About the Author

Described by the New York Times as 'the only the Dylanologist worth reading', Clinton Heylin is the author of the acclaimed Bob Dylan- Behind the Shades (1991; revised 2001) and over two dozen other books on music and popular culture, including biographies of Sandy Denny, Van Morrison and Orson Welles, and the two classic studies of punk's origins, From The Velvets to The Voidoids and Anarchy in the Year Zero. An ex-pupil of Manchester Grammar School, and with two degrees in History, he has been a full-time historian and critic for over three decades. He lives in Somerset.


Whether you've read one book on Bob Dylan or one hundred, THIS is the one you want to read and refer to from this day forward. If the basic story of the Bard from Hibbing is oft told, familiar to anyone that's been paying attention, this new work leaps a couple light years forward with much newly revealed material and deep scholarship. If somebody's got to tell the tale, we can all thank our holy electric pickups and mystical typewriter keys that it was up to Clinton Heylin * Lee Ranaldo, Sonic Youth *
Gripping...you feel that Heylin understands what he [Dylan] was going through... a forensic analysis of Dylan's early life that, for depth of research alone, is hugely impressive -- Will Hodgkinson * The Times, *Book of the Week* *
Clinton Heylin is the eminence grise of Bob Dylan scholars -- Andrew Motion * The Spectator *
Heylin has long been Dylan's most accomplished biographer -- Neil Spencer * Observer *
Painstakingly detailed...informative and well organised -- Ludovic Hunter-Tilney * Financial Times *
