It’s Bobby’s Birthday!

It’s Bob Dylan’s 80th birthday on 24th May. One of the few giants of music still with us, and still challenging us with new moves and new sounds. I’ve a long association with Dylan, given that my Ballad of Bob Dylan, written as he was beginning one of his returns to prominence back in 1988. Last year comic book artist Lynsey Hutchinson designed a poster illustrating the song.
