Happy Birthday Bob Dylan
He was born on this day in 1941 in Duluth, Minnesota. He wasn't Bob Dylan then, just Robert Allen Zimmerman. In 1948, when Dylan's father was diagnosed with polio, the family moved to nearby Hibbing, at 2425 7th Avenue East (a street now renamed named "Dylan Drive"), to be precise, where he spent the rest of his childhood and high school years.
Dylan attended Hibbing High School, graduating in 1959. A copy of the '59 yearbook with his high school photograph is located at the Hibbing Public Library, and the very same piano that Dylan played in school is still used in the school today. more on this story
