The single Like a Rolling Stone, hit #2 in the Billboard Hot 200, with his critically acclaimed album, ‘Highway 61 Revisited’ being released in 1965, followed by ‘Blonde on Blonde’, in 1966.
He has released over 37 albums across his career, the latest being ‘Fallen Angels’ in May 2016, and has won 11 Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and an Academy Award, he has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, received the Presidential Medal of Freedom and won the Nobel Prize in Literature.
