Baker's Dozen

Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives

5. Bob DylanBob Dylan

Bob Dylan obviously turned the wind around for many of us, almost like The Beatles did making it possible to not have to be a smoochy crooner. Here he was in a black suit, representing a break from the establishment and everybody in my generation just wanted to say and do the same thing, removing the shackles of the past. He represented a new dawn for the protest movement, which was extremely important for my generation.
