Bob Dylan Complete Bio & Career

Nobel laureate, Bob Dylan is a name that will be enchanted for all the generations to come. He is not a normal being who makes a name and then just vanishes. He is here to stay until our last breaths with his poetic words and songs that will keep enchanting in our ears for the coming ages. His poems then turned into songs that went on to be changed in the Civil right Movement and the anti-war movement. What do we call art? He is a blend of all the creative art pressed in one person.
 
His name was Robert Allen Zimmerman which he changed in 1962 to later become Bob Dylan when he saw a few poems by Dylan Thomas which meant to be free and bother least about the name change. Dylan had great deals to handle his personal life and professional life. At the age of 20, when he was asked to sign a contract he faked to be orphan to legally be eligible as he was minor. In the year 1959, he also wanted to join "Little Richard". He never liked the Rock n Roll music as he phrased it that though the music and rhythms were great the songs never carried a serious meaning. His dreams were also true when he performed the cover songs for Little Richard and Elvis Presley.
 
He dropped out of college soon and travelled to New York to give his performance with Woody Guthrie.
