#2

I saw him live once. Made me want to punch a baby. Every song sounded exactly the same. They go little intro solo, his jibberish for like 3 minuites, 8 minute long solo, another 3 mins of jibbereish then possibly another solo or blackout. then it comes back on with everyone in the same spot doing the same thing. FUN STUFF!!
#5
He is awesome, his new albums great too.

I can't believe he wrote that "so you've had a bad day..." song ...

He didnt really, but if you get the joke, cool.
#6
His lyrics are cool, but i dont like his sound. My dad went to see him, and apparently now hes all washed up and coked outta his mind. He said you almost couldnt understand a word he said. Oh well though, I got respect for him.
#7
Did you hear the pope tried to stop him from playing because of the amount of people that consider him either 'God' or a 'Rock Prophet'!!
I love him personally though!! Amazing Lyricist!

Best poet of the '60s ad '70s.

Inside the museums infinity goes up on trial,
Voices echo "this is what salvation must be like after a while."
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.

Great love him, although wheni saw him it was all seating and lacked atmosphere, but still the band are very tight players.
now extra flamey
#12
I dig him and respect him for what he's done, but I can only listen to so much before he irritates me.

And sometimes his lyrics are a bit.... off.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

WTF, everyone knows that he wrote that, as well as a ton of popular songs.
Great songwriter, hate his voice and his style of playing it though.

I've actually just submitted a bass tab for Mr Tamborine Man by him, i love the guy.

P.S I know it originally dosent have a bass, but us bassists gotta do something while the rest of the band preform it live + it sounds better.

i wrote a research paper on him and his influence on american popular music last year... although my dylan fandom has wanned since then. i think he was one of the most influential artists in music, mainly through lyrics as most would guess, and he is probebly one of my top 3 favorite artists of all time. does anyone else think modern times was somewhat overrated though? especially compared to Love and Theft and Time Out of Mind.i think the record was rated so highly because of his recent comeback, but i found the album to be kind of a bore with interesting ideas stretched out for much longer than they should have been. his backing band is solid though.

Well Bob Dylan is not the greatest poet from the 60's and 70's he's the best poet since Twain or Poe. That said, the man's backup band used to be "The Band" the hugely famous band. Well Um Dylan is my main man. But I disagree with all the praise he's getting for his new album. I listened to the whole thing almost in tears cause he sounds like he's about to die and its all like emo lyrics and Shit its sad. If you like Hendrix you have to like Dylan cause Hendrix listened to 61 revisited and decided he didn't need to get a singer for his band and that he could sing well enough.

totally agree, but the thing about dylan is that he really is an amazing songwriter, and to this day i dont think there has been a better break up song than dont think twice
#32
I like him. His voice is very distinct. You know it's him as soon as you hear the song.

While this statement is kinda racist and straightforward, it does have many FACTS to back it up lolz.

i know a dude who's obsessed with him. He learned harmonica and guitar cause of him and he knows like everything about him. I don't really think he's that great. The only songs I like are Hurricane and Like a Rolling Stone.. He has good lyrics but he's not a very good singer.

i finally completed my collection of dylan albums. all 45 commercial releases, DAMN it took forever. but yeah, i have an infinite amount of praise for the guy, he's done everything and still stayed himself through it all.

top 5 dylan albums (no order):
bob dylan
highway 61 revisited
blonde on blonde
time out of mind
blood on the tracks

that list changes constantly, but i'll always love 61 and TooM. highlands is my favorite track by him. 16 1/2 minutes of kickass imagery and wit. score.
