Born in Duluth, Minnesota back in 1941, Bob Dylan is considered one of the best songwriters of all time. He has been a huge influence in popular culture during his careeer spanning nearly 60 years. At the age of ten Dylan wrote his first poems and, as a teenager, taught himself piano and guitar.
He started singing in rock groups, imitating Little Richard and Buddy Holly. But when he went to the University of Minnesota in 1959, he turned to folk music, impressed by the musical work of the legendary folk singer Woody Guthrie.
In 2016, Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition”. He sold more than 125 million records worldwide and has been inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
In 2020 he sold his entire songwriting catalog to Universal Music, more than 600 songs for an estimated price of around $300 million. The list includes more than 60 years of his compositions. Such as “Like a Rolling Stone,” “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are A-Changin’.”
The company will collect money any time another musician covers any of those songs. Also will earn for allowing the songs to be used in commercials, movies, streaming or sold commercially.
