Dylan goes electric: (00:00:10)
Fifty years ago this month, Bob Dylan made his third appearance at the legendary Newport Folk Festival with close to 100,000 die-hard folk fans there to cheer him on. But when the 24-year-old singer took to the stage and ripped into an electric version of "Maggie's Farm", well according to legend he was booed and called a sellout. Musicologist Rob Bowman talks about the significance of that iconic Dylan performance back in 1965 and how it changed the trajectory of pop music.
