Stone” — enshrined by a Rolling Stone magazine poll of music professionals as the #1 Greatest Song of All Time. He also won the Nobel Prize in Literature and wrote a memoir, Chronicles: Volume One, which spent a year on the New York Times bestseller list.(1941)
