Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the poet laureate of rock & roll.
The voice of the promise of the '60s counterculture.
The guy who forced folk into bed with rock.
Who donned makeup in the '70s and disappeared into a haze of substance abuse.
Who emerged to find Jesus.
Who was written off as a has-been by the end of the '80s, and who suddenly shifted gears releasing some of the strongest music of his career beginning in the late '90s.
Ladies and gentlemen - Columbia recording artist, Bob Dylan!
