Happy Victoria Day and Happy 69th Birthday to Bob Dylan

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Victoria Day holiday.  

I also want to let you listen to one of my favourite songs by a man most consider one of the best song writers in history.

He has been covered by countless bands and so many of his songs were more famous when sung by others.  He has been covered in folk by Peter, Paul and Mary singing Blowin’ In The Wind in 1963 to one of metal’s founding fathers Jimi Hendrix performing All Along The Watchtower to more modern metal with Rage Against the Machine covering Maggie’s Farm and in a more mellow stream Norah Jones now covers “I’ll be your baby tonight”.  

Then we have Clapton and GnR each doing there own rendition of Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door and the White Stripes covering “One More Cup of Coffee” on their `1999 self titled album. Don’t even start me on how many Dylan tunes the Grateful Dead cover.

That, my friends, is widespread admiration.

Bob Dylan. Happy Birthday…Tangled Up In Blue
