Dylan Forms Egyptian Records

So now he's a record exec too.

Bob Dylan, who is certainly one of rock's greatest

songwriters, now has his own record label. It's called Egyptian Records, and it

will be distributed and marketed by Columbia Records, the company that Dylan

has recorded for during his entire career. The debut album on the new label

will be The Songs of Jimmy Rodgers, a tribute album featuring recordings

of classic Rodgers' songs by Bono, Van Morrison, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp

and Dylan himself. The album is expected out before the end of the year.
