The 76-year-old has dabbled in a wide variety of genres, from folk and blues to gospel and country, rockabilly to folk music; and made them his own. But music aside, his songwriting has itself been instrumental to his success all these years, penning songs like "Knockin' On Heaven's Door", "Like a Rolling Stone", the politically charged "The Times They Are a-Changin'" and so many more. He still regularly releases new material till this day.
Awards include the Presidential Medal of Freedom from former President Barack Obama in May 2012 and the Nobel Prize in Literature "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition" in 2016.
