For six years, Jakob Dylan never mentioned the word "dad" in interviews.

When your father is pop icon Bob Dylan, it's hard to step out of his shadow.

"I was always aware that there was no story to talk about except my family, and that made me uncomfortable," the singer said in Sunday's Los Angeles Times.

However, after his band, the Wallflowers, won Grammys and sold 5 million albums, Dylan is coming to terms with his famous lineage.

"The truth is, I am very proud of my heritage," he said. "The only thing I ask is to be taken at face value."

He says it didn't seem like a "big deal" growing up in a famous family.
