24 of May Dylan will be seventy. Truly amazing what the man has achieved and is still achieving. 34 studio albums, more than 500 songs, more than 3100 concerts, dozens of awards, among others 11 grammy’s, one Oscar, two doctorates at Universities, several exhibitions around the world with his artwork, listed as one of Time’s most influential people of the 20th century, nominated several times for the Nobel Literature Prize, and so on. I picked out exactly 70 milestones to celebrate and honour Dylan. And although the 70 milestones are in number of cases personal choices (e.g I miss the great song abandoned love in every list you can find on the Internet, and i have chosen the concert in Madison Square Garden because of the phenomenal performance of the Times we’ve know, a song by Aznavour), I think most people who admire Dylan will back up 80 % of the choices (at least).
