Bob Dylan is undeniably one of the most influential rock and roll musicians of the last century.

Honored in 1989, Dylan was one of the early inductees to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Bruce Springsteen has said, in tribute to Dylan, "Bob freed the mind the way Elvis freed the body... He invented a new way a pop singer could sound, broke through the limitations of what a recording artist could achieve, and changed the face of rock and roll forever."
Nine Grammy Awards have been showered upon Bob Dylan, but he has also been honored outside the music business for his contributions to the social consciousness.
