Bob Dylan’s blockbuster deals

In 2020, it was reported that Bob Dylan sold his entire catalog of 600 songs, including hits like “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door”, to Universal Music in possibly the biggest music publishing deal in decades. As per the New York Times, the details of the deal were not disclosed, the deal was estimated to be worth more than $300m.



Later in January 2022, it was revealed Dylan had struck a separate deal with Sony in mid-2021 in which the music company acquired his master records for about $150 to $200 million as per Variety. The deal included all of his previous albums dating back to 1962 as well as the rights to future releases.

Back in 1979, Dylan bought a $105,000 property in Malibu's exclusive Point Dume. He then went on to acquire 11 more properties around it to create a sprawling multi-acre compound. While the main house features 6,000 square feet of space, the other three properties have a massive lagoon-style pool, half-court basketball court, and more.


Apart from his primary residence, Dylan and his brother David paid $2.9 million for a 25-acre Scottish property named Aultmore. It is a castle that features 18,000 square feet of space. The two listed this property for $3.9 million, earlier this year in July, per Celebrity Net Worth.

Dylan is also known to be an avid car collector and his collection includes classics like a 1962 Galaxie Country Estate, a 1953 Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn, and a 1959 Corvette C1.

Over the years, Bob Dylan was involved in several serious relationships. His first love affair was with Suze Rotolo, an artist and the daughter of American Communist Party radicals. The relationship reportedly was very special for Dylan as it influenced his music. He was then linked to folk singer Joan Baez, and the two often performed together. Later in 1965, Dylan married Sara Lownds and the couple had four children together. They divorced in 1977 and in 1986, Dylan married Carolyn Dennis, his backup singer with whom he had one daughter before their divorce in 1992.
