He’s survived punk, disco, a deep dive into faith, the rise of boy bands and electronica, Soy Bomb and going electrical. Now, 78-year-old Bob Dylan has once more proven the younger children the way it’s accomplished, scoring his first No. 1 on any Billboard chart together with his 17-minute tune, Homicide Most Foul.
As exhausting as it’s to imagine, the Voice of a Era by no means had a No. 1 on the Billboard charts beneath his personal title. This time, within the more and more fractured chart world, his musical examination of the JFK homicide tops the Rock Digital Track Gross sales class, promoting 10,000 downloads.
Dylan has hits he has written rise to No.1. His Blowin’ within the Wind was taken to No. 1 in 1963 by Peter, Paul and Mary, and the Byrds’ scored the highest slot together with his Mr. Tambourine Man in 1965. As unusual because it appears, such classics as Like a Rolling Stone, Wet Day Girls #12 & 35, and Issues Have Modified had been caught wanting the fence, all stopping at No. 2.
Dylan stays a street warhorse, doing greater than 60 dates per 12 months after years of doing greater than 100 per 12 months on his By no means-Ending Tour.
