Bob Dylan møter pressen i 1965

Bob Dylan ♬

Robert Allan Zimmerman was born into a Jewish family in 1941. 21 years later he changed his name to Bob Dylan. Robert’s love of music developed in his early years, and he listened to a lot of rock and roll on the radio. At school, he also played in several bands with his friends.

Whilst studying at the University of Minnesota, he traded rock music for American folk music. His electric guitar was replaced by the acoustic guitar and the harmonica.

Did you know…?

In secondary school Zimmerman and his band ‘The Golden Chords’ played in a school talent show. The music was so noisy that the headteacher turned off their microphones.

Bob Dylan gets a record contract

In the winter of 1961, Dylan moved to New York. He was looking to fulfill his dream of becoming a full-time musician. He performed all over the place and received a lot of positive feedback. A producer from Colombia Records was so impressed by what he heard that he offered Dylan a record contract.

Dylan’s debut album was recorded in only three days, but the critics were not very impressed. As a musician, Dylan was not fully trained, and his lyrics were serious, dark and sad. As an artist performing on stage he was quite good, but his record didn’t sell very well. This didn’t bother Dylan too much, as he was already moving on to new musical projects.

Did you know …?

When Bob Dylan came to New York in the winter of 1961, he lied about his childhood. He told people that he was an orphan from New Mexico who traveled with a circus.

Bob Dylans debutplate

A master conquers the world

Following his debut album, Bob Dylan was a well-known name across the United States. However,it was his second album including songs like ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ and ‘Masters of War’ that made him a household name in Europe as well.

In the early 1960s, there was political unrest across the world. Martin Luther King Jr delivered his speech about his dream of an equal society, US President John F Kennedy was shot and the United States and the Soviet Union were on the brink of a nuclear war.

Bob Dylan was not particularly interested in politics, but did emphasize the value of youth. He believed that everyone had a responsibility to save the world from destructive forces. He was therefore seen as a spokesperson for the younger generation.

“Blowin’ in the Wind” played live on TV in March 1963

The last record as a protest singer

During the summer of 1963, Dylan participated in the most important organized political event of the century, The March on Washington. This was a protest movement against racism in the United States. The fight for the rights of Black Americans continues until this day, with the most recent movement being Black Lives Matter in 2020.

With his record “The Times They Are a-Changin”, Dylan became a legendary protest singer, with lyrics such as “Keep your eyes wide. The chance won’t come again” summarizing his time as a protest artist. Dylan stopped being a protest artist, but his fans didn’t understand that until many years later.

Did you know…?

In the song “Only a Pawn in Their Game”, Dylan places responsibility on the police and politicians for playing Black and White people against each other, not too dissimilar to what has happened during the Black Lives Matter” protest movement.

Bob Dylan – The Times they are a-Changin'

Can’t please everyone

By the mid-1960’s, Bob Dylan had become common property in the United States. He advocated peace and stood up against poverty, racism and social inequality. Dylan himself disliked this role and was quoted saying “One thing I know is that you can’t please everybody” in an interview. “Either they like me or else they slam me.” Ultimately, he couldn’t bear to live this way and decided to follow his own path and write songs about the things that he himself was interested in.

From folk music to rock

Dylan released the album “Bringing It All Back Home” in 1965. On this album he mixes the lyrics from folk music with rock music. He invented a whole new genre of music called folk rock.

Dylan had become known as a singer-songwriter with his acoustic guitar, but times were changing. He wanted to write music according to his own rules and no longer follow his fans’ requests for new protest songs or folk songs. Dylan wished to use rock music to bring his poetic lyrics to life.

In the summer of 1965, Dylan shocked fans at the Newport Folk Festival. He played electrical instruments on stage for the first time. A large part of the audience were angry about this and startet booing. As a result, Dylan left the stage after only playing three songs. Enough was enough.

When he came back on stage, he played two songs on the acoustic guitar and harmonica. This was his farewell to his old audience and the acoustic guitar.

Like a Rolling Stone

With the song “Like a Rolling Stone”, Dylan changed musical history forever. In this song, he experiments with most things. The song is over 6 minutes long, and he mixes genres and instruments. The lyrics are full of contempt for those who have previously criticized him. Dylan almost ‘spits’ out the text and doesn’t pay much attention to the listener with his aggressive attitude.

Nobody had heard music like this before, and it changed the way artists and audiences viewed the world. All the rules had been broken and music was completely liberated. Bob Dylan had set a new standard and at the same time become a timeless icon.

Born-again Christian

In the late 1970s, someone threw a silver cross up onto Bob Dylan’s stage. He picked it up, hung it around his neck, and took it as a sign from God. Over the next few years, Dylan used his music and the stage to preach about his savior. This was disliked by many of his fans, who left his concerts. Critics also dissociated themselves from this. Where audiences wanted to hear “Like a Rolling Stone”, Dylan would rather talk about Jesus.

Honor in the White House

In 1997, Dylan received an honor from President Bill Clinton in the White House. The President’s words when Dylan received his medal have become somewhat legendary. “He probably had more impact on the people of my generation than any other creative artist. His voice and lyrics haven’t always been easy on the ear, but throughout his career Bob Dylan has never aimed to please. He’s disturbed the peace and discomforted the powerful.”

Painting

Bob Dylan has released 34 studio albums and is one of the world’s most famous musicians since the 60s. Throughout his career, he has painted. In the autumn of 2010, he exhibited over 40 paintings in Copenhagen. These paintings presented scenes of everyday life in Brazil. One art critic stated that the paintings would never have been displayed in an exhibition were it not for the artist’s musical fame.

Nobel Prize in Literature

As the first songwriter ever, Bob Dylan received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016. He had been nominated many times before, but it had been perceived by most people as a joke. He received the award for innovation in the American song tradition. Dylan is no doubt a great lyrical talent and has created lyrics that will be around for the rest of time.
