Bob Dylan Details
Born in Minnesota in May of 1941, Robert Allen Zimmerman, better known as Bob Dylan, is an award-winning singer-songwriter. As a teenager, Bob formed several bands and enjoyed performing covers of songs by Elvis Presley and Little Richard. It wasn’t until his college days that he started to go by the name Bob Dylan. In a 2004 interview, Dylan explained the name change saying, “You're born, you know, the wrong names, wrong parents. I mean, that happens. You call yourself what you want to call yourself. This is the land of the free.” He legally changed his name in 1962.
Ever the free spirit, Bob Dylan relocated to New York and played at various clubs around the city. After a radio performance and a positive review from New York Times critic Robert Shelton, Dylan was signed to Columbia Records. He released his first self-titled album in March of 1962 with a mix of folk, blues and gospel songs.
In 1963, Bob Dylan became a prominent voice in the civil rights movement. He sang alongside Joan Baez at the March on Washington on August 28, 1963. In fact, Dylan’s third studio album, The Times They Are a-Changin’, reflected the turbulent political climate at the time. Two years later, his album Bringing It All Back Home featured his first songs using electric instruments.
As he continued to rise to fame, the pressures increased. Scheduled for tours, television appearances, and even commissioned to write a manuscript, Bob Dylan had a lot on his plate. After a motorcycle accident in 1966 left him with several broken vertebrae in his neck, Dylan took a much-needed break from touring.
Despite bumps in the road, Bob Dylan always came out on top and he’s taken home many awards over the years. In fact, Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2016 “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.” He also received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012 during Barack Obama’s presidency.
