Bob Dylan – The Legend Of Music On This Earth  

 

Blood on the Tracks, the Chicago based Bob Dylan Cover Band, is covering many songs from Bob Dylan, and is considered by many to be the finest Bob Dylan Tribute of all times.  The name of the band comes from one of Bob Dylan’s most critically acclaimed albums, Blood on the Tracks. 

 

Bob Dylan is an American born on May 24, 1941 in Minnesota, US with the birth name Robert Allen Zimmerman. Dylan legally changed his name to Bob Dylan in August 1962 and made an important move for his career which was signing a management contract with Albert Grossman.  Bob Dylan is a multitalented person.  He is a singer, writer, musician, producer, director, poet and painter as well. Bob is ruling the world of popular music and culture for five decades. A number of his songs became anthems for the US Civil rights and anti-war movements.  

 

Exit from his folk music culture and entrance in popular music was with the six minute single “Like a Rolling Stone” which was a revolutionary track and very popular. The Lyrics of Bob Dylan songs are integrated with a variety of societal, political, philosophical and literary influences. His recording career of fifty years has explored many distinct traditions. 

 

Bob Dylan usually gives performances with guitar, keyboard, piano, vocals and harmonica backed up by a changing arrangement of musicians. His achievements as a recording artist and performer have been central part of his career but his songwriting is considered to be the greatest contribution in music history. 

 

From December 1962 to January 1963, Dylan made his trips to the United Kingdom. He was invited by TV director Philip Seville to appear in a drama “The Madhouse on Castle Street” in this period. 

 

Many of his most famous early songs were first reached the public through more immediately delicious versions by other performers such as Joan Baez, the Byrds, and Jimi Hendrix. At the end of 1963, Bob Dylan felt manipulated and constrained by the folk and protest movements.  

 

In August 2007, another achievement for Bob was the award-winning film on his biography “I'm Not There” which was written and directed by Todd Haynes. It was released bearing the tagline "inspired by the music and many lives of Bob Dylan"
