Heads Up: Dylan Turns 70 This Month

Bob Dylan will turn 70 on May 24th. eHow has the following suggestions found at

How to Celebrate Bob Dylan’s Birthday
(Things you’ll need: harmonicas, CD players, VCRs, Bob Dylan CDs, Bob Dylan videos)
        1.  Write a private birthday card addressed to Robert Zimmerman, Bob Dylan's original birth name.
2.    Play a little harmonica in tribute to the man who made a name with this unique instrument.
3.    Break out your CD collection and play Bob's first hit original album from beginning to end. "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" was released in 1963 and was his first step on the path to international fame.
4.    Bust out your dusty tambourine and make some noise in celebration of one of Mr. Dylan's most famous ditties, "Mr. Tambourine Man."
5.    Rent the films, "Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid", "Don't Look Back" and "The Last Waltz," Bob's claims to fame on the movie circuit.
6.    Do something that makes you feel free. Bob Dylan is known for his timely, poetic lyrics and his ability to speak to our need for freedom.
