It is hard to believe, perhaps, but next week is Bob Dylan’s seventieth birthday. Three generations have now grown up with his unique voice as poet, songwriter and performer. Coinciding with Dylan’s milestone birthday is a new biography, by Baltimore-based Daniel Mark Epstein, called “The Ballad of Bob Dylan.”
