Go to Google Images, type Bob Dylan, voila ... click for big!

Happy Birthday Bob Dylan! 70 today, May 24th 2011. How will he celebrate that one (will he celebrate that one?!).

My Dad had one Dylan album when I was growing up – one of the greatest hits ones. Dad isn’t a fan. I remember liking Subterranean Homesick Blues, but otherwise wasn’t moved much. Then for a while in college I went through a bit of a phase, but it didn’t last. Punk rock, ska, 90’s Indy stuff, all took over. Until 7 or 8 years ago, and Dylan started to drift back in, then became a bit of an obsession. Now I’m safely through to the other side, and can just enjoy him!

So how to celebrate his birthday? Well if you’re a fan, play him loud. In the house, out in the car, washing the dishes. The world wouldn’t be the same without him. Happy Birthday, Bob!
