The Weisman Art Museum's "Bob Dylan's American Journey, 1956â€“1966" exhibit is [over] and [The Current ran a live broadcast from the grounds. Details below.]
But really, what is the big deal with Bob Dylan? What is it about Bob Dylan that captures people's attention?
I can clearly remember how his music finally clicked with me when I was younger. There was a distinct moment when I thought, "Oh man, so that's what the fuss is about."Â He's given us an amazing body of work. That said, I'm not obsessively deconstructing his lyrics or declaring him a prophet.
Do you study Dylan? Consider yourself a Dylanoligist? Can you see why other people would?
