Today is Bob Dylan's 75th birthday. In a year where the world of music has lost a lot of great talents, it's nice to see one of it's legends hitting a milestone.
I'm sure you'll find plenty of articles that will focus on his life, career and legacy. You'll also see stories about how he is now focusing on doing albums of standards.
I'm going to look at some other musicians that have played his music. There are hundreds of Dylan covers. Musicians from all genres of music have taken his songs and tried to put their spin on them. These are my favorites.
Happy Birthday, Bob. May you stay forever young.
