4/6 Stuart Maconie profiles six undisputed heavies of pop and rock with the use of original reviews and features by some of the heavies of music journalism.

Born Robert Allen Zimmerman, the immeasurably influential singer/songwriter took his stage name from poet Dylan Thomas. His move from the midwest to New York City in late 1960 resulted in a folk-rock revolution that transformed the lyrical possibilities of popular music. Featuring the critical writings of Richard Williams, Sean O'Hagan and Al Aronowitz.
