Bob Dylan - Voice Your Choice

Bob Dylan was born Robert Zimmerman on May 24, 1941 in Duluth, Minnesota, and raised in Hibbing, Minnesota. He became one of the most influential American songwriters and an innovator of the folk-rock style of music. He got his start playing in coffee houses in Greenwich Village and got signed to Columbia Records in October 1961.

This highly lauded singer/songwriter was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and won a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammy's in 1991.

As a recording artist he has appeared twenty-three times between 1965 beginning with Subterranean Homesick Blues, and with Sweetheart Like You in 1983. Considered by many as his signature song, Like A Rolling Stone featured Al Kooper on organ, who later went onto form Blood, Sweat & Tears.
