This Day In Rock. The Wallflowers
Born on December 9, 1969, in New York City, Jakob Luke Dylan is the son of Bob Dylan. The young Dylan chose to forge a career in music as well and formed the band The Wallflowers toward the end of the 1980s.
Changing the lineup after the lack of commercial success for the group's self-titled debut, Dylan scored major attention with ‘Bringing Down the Horse’, released in 1996. As part of the band Dylan won two Grammys for "One Headlight" including Best Rock Song.
The Wallflowers released their follow-up, ‘Breach’, the band's third album, in 2000; it was ultimately a quieter venture than its predecessor in terms of sales. ‘Red Letter Days’ followed in 2002, as did ‘Rebel, Sweetheart’ in 2005.
In 2008, Dylan put forth his first solo album ‘Seeing Things’, an acoustic, intimate affair and in 2010 released ‘Women + Country’.
After what Dylan described as a necessary break in working together, The Wallflowers reunited for their upbeat 2012 album ‘Glad All Over’, which also featured contributions from Mick Jones of The Clash. The band went on tour the following spring with Eric Clapton.
