(Vocals, guitar, b. 1941)

Dylan had already conquered the folk and rock’n’roll fields completely by the time he recorded in Nashville for the first time in 1965. That was for the rock-flavoured Blonde On Blonde album, but he was soon back to cut the more obviously country projects John Wesley Harding and Nashville Skyline, which helped kick off the country-rock movement.
