Bob Dylan - poet, singer, songwriter and rock icon - is regarded as one of the most influential figures in modern culture and music. Seeking to retain the sense of Dylan as a man as well as a myth, this biography, written by a co-founder of the British "Wanted Man" magazine, relies heavily on Dylan's own words and those of his closest associates to place in perspective all periods of Dylan's life and work. Equal weight is given to each of three decades of Dylan's performing career: the early days as a radical folk singer up to the time he "went electric" in 1965; the mature period of world fame, covering his motorcycle accident, Woodstock, and the production of albums ranging from the widely-panned "Self Portrait" to those regarded as being amongst his best (eg "Blonde on Blonde", "Blood on the Tracks"); and the difficult 1980s which saw his conversion to "Born Again" Christianity and attempts to resurrect his career.
