60 Years, 600 Songs, $300 million – Nice One Bob!

Last week, Universal Music Publishing Group paid His Bobness $300 million for the 600 song copyrights from his back catalogue.


A bargain.


Dylan’s songs have been recorded more than 6,000 times by various artists, he’s sold 125 million records and won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016.


The biggest deal of its kind ever.  (But still a bargain!!)


A tribute to the Best Storyteller of our times (see last week’s Storytime post) and his unparalleled influence on our culture from the 60’s until today.
