* TheMovieBuff: He's a considerable cinephile, especially of the movies from TheFifties and is surprisingly articulate about [[http://cinemasparagus.blogspot.com/2012/01/bob-dylan-interview-with-john.html cinema about that time]]. His song "The Mighty Quinn" was based on the little-known Creator/NicholasRay film ''The Savage Innocents'' and in ''Chronicles'' he discusses the influences films by Creator/FedericoFellini and others had on him, as well as ''Film/TheGirlCantHelpIt'' (aka every rock musician's favorite film).

One of the most influential living songwriters in popular music, and an American cultural icon. Music critics refer to him by [[LastNameBasis last name alone]] (sometimes even just his first name will suffice), and references to his life and career seem to pop up everywhere. Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} is a great place to learn the particulars, so we'll stick to the tropetacular.

* CoverAlbum: A bunch. ''Music/GoodAsIBeenToYou'' and ''World Gone Wrong'' consist of solo acoustic performances of old folk standards. ''[[ExecutiveMeddling Dylan]]'' is an album of cover version out-takes. ''Music/ChristmasInTheHeart'' has him covering ChristmasSongs. His three most recent albums, ''Shadows In The Night'', ''Fallen Angels'' and ''Triplicate'', are covers of Tin Pan Alley standards (many of which associated with Music/FrankSinatra). Also, ''Music/BobDylanAlbum'', ''Music/SelfPortrait'' and ''Down In The Groove'' have more covers than original material.
