GRAMMY AWARD winning Bob Dylan is an American
Often regarded as one of the greatest songwriters of all time,
Dylan has been a major figure in popular culture during a career spanning more
than 60 years. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when songs
such as "Blowin' in the Wind" (1963) and "The Times They Are a-Changin'" (1964)
became anthems for the civil rights and anti-war movements. His lyrics during
this period incorporated a range of political, social, philosophical, and
literary influences, defying pop music conventions and appealing to the

In his early years, spending all of his spare time in the company of other musicians, Bob Dylan amazed them with his ability to learn songs perfectly after hearing them only once. He also began writing songs at a remarkable pace, including a tribute to his hero entitled "Song to Woody."
In the fall of 1961, Dylan's legend began to spread beyond folk circles and into the world at large after critic Robert Shelton saw him perform at Gerde's Folk City and raved in the New York Times that he was "bursting at the seams with talent." A month later, Columbia Records executive John Hammond signed Bob Dylan to a recording contract, and the young singer-songwriter began selecting material for his eponymous debut album.

Early in 1997, those who lived in hope of an artistically born-again Bob Dylan had cause for optimism:
musician Jim Dickinson told a Memphis newspaper that he had played on some recent, Daniel Lanois-produced Dylan sessions featuring new
material Dylan had composed while stuck at home in Minnesota during a blizzard. According to Dickinson, one cut was seventeen minutes long, and overall the material was "so good, I can't imagine he won't use it."
The seventeen-minute song turned out to be "Highlands," the closing cut on the critically acclaimed "Time Out of Mind," which was released in September and became Dylan's first gold record of the decade. The success of the album was
noteworthy, but 1997 will go down as the year that Bob Dylan knocked on heaven's door, literally: in May, on the eve of a European
tour, he was hospitalized with histoplasmosis, a potentially fatal infection that creates swelling in the sac surrounding the heart.
Happily, the songwriter made a rapid recovery, and was back on the road by August and continued to tour through the remainder of the year, including a September date in Rome at the behest of Pope John Paul II.
