Happy Birthday Bob Dylan!

Wishing a Happy 71st Birthday to Bob Dylan!

Dylan was a huge influence on The Beatles’ songwriting, particularly on John Lennon. This is evident on songs like “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away,” an early example of the more introspective writing style the band starting using after listening to Dylan’s records.

Happy birthday Bob!

The Beatles and Bob Dylan

The Beatles met Bob Dylan during the end of their U.S. tour on August 28th, 1964. The artists were introduced by their mutual friend, writer¬†Al Aronowitz, and they spent time together in the Beatles’ hotel room. Many believe Dylan turned The Beatles on to marijuana for the first time, which heavily influenced the band in both their image and songwriting.
