Bob Dylan Net Worth: Bob Dylan is an American singer, songwriter, artist and writer who has a net worth of $180 million. Robert Allen Zimmerman (aka Bob Dylan) was born May 24, 1941 in Duluth, Minnesota. Much of his most acclaimed work was during the '60s, though his works have spanned 5 decades. A number of Dylan's early songs such as Blowin' in the Wind and The Times They Are a-Changin' became anthems for the U.S. civil rights and anti-war movements. After The New York Times gave him a positive review for one of his performances in 1961, Dylan signed a recording contract with Columbia Records. Dylan's connection to the '60s protest movements became more apparent in 1963 with Dylan's relationship with Joan Baez, an established singer within the movement. Dylan continued to try new styles and in 1965 he released Bringing It All Back Home, a half-acoustic, half-electric style which showcased a new side of Dylan, though his new styles were not always supported by his old followers, and in 1965, at the Newport Folk Festival, he was booed while on stage. This did not deter Dylan. Over the next three decades, he continued to reinvent himself, producing some of his most innovative work. Dylan also branched out into film and in 1973 appeared in Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. In 1979, Dylan declared himself a born-again Christian, which inspired the song Slow Train. This song won Dylan his first Grammy Award. In 1989, Bob Dylan was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and in 1997 he became the first rock star ever to receive Kennedy Center Honors. He has since written and performed many songs, including soundtracks for films. Dylan has been described as one of the most influential figures of the 20th century, musically and culturally. He was included in the Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century where he was called "master poet, caustic social critic and intrepid, guiding spirit of the counterculture generation." In 2008, The Pulitzer Prize jury awarded Bob Dylan a special citation for "his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power."
