Dylan Goes Electric, Newport Folk Festival - 52 Years Ago Today

Fifty-two years ago, July 25, 1965, Bob Dylan went electric at the Newport Folk Festival.

So, did people really boo him?

That's debatable.

Whatever actually happened more than half a century ago doesn't really matter.

Dylan's performance is accepted as a moment that changed the history of rock and roll.
