Elsie is a music lover, have been singing in my home most of my life, my home wouldn't be home without music filling my day.

Bob Dylan - Azkena Rock Festival 2010

Bob Dylan - 50 years Performing to the World.

Bob Dylan born Robert Allen Zimmerman on the 24 May 1941 legally changed his name to Bob Dylan in 1962.

Bob Dylan was a very popular singer in my early years as a young mother with five children and I clearly remember one of his early songs " Blowin in the wind".

As time passed by his songs got to the top of the charts, "Like a rolling Stone" in 1965.

In 1966 he crashed his motorcycle, he was thought to have injuries to his neck, never confirmed but he didn't tour again for nearly eight years.

But I stilled enjoyed listening to his music, he is a remarkable person to this day for all his accomplishments in life.

2012 he has the release of his new album "Tempest", it was in the top 100, due to the released September 11, some 50 years of performing to the world, his love of music, a great artist.

European tour in October and November 2015.

It is said "Bob Dylan is one of the most loved and greatest loved songwriters and performers of all time". Would you agree?

      Dylan is one of my favorite artists. I've seen him in concert four times, the last of which was in 2005. He and Willie Nelson did a tour of U.S. baseball stadiums. What an awesome concert!

      My favorite Dylan album is Desire, recorded in 1975. Emmylou Harris sings backup. If you've never heard the album, I highly recommend it.

      We have a lot of Bob Dylan stuff at our house. On a side topic, I was just reading how a staff writer from The New Yorker was fired after having made up quotes for his book -- quotes that he said Bob Dylan made. For shame.
