      It is an honour and a priviledge to introduce you to the life-changing music of Bob Dylan!

      He is a folk singer who rose to fame in the 60’s for his songs which highlighted the social conflicts of the time, like the cold war and civil rights.

      He is probably, along with the Beatles and Elvis, one of the most influential songwriters of all time. In fact, without Bob Dylan, you wouldn’t have the Beatles most experimental and poetic music, like ‘Revolver’ or ‘Rubber Soul’. And without the Beatles? Well, I wouldn’t like to think what music would be like in 2010 if we didn’t have the Beatles…

      Try out these albums: “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan”; “Highway 61 Revisited” (which I think is one of the greatest albums ever made) – or maybe something more recent like “Time Out of Mind”.
