The Voice of a Generation
Bob Dylan's music career blossomed in the early 1960s when he became heavily immersed in the folk music scene of New York City. While playing at clubs in Greenwich Village, he met other folk singers who shared his passion, including Fred Neil, Dave Van Ronk and Tommy Makem. Dylan received limited attention after the release of his first album, which was self-titled, in 1962, but by the time he released a second album the next year, his fortunes had considerably changed. He had a number of early hits, including "The Times They Are a-Changin," "Like a Rolling Stone," "All Along the Watchtower" and "I Want You." His music played a role in the social movements of the 1960s. In the following decade, his albums Planet Waves, Blood on the Tracks and Desire all reached No. 1 on the US charts. He returned to No. 1 with Modern Times in 2006 and Together Through Life in 2009. He has received 39 nominations from the Grammys alone, winning 10 of the awards, including the 1973 and 1998 Album of the Year, the 1980 Best Rock Vocal Performance for a Male, the 1995 Best Traditional Folk Album and the 1998 and 2002 Best Contemporary Folk Album. He also received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1991. Denoting his wider cultural impact, Bob Dylan is the only person besides George Bernard Shaw to receive both an Academy Award - the 2000 Best Original Song for "Things Have Changed" - and a Nobel Prize in Literature. He is also a recipient of the 2012 Presidential Medal of Freedom.
