Bob Dylan News from Rolling Stone Magazine

I was reading the October 27th issue of Rolling Stone and I found out that in early 2012 there will be an album of Dylan  covers titled Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 years of Amnesty International.  All proceeds will benefit that human rights group.

There was a long article about the late Steve Jobs saying he was a big Dylan fan.  The article states that he spent much time rewriting Dylan lyrics in his own words.   He used Dylan songs to make sense of his world.  He actually hung a picture of Dylan over his bed when he lived with girlfriend Chrisann Brennan.  Perhaps Steve Jobs was Dylan's most famous fan.
