Happy Birthday!

Today is the 70th Birthday of Bob Dylan (born Robert Zimmerman on May 24, 1941).

He has written 500 songs and made 56 albums since his first album in 1962.

In 1963 he became known for his new hit, "Blowin' in the Wind," which would become an anthem for the civil rights movement.  The song poses a series of questions about peace, war, and freedom; which is then answered with the refrain: "the answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind."
