Bob Dylan, from its true name Robert Allen Zimmerman, was born
on May 24, 1941 in Duluth, Minnesota (the USA). Teenager, it
learns the guitar and the harmonica and writes his first compositions.
America, in full musical revolution makes it possible to this
young man to record its first album in 1961: "The Freewheeling'
Bob Dylan". This album brings a new blood to the music
folk and immediately launches Bob Dylan on the voice of success.
Thereafter it is directed towards a music plus rock'n'roll,
while preserving very poetic texts which astonish and impassion.
In 1966 a serious accident of motor bike curbs its career, but
Bob benefits from this period to reorientate its music which
becomes more country.
The Seventies are
the Dylan years which became a genuine star international, but
its inspiration of the beginnings leaves it little by little
and when in 1979 it leaves three religious discs the public
ends up being wearied. The Eighties, then especially the beginning
of the Nineties show nothing any more but the shade of Bob Dylan
which only works to meet its financial needs and any more its
heart in its music and its words does not put. It is necessary
to await 1997 and "Time Out Of Mind" to finally find
the artist with best of its form with compositions worthy of
interests which is rewarded by three Gramy Awards. Since, large
Bob, very continuously its "Never Ending Turn" (the
round without end) which carries out it to the four corners
of the world, A left in 2001 an album folk and in 2005, it composes
the band its of a film of Martin Scorsese ("No Direction
Home") who recalls his life. In 2006, with its forty fourth
album ("Modern Times"), Bob Dylan proves that it is
always also good in the space of ten memorable titles.
