"I call my Dylan sculpture Plugged-in Dylan or Electric Dylan to salute his courage in breaking away from expectations and trying something completely new, exciting and totally controversial by going electric. "How dare he", they all cried. This is not the behavior of "folk" folk. Dylan was actually booed and shouted off the stage when he first plugged in."
"The essence of any creative spirit is to constantly move on and into the unknown and...you know...CREATE. The true artist doesn't find his niche and settle there. It is the journey that is important. The doing of it is everything to the artist." - Jim McNalis
Bob Dylan was one of the most influential singer/songwriters of the 20th century. His folk songs "Blowin' in the Wind" and "Times They Are a-Changin'" became anthems for the civil rights and anti-Vietnam war movements.
