Steve Jobs favorite Grateful Dead song was Uncle John’s Band; and his favorite band was Bob Dylan, followed by the Beatles and then the Stones, according to Isaacson’s Steve Jobs book.
Isaacson outlines the below songs/bands that were on Steve Jobs’s own personal iPod.
Here they are, roughly in order of which artist he had the most albums of:
All six volumes of Bob Dylan’s Bootleg Series.
15 other Bob Dylan albums from Dylan’s early career leading up to Oh Mercy from 1989 (though Dylan was Jobs’s favorite musical artist, he didn’t own any Bob Dylan albums later than 1989).
Jobs felt that Dylan peaked at Blood on the Tracks (1975).
Jobs’s favorite Dylan tune was “One Too Many Mornings.”
There we no solo albums from any of the Beatles.
I highly recommend Isaacson’s biography of Jobs. It’s a wealth of information on our time’s most prolific creator.Tweet 2 Comments
