Wiki

Jakob Luke Dylan (born December 9, 1969 in New York City) is the lead singer and songwriter of the rock band The Wallflowers and is a son of legendary folk singer Bob Dylan. He has also recorded two solo albums.

Dylan is the youngest of four children born to singer-songwriter Bob Dylan and ex-wife Sara Dylan. He married his childhood sweetheart, Nicole Paige Denny (now former actress Paige Dylan), in a ceremony at Sara Dylan's house in 1992. Dylan and his family reside in Los Angeles; they have four sons. Jakob is very private about his personal life and has never revealed his childrens' names in an interview or released pictures of them.

The Wallflowers started out playing alongside other aspiring rockers at Canter's delicatessen in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles in 1989. 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.
