Bob Dylan is a Wave

In the AARP magazine this month, we are reminded that
Bob Dylan will be 70 years old on May 24th.

Bob Dylan is a Wave

bob dylan is a wave.
he's a moving body of energy built of melodies,
words, rhythms, ideas, and attitudes
that have swept over the world
since the year of my birth;

like jazz music he is an American invention,
one of the best representatives we've ever had.

thank goodness for every person, place,
thing, or animal that ever inspired bob
to write music.

if a man is measured by the amount of suffering
he eases and the amount of joy he gives
the world, then bob has more than done
his job.

bringing the intellect and the emotion
together in song that sounds like no one
else is a rare form of expression.

bob dylan is a rare artist.
they don't make them like him anymore.
bob dylan is a wave.

Anthony Kiedus
