MUSIC - Dylan had the chance to see the birth of rock'n roll

Bob Dylan May 23 celebrates the 70 years and still does not allow her to hang up his guitar and harmonica. The pioneer of the protest song has this year launched a world tour for his 50 year career which has notably led by China and Vietnam. In the columns of The New York Times music critic David Hajdu is also to wish a happy birthday this iconic singer.

But he recalls that Dylan was part of an exceptional generation of artists born around 1940 who all had the same snap music: "They had 14 years in 1955 or 1956, when rock 'n' roll made its appearance "Hajdu writes, recalling that the first songs of Elvis Presley were beginning to be disseminated.

"I can not help but wonder what a 14 year old with the talent of Bob Dylan would have done had he been born three or four years ago, when pop music was still in his pre-rock with marshmallow Teresa Brewer and Vic Damon. " To mark this anniversary, Rolling Stone offers on its website a special Bob Dylan which contains a ranking of the ten best songs.
