1966: Bob Dylan is injured when he crashes his motorcycle near his home in Woodstock, New York. Although his exact injuries were never fully disclosed and no ambulance was called, Dylan later said that he broke several vertebrae in his neck. The singer took the opportunity to drop out of the spotlight for a while, withdrawing from public and not touring for eight years. As Dylan later revealed in his autobiography "I had been in a motorcycle accident and I'd been hurt, but I recovered. Truth was that I wanted to get out of the rat race."
