So today, May 24th 2011, is Bob Dylan’s 70th birthday. And I could’ve sworn he was at least 100... look at him! The genius singer, whose songs have been covered by classic bands like Jimi Hendrix and Guns N Roses, also gave birth to a not so classic band… The Wallflowers. I called Bob to wish him a happy birthday and asked him how he felt about being 70, his response: [mumbles]. I knew that’s what he was going to say. Happy Birthday Bob!Legendary musician Bob Dylan turns 70 on May 24. In his many years of making music he has influenced others like Jimi Hendrix and Guns N Roses.
