The Bob (as in Dylan)

"Tight Connection To My Heart"

Ever since falling in love with the song "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" at age nine, I've been tangled up in the genius of Bob Dylan. That's 30 years of devotion through good, bad and sometimes downright ugly times. But with a body of work second to none, The Bob's music is truly a source of never-ending inspiration. You may call it an unhealthy fixation. I call it a healthy fix.
