Pete Townshend is one of the many artists who are contributing tracks to the upcoming tribute album, Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International.  Check out the video from RollingStone.com featuring the Pete working on the Dylan tune , “Corrina, Corrina,” as well discussing the lasting impact of Bob Dylan’s music.

Townshend actually revealed that when he began working on the early Who classic “My Generation,” he intended it to be “a Mose Allison-Bob Dylan hybrid of a talking folk song.”

He noted the universal quality of Dylan’s tunes and themes, pointing out, “You can take any song of his and find something in it that’s pertinent to today.”

In addition, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer praised the work of human-rights organization Amnesty International, which helped organize the tribute release.

Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan will be issued as a four-CD set and digital download on January 24.  Audio segments of nearly every song on the collection currently are streaming at Amnesty International USA’s Facebook page.
