Rage Against the Machine’s famous guitarist, Tom Morello, shared a photo of the legendary musician Bob Dylan on his official Instagram account to celebrate Dylan’s 79th birthday.

Bob Dylan is an influential figure of his era with his music, poetry, and his views. Throughout his life, he has won many awards including an Oscar Award for the best original song with ‘Things Have Changed’ in the movie ‘Wonder Boys’, and too many Grammy Awards to count. He was also awarded Nobel Prize in Literature in 2016 for creating a poetic expression in American songs.

Tom Morello shared one of the most iconic photos of Bob Dylan in black and white and celebrated his birthday saying:

“Happy 79th birthday to our poet, @bobdylan.” 

He also added in lyrics from a Bob Dylan song ‘Shelter from the Storm’ which was a track on Dylan’s ‘Blood on the Tracks’ album that was released in 1975:

“Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
When blackness was a virtue the road was full of mud
I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form
Come in, she said
I’ll give ya shelter from the storm”

Tom Morello and Bob Dylan fans were loving the post he shared. The post received 20K likes and one of the users who pushed the like button was The Pretty Reckless’ frontwoman, Taylor Momsen.
