He wrote and sang many memorable songs since then, but that one song about a wrongfully imprisoned African-American boxer, Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter, defined a generation and its attempts to be speak out and loudly.
Can you finish the last line of the song -
"The man the authorities came to blame, For somethin' that he never done, Put in a prison cell, but one time he could-a been, …."?
Out of the hundreds and hundreds of songs he wrote and performed since the 60s, he is often also remembered for The Times They Are a-Changin', Like a Rolling Stone, Mr Tamourbine Man, Knockin' on Heaven's Door, Blowin' In the Wind, Angelina and Mr Tambourine Man.
The prolific writer was last year awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition".
