"Someone once called Bob Dylan the spokesman for his generation due to the social causes he supported with Joan Baez and the songs he wrote with social injustice and anti-war themes. Another poet, a spokesman for the Beat Generation of the 50s, Allen Ginsberg, was a big Dylan fan. They met and became good friends.
