As difficult as it sounds, the Voice of a Generation has never had number 1 on the Billboard charts under its own name. This time, in the increasingly fractured card world, his musical review of the JFK murder comes out on top in the Rock Digital Song Sales category, with 10,000 downloads.
Dylan managed successes which he wrote to reach the first place. His Blowing in the wind was taken to No. 1 in 1963 by Peter, Paul and Mary, and the Byrds scored first place with his Mr. Tambourine Man in 1965. As strange as it may seem, classics Like a rolling stone, Rainy Day Women # 12 & 35, and Things have changed were caught near the fence, all stopping at # 2.
Dylan remains a road workhorse, making more than 60 dates a year after years of making more than 100 a year on his endless tour.
