Woody Guthrie always starts his dust bowl ballads with a date and place... LOL

Bob Dylan was one on the most influential artist of his time. Influencing not just folk artists, but the Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, and the beach Boys. His music started to emerge in the 60's. A BIG event that changed the way future music was played was in 1965. Bob Dylan "Plugged in" his guitar and began playing rock n roll. It caused riots and uproar. Rock n' Roll reinvented itself!
