The first person to sing the song, Forever Young, was Bob Dylan. Another famous person to perform the song was Rod Stewart.

Yes. The Rod Stewart version is slightly different, though mostly similar in lyric and melody, and Bob Dylan was given a share of the royalties from this song.

It is, apparently, an unconscious reworking of Bob Dylan's song of the same name.

the song forever young by rob Stewart was released in 1972 Sorry to correct the above answer, but Rod Stewart recorded this in 1988 for the album OUT OF

Elton John did not sing Forever Young, nor did he write it. Rod Stewart was responsible for the creation and the recording of Forever Young in 1988.

Forever Young - Bob Dylan & Will I Am

The song Forever Young was first released by Bob Dylan in 1974 along with his vinyl record "Planet Waves". He released a live version of the song in 1979 in an album called "Bob Dylan at Budokan".

FOREVER YOUNG was written by Rod Stewart, Jim Cregan and Kevin Savigar, but was really a rewrite of the original Who_wrote_the_song_forever_youngof the same name by Bob Dylan.Rod had written the lyrics as a reference to his children growing up too fast, something he had missed with all the touring at that time, but had unconsciously drawn on the Bob Dylan song when he wrote it.

The main difference between Bob Dylan and Rod Stewart's Forever Young is the fact that it was written by Bob Dylan, and it is a personal story about his son Jakob. Stewart's version is also more upbeat, and less melancholy sounding.

Forever Young by Bob Dylan and Seasons of Wither by Aerosmith.

a band from Germany called Alphaville. Bob Dylan in 1974.

The song is called: "Forever Young" written by Bob Dylan.

Bob DylanOriginal lyrics by Diane Whitlow. Actually Bob's Forever Young was a whole different songs. They had a court meeting and the court ruled there weren't enough similarities. Jim Cregan and Rod wrote the song.My name is Jim Cregan and the song was developed in the studio from a melody idea that I had. Kevin Savigar (keyboards) helped finish the music and Rod Stewart wrote the lyric. Later we found Rod had unwittingly used two lines of a Bob Dylan lyric and ended up giving Dylan a chunk of the song and a credit. So accidentally I can now say I wrote a hit song with Bob.... :)----THAT IS WRONG. The song WAS plagiarized, Rod Stewart ADMITTED that he accidentally and subconsciously plagiarized the song (it happens, i have written full songs and realized after-the-fact that I had subconsciously stolen a hook or verse from something I'd heard before)ROD HAPPILY GAVE BOB HALF OF THE MONEY HE EARNED FROM THE SONG.ROD ISN'T A THIEF, HE IS A TOTALLY AWESOME DUDE THAT OWNED UP TO HIS MISTAKE :)

Most likely (and note this may not be accurate although it probably is), he is the son of Jim Cregan - a member of Stewart's band at the time who co-wrote numerous songs with Stewart and played guitar in the band.

He originally recorded the song for his 1988album, Out of Order.

Forever Young feat It's a new take on a Dylan classic. Check it out on his album "Biograph" Lyrics to Forever Young : May God bless and keep you always, May your wishes all come true, May you always do for others And let others do for you. May you build a ladder to the stars And climb on every rung, May you stay forever young, Forever young, forever young, May you stay forever young. May you grow up to be righteous, May you grow up to be true, May you always know the truth And see the lights surrounding you. May you always be courageous, Stand upright and be strong, May you stay forever young, Forever young, forever young, May you stay forever young. May your hands always be busy, May your feet always be swift, May you have a strong foundation When the winds of changes shift. May your heart always be joyful, May your song always be sung, May you stay forever young, Forever young, forever young, May you stay forever young.
