The year was 1959 and Bob Dylan had just graduated from Hibbing High School. In order for Bob to prove himself, he thought he had to go out on his own. He did just that by catching a bus across the North Dakota border. There, he got himself a job at the Red Apple Cafe bussing tables. It happens to be the only real job he ever had. In Fargo he met local musician, Bobby Vee. He tried out for his band The Shadows but did not make the cut. Only weeks beforehand, as an interesting side note, Dylan attended the last concert Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper would ever play in. Two days after that concert, they died in a plane crash en route to Fargo, North Dakota.
