Bob Dylan BioGraphy

Bob  was born on May 24, 1941.His’s birthplace is Duluth, Minnesota, United State. His real name Robert Allen Zimmerman (Robert Allen Zimmerman).His ancestors were Odessa Jews. His father, Abram Zimmerman, had his own electrical appliance store, and his mother, Beatrice Stone, was involved in raising children. The artist’s parents were part of a friendly Jewish community. He has a brother, David. The musical development of young Dylan was seriously influenced by the work of the American singer Woody Guthrie, who performed folk and country. Dylan’s first musical experiences were performing songs from Guthrie’s repertoire.


Bob’s interest in music began to show in childhood. Initially, he was fond of blues and country, and as a teenager he began to listen to rock and roll, which was then gaining popularity among young people. During his school years, he founded several amateur groups. The guys covered the hits of famous artists, including songs by Elvis Presley. After receiving the certificate, he successfully passed the exams at the University of Minnesota. By that time in his biography, he began to show more interest in folk music than in rock and roll. According to him, such music was deeper in meaning and perception of feelings. During his student years, he continued to perform on stage. He often played concerts at a local café and also became one of the members of the Dinkytown folk scene. An interesting fact is that it was at that time that he decided to take the pseudonym “Bob Dylan” (Bob is an abbreviation for Robert, Dylan is the name of the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas).


The first professional recording was released by an American singer in 1962 – this is an album with an unpretentious title Bob Dylan. The basis of the album is a rehash of classical folk pieces. However, Dylan’s next album – The Freewheelin ‘Bob Dylan – almost entirely consists of songs of his own composition. He became the musician’s first serious success. The album peaked at number 22 on the American music charts, and was subsequently certified platinum. And one of the members of The Beatles – George Harrison – said that the “Beatles” heard this album of Dylan to the holes.

Personal life

Dylan’s first true love was the artist Seuss Rotolo, whom he met in the early 60s. However, their long-term romance never led to a wedding. After that, the guy began to court Joan Baez, who also performed folk songs. He wrote many compositions for his beloved, however, this relationship did not have a serious continuation. Then he dated for a while with actress Edie Sedgwick and singer Dana Gillespie. Once he met the model Sarah Lowndes, with whom he managed to find a common language. As a result, in the fall of 1965, the lovers officially legalized their relationship. The couple had four children. Initially, there was a complete idyll between the spouses, but in the 70s they began to move away from each other. This led to a divorce initiated by Bob. In the subsequent years of his biography, he had many girls, but none of them was able to win his heart. In the summer of 1986, he remarried his backing vocalist Carolyn Dennis.
