Bob Dylan is an influential American singer-songwriter, artist, and writer, who was came to fame in the 1960s with songs chronicling social unrest. Songs like "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'" became anthems for the American civil rights and anti-war movements, moving many to call him a spokesman for his generation.

Dylan has sold more than 100 million records since that time, which makes him one of the best-selling artists of all time. In music, he has received numerous awards including a Grammy, Golden Globe and Academy Award. He has also been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Minnesota Music Hall of Fame, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2008, the Pulitzer Prize jury iawarded him a special citation for "his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power." And in May 2012, Dylan received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Barack Obama.

Bob Dylan was born Robert Allen Zimmerman on May 24, 1941, in Duluth, Minnesota. Initially, he focused on rock and roll, performing covers of songs by Little Richard and Elvis Presley. The story goes that in high school, his band, The Golden Chords' performance at their high school talent show was so loud that the principal cut the microphone. After leaving high school, Bob turned his attention to folk music. By the time of his second album, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, in May 1963, he had begun to make his name as a singer and a songwriter. By 1965, he had achieved the status of leading songwriter of the American folk music revival.

Bob Dylan is still touring, with his Never Ending Tour that began on June 7, 1988, in which he has played roughly 100 dates a year for the entirety of the 1990s and 2000s. By May 2013, he and his band had played more than 2,500 shows.

From touring and album sales, Bob Dylan has amassed a net worth of approximately $180 million.
