Perhaps more than anyone else, Bob Dylan, in his music, lyrics, and attitude, represented the 1960s generation. Beginning with folk music and moving on to rock, he expressed the hope, frustration, and anger of his followers. The culture of the 1960s has become popular again and Bob Dylan has a following among today’s teenagers.
