Bob Dylan is arguably the greatest American artist and his remarkable career has spanned more than five decades. Longevity does not always correlate to success, but in Dylan’s case it certainly does. Not one to hold back, Dylan’s lyrics have often been viewed as controversial and his songs in the 1960s quickly became anthems for the anti-war and Civil Rights Movements. Dylan’s distinct style had led to worldwide fame as a recording artist and performer but his greatest impact will forever be his song writing.
