Happy birthday, Bob Dylan. The singer-songwriter turns 73 today. Dylan is as busy as ever, having just teased his cover of Frank Sinatra’s 1945 hit “Full Moon and Empty Arms” in anticipation of a new album due out later this year.

The craggy-voiced icon is known to be a straight-faced, serious performer, rarely smiling on stage or in photos — the perfect accompaniment for his somber lyrics and political anthems. “It’s hard not to feel that the sense of Dylan’s music as so very deep and meaningful would be so persuasive if it didn’t issue from the pouting sloucher on the record sleeves,” ponderedThe Guardian’s Lindesay Irvine.

Dylan’s stern facade has occasionally cracked to reveal a lighthearted artist who indulges in random headstands, goofy antics, and toothy grins. Check out the photo evidence in celebration of the counterculture poet’s birthday.
