Happy Birthday Bob Dylan

(Gibson) Since he burst on the rock and roll scene in the early '60s, Bob Dylan has been consistently taciturn about his personal life before he became "Bob Dylan" at the University of Minnesota. But as time has passed, snippets of information from Dylan himself and interviews with contemporaries have shed more light on his early years.

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
