‘Like a Rolling Stone’
Bob Dylan rose to fame in the 1960s, at first playing the folk circuit in Greenwich Village at the start of the decade. Songs such as “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “The Times They Are a-Changing” and “Like a Rolling Stone” became anthems for the counterculture and social causes during that era.
He is perhaps best known for his insightful lyrics. Dylan has experimented with many musical genres during his career.
The Americanarama Festival of Music with Dylan will be on a national tour this summer, going coast to coast to play mostly outdoor venues.
