Bob Dylan – The Artist

Bob Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, author, and visual artist who has been a major figure in popular culture for six decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when songs such as “Blowin’ in the Wind” (1963) and “The Times They Are a-Changin'” (1964) became anthems for the Civil Rights Movement and anti-war movement. His lyrics incorporated a wide range of political, social, philosophical, and literary influences, defied existing conventions of popular music, and appealed to the burgeoning counterculture, such as on the six-minute single “Like a Rolling Stone” (1965).

Knockin’ On Heavens Door – The Song

“Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” is a song by Bob Dylan, written for the soundtrack of the 1973 film Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. Released as a single two months after the film’s release, it became a worldwide hit, reaching the Top 10 in several countries. The song became one of Dylan’s most popular and most covered post-1960s compositions, spawning covers from Guns N’ Roses, Eric Clapton, Randy Crawford and more. Described by Dylan biographer Clinton Heylin as “an exercise in splendid simplicity”, the song features two verses, each of which represent the film’s title characters and American frontier legends Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.

Bob Dylan – The Shape

This record has been reworked into a silhouette of Bob Dylan based On Milton Glaser’s iconic design. Milton Glaser a New York graphic designer, designed the well-known poster, copies of which were included in slipcovers of Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits album when it was released.

Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid is a 1973 American revisionist western drama film directed by Sam Peckinpah, written by Rudy Wurlitzer, and starring James Coburn, Kris Kristofferson, Richard Jaeckel, Katy Jurado, Chill Wills, Barry Sullivan, Jason Robards and Bob Dylan. The film is about an aging Pat Garrett (Coburn), hired as a lawman by a group of wealthy New Mexico cattle barons to bring down his old friend Billy the Kid (Kristofferson).
