With wit, style, and an English accent, Michael Gray, author of The Bob Dylan Encyclopedia and Song & Dance Man III: The Art Of Bob Dylan — definitive studies of Dylan’s 50-year-plus body of work — traces how rock’n’roll arrived for the teenage Robert Zimmerman, how it disintegrated into shallow pop by the time Dylan was ready to launch his own career, and how it lured him back after his folksinging days.

Dr. Gray goes on to celebrate Dylan’s crucial role in modernizing rock music when he went electric, using great records and rare footage. His books may be immense but there’s nothing dry about Michael Gray’s live events, and he has been a sell-out on North American college campuses, the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame and all over Europe at arts centres, theatres and festivals.
