There might be no other single person who's had as big an impact on the music that Paste covers as Bob Dylan. He topped the list of our 100 Best Living Songwriters (and Jack Pendarvis' hilarious 10 Best Dead Songwriters) and was featured on the cover of our 22nd issue. So rather than devote a single article or review to him today, as he releases his 33rd (!) studio album, Together Through Life (listen to the album in full here), we're pretty much just giving him the website. We've got Corey duBrowa's review of the record, but we've also got a really super hard, intensely geeky and impossible to solve Dylan quiz, a list of the 50 best Dylan covers of all time, a gallery of Dylan illustrations that we've commissioned over our seven years of existence and a poll of the best Dylan record ever. Plus we've dug into our Dylan archives (surprisingly rich for our young magazine) and brought back essays like William Gay's brilliant memoir detailing how Dylan shaped his life, David Dark's "I've Got My Bob Dylan Mask On" and Andy Whitman's "Listening To My Life" piece. The bard has inspired some great writing, and we thought today would be a great day to celebrate it. Below is our Dylan Takeover content, which will be updated throughout the day. Hope you enjoy.
