So a certain boy from Hibbing is turning 70 today, and everybody's finding a way to mark the occasion. Here are just a few of the ways you can partake in the celebration:
1. Tune in at noon today to KNOW 91.1FM in the Twin Cities (or listen online) for "Boy from the north country: Bob Dylan in Minnesota." While you're listening, check out these images spanning Dylan's career.
3. Explore Rolling Stone's special "birthday edition."
4. Is all this birthday talk a little too bright and cheery for you? Not to worry, you can always check out this interview from weeks before Dylan's 25th birthday - only recently published - where he discusses his heroin addiction and suicidal thoughts.
5. Of all places, the AARP Website has a series of tributes to Dylan from the likes of Judy Collins, Martin Scorsese and Bruce Springsteen. There's even a bit of juicy gossip from Marianne Faithful...
Of course you could just put on some songs by Dylan and enjoy the music.
