Bob Dylan’s entire music catalogue bought by Universal Music


Bob Dylan’s entire catalogue of songs, one of the great treasures in music history, has been acquired by Universal Music Publishing Group for an undisclosed sum. The catalogue includes such modern standards as Blowin’ In The Wind, The Times They Are a-Changin’, Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door and Like a Rolling Stone. That body of work may only be matched by the Beatles — whose songs were re-acquired by Paul McCartney in 2017 after changing hands several times — for its breadth and influence. Dylan topped the Rolling Stone list of the 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time in 2015 and the song Like A Rolling Stone was named by the magazine as the best ever written.
