The most influential artist in popular culture!
Bob Dylan has been covered and copied by almost everyone who’s attempted to write a song. Some might even say that he invented modern songwriting.
His influence is so great, that it’s difficult to find an artist post-’60 who has not been heavily influenced by Bob Dylan, directly or indirectly.
His classics include a huge selection of songs, making it hard to pick a handful to sum him up but let’s give it a go!
Blowin’ In The Wind, Mr. Tambourine Man, Hurricane, Knocking On Heavens Door, All Along The Watchtower, Subterranean Homesick Blues, Like A Rolling Stone, Tangled Up In Blue, One More Cup Of Coffee, Just Like A Woman, and Make You Feel My Love.
Bob Dylan covers
Some people only know Dylan as a writer, having discovered him through songs covered by other artists.
The most famous one is All Along The Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix, in my opinion, the best recording ever made.
Other famous cover versions include Make You Feel My Love by Adele, Knocking On Heavens Door by Guns N Roses, Mr. Tambourine Man by The Byrds, and of course, Blowin’ In The Wind by Peter Paul and Mary.
If you want to find out more about Bob Dylan’s incomparable career, there are numerous books written about him, perhaps the best guide is found at the website Bob Dylan Come Writers and critics.
