robert allen zimmerman, 70 today

I don't know when I first heard Dylan but it was probably on my father's record player as a small child and I was probably too busy pestering the cat or colouring in to notice the music. Had I heard it, I probably would have hated it anyway.

Fast forward fifteen years or so and I was off to Uni, that's when it kicked in. A couple of those repackaged best of albums and my Dylan worship was underway, to this day the largest section of CD shelf in my house is devoted to Dylan albums. A good friend bought me tickets to see him live once, when I was down in the dumps, it is the only time I have ever felt truly star struck.

Bob, you enigmatic weirdo you, happy birthday.
