It began as just
a simple fansite displaying some of my personal favorite articles, pictures, etc. as well as basic updates with his tour schedule.
But as I became more and more of a fan, I realized I had a lot more questions about the man behind the music. That is when
this website really began to grow. I'm not ashamed to admit that I had questions about his personal life (why couldn't
he have ended up with Joan??) and I wanted them answered. At the end of the day, I'm clearly here to express my love
of Dylan's music. That is what is most important. But this site is for the fans who want something more. What was
going on in his life that inspired the music? From love to politics and everything in between, Dylan used these personal turmoils
and joys to make the music that we all love. I don't want this page to be seen as a "gossip" website. I have so much
respect for Bob Dylan as an artist, and I just want to have a deeper understanding of him (don't we all?).
My name is
Leslie and I'm a young woman living in Maryland.
I think I had
discovered Bob Dylan's music in 6th grade. I had always known the name, I had read about it him a lot when I would read about
the Beatles (my first & true love). When I was in 6th grade, the family had gotten a record player & set it up,
so I decided to rumage through my mom's record collection to see what I could find. I of course pulled out albums by groups
like the Beatles & the Who - but then I saw it. The Times They Are A-Changing. I saw an angry young Dylan in grainy
black and white looking up at me & it intrigued me. I set down the rest of the records, and took Dylan's with me
to the turn-table. I put it on, & I must say, my life was the never the same. By the second song I was in tears (Seems
weird, but I'm not kidding!). I was just blown away, I had never heard anybody else like him. I found a new love.
I found out all I could about this man. I bought books about him, & began collecting his albums on CD &
record. Since becoming a fan, I've made it to three wonderful Dylan concerts. After all these years, my love for him and his
music is still strong & he continues to be an influence in my life.
