Became the poster boy for protest music with album and song The Times They Are a-Changin' in 1964.
Enraged the folky masses by plugging in for 'Subterranean Homesick Blues' in 1965. Allen Ginsberg pushed a broom in the background.
Released a Christmas album for charity in 2009, featuring the ludicrously jaunty polka 'Must Be Santa' as lead single.
Audio prankster Mike Bauer channelled Dylan in March this year to lend some profundity to Rebecca Black's otherwise heinous 'Friday'.
The only city graced with two dates on his current tour, Glasgow must be in favour with the living legend, now in his 70s but still going strong. With support from Newcastle's most famous bandana wearer and Dire Straits man Knopfler.
Country/folk/rock from the living legend, now in his 70s but still going strong.
