Like A Rolling Stone


Bob Dylan rode a Triumph on the leafy roads surrounding his home in Woodstock, New York. This charming young folk singer, a man of unpredictable habits, was a charismatic figure on his red-and-silver '64 Tiger 100. During the two years he owned his Tiger, Dylan had recorded four albums; Another Side of Bob Dylan, Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde on Blonde, all of which went gold, platinum, or double-platinum. 

Above is the cover of his 1965 album, Highway 61 Revisited; peeking out from his psychedelic blue satin shirt is a Triumph tee, which surely boosted sales amongst the young and hip. An early example of 'product placement'.
