[Audio] Talking With Bob Dylan

View Comments

Using several raw audio cuts, Dylan talks about a career that has spanned 50 years. Ending the audio is a cut not from Dylan, but from a certain Beatle sharing his thoughts on Dylan’s music.

Description of each cut (play the full audio below.)

Cut 1: Bob Dylan’s songwriting career has spanned nearly 50 years but even he’s surprised on how some of those early songs were written.

Cut 2: On leaving his small Minnesota town of Hibbing.

Cut 3: About the differences between him and his parents.

Cut 4: Early on in his career, Bob Dylan knew singing was his destiny.

Cut 5: Bob Dylan has been called a prophet and a voice of a generation- but on his 70th birthday today, Dylan disagrees.

Cut 6: Bob Dylan received many accolades over his nearly 50 years in the music business, however, he doesn’t put much stock in it.

Cut 7: On his 70th birthday, Bob Dylan talks about why he still writes songs and makes music.
