THE 411: Robert Zimmerman aka Bob Dylan has released 46 albums, which combined have sold over 110 million records around the world. He has written over 600 songs including: “Blowin’ In The Wind,” “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” “All Along The Watchtower, “ “Like A Rolling Stone,” “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” and “Tangled Up In Blue,” just to name a few. His live shows are known to be either so-so or unbelievable; let’s hope for the latter when he and his band pull into St. Louis.
