Bob Dylan is one of my favorite musicians. I’ve been working on a human-interest story about him. He’s believed to be one of the most influential singer-songwriters of the 20th century. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016.

He was famous for ballads; some were ripped from the headlines about the plights of the countless confused, accused, misused, those strung-out and worse.
Though some fans said, his singing voice was grating and irritating, the verses, written in a distinctive style and rhythm, united people.
