I looked into covering a Dylan song about 15 years ago when I was first starting out. I couldn't believe how long the list of artists were that covered his songs... and I'm not even talking about his most famous or commonly popular work. Even obscure tunes that most people do not really know, still had pages of artists covering those songs. If you had told me he sold his catalogue for a billion dollars I would believe it. There is just so much content there. Just constant radio, TV and movie requests. There are so many songs out there that Dylan wrote or co-wrote that people are oblivious that he had anything to do with it. Couple examples... Garth Brooks "To Make You Feel My Love" or "Wagon Wheel" (Old Crowe Medicine Show)... there are way more than that. It's pretty common for a lot of new artists to dig through his material looking for something to help get them going. Bob still writes, too. He still puts out new albums of music.
