For a man with humble beginnings, Bob Dylan became someone very important very quickly. His nine-record run through the 1960s stands as one of the greatest strings of classic albums from any artist.
But he was no flash in the pan. Over 50 years since his ascension into the popular conscience, he continues to work hard and attain the adoration of millions.
From 1962's plaintive, heart-on-sleeve 'Song To Woody' to this year's Shadows In The Night, Dylan has penned hundreds of brilliant songs throughout his storied career.
