Happy Birthday Bob Dylan

In '66, Bob Dylan released Blonde on Blonde, one of the greatest double albums ever made. And speaking of '66, that's how old he is today.

There's a few imitations of Bob on YouTube, from the somewhat bizarre (and completely senseless if you've never heard of Andy's Gang)... this surprisingly valid sendup - you'll never hear "Home on the Range" the same way again.

But to really pay respect to Bob you've got to go right to the source. So here's his video for "Series of Dreams," from the first Bootleg Series box set. It captures him through the decades as best as a video can, with visuals almost as riveting and compelling as the song.
