Since the 1960s, Joan Baez and Bob Dylan have been two of the most iconic and influential musicians in the world. They were not only musical partners, but also lovers and friends. So what happened to their relationship? It is said that Bob Dylan was the one who ended things between them. The reason is unknown, but it is speculated that it had something to do with Dylan going electric and Baez feeling left behind. Whatever the reason, their relationship ended abruptly and they have not spoken since.

This is a shame because they were such an important part of each other’s lives. They helped each other grow as artists and as people. They inspired each other to create some of the most timeless music of all time. Without Joan Baez, Bob Dylan may never have gone electric and may never have become the legend that he is today. And without Bob Dylan, Joan Baez may never have found her own voice and become the icon that she is today. Even though they don’t speak anymore, the influence that they had on each other is still evident in their music. And for that, we should be thankful.
Bob Dylan and Joan Baez worked together for decades, but they had a romance. After their relationship ended, the pair remained friends for several years. Dylan later apologized for his behavior during their relationship, but that apology has yet to be made public. He was deeply in regret about the break-up with her. Bob Dylan apologized to Joan Baez for the way he treated her after the couple split in 1984. While she attended the White House’s Civil Rights Concert in 2010, she did not speak with him. Baez wrote a song about their break-up after they broke up.
Despite this, the two remained close friends, singing together on stage on songs such as “Blowin’ in the Wind”, “The Water is Wide”, and “I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine”, all of which are included in Rolling Thunder Revue.
In a PBS documentary titled “Joan Baez: How Sweet the Sound,” Dylan finally apologized to her, saying: “I’m sorry.” It is with a heavy heart that I wish to inform you that our relationship has come to an end. The motivation, he explained, was to keep her from being swept up in the madness of his career.
