According to his iPod selection (it was dissected in his new biography, by Walter Isaacson) and several quotes, Steve Jobs was not that interested in today’s musical stylings. He much preferred 60’s and 70’s music.
Bob Dylan was by far his favorite musician (his iPod contained 21 Dylan albums) who he also looked up to, someone he may have learned “constant innovation” from.
So if innovation is what kept Apple alive through the years, can we attribute the company’s success to Bob Dylan? No, not completely. But it’s still intriguing.
