Born December 9, 1969 Parents – Bob Dylan and Sara Jakob Luke Dylan is the youngest of four children born to singer-songwriter Bob Dylan and ex-wife Sara Dylan.
Jakob is very private abouthis family to the extent that there are vitually no images of his children or wife available on the web.
The Wallflowers started out playing alongside other aspiring rockers at Canter’s delicatessen in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles.
The band signed to Virgin Records and made a self-titled album, the cover of which had a picture of all the band members’ feet, and drummer Peter Yanowitz’s dog.
The debut sold poorly however, and after they were released from Virgin Records, the band regrouped.
Burnett stated at the time: “As far as Jakob is concerned, I can’t imagine having larger footsteps to follow in.
But Jakob’s character is clearly defined and he handles success with grace, which also says a lot about Bob as a father.” Burnett went on to state that the success of Bringing Down the Horse had nothing to do with the family name: “I don’t think Jakob sold a single record because he is Bob’s son.
I think he sold a lot of records because “One Headlight” is a very good song.
They toured with 10,000 Maniacs, Toad The Wet Sprocket, Cracker, and The Spin Doctors, and gained and lost several band members along the way.
With the help of their manager Andrew Slater, the band secured a new major label record deal with Interscope Records.
