|Bob Dylan...Page 6 of 8 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)|
|dylan was the poet of the mass's during his time. but i think he's a little dated now. this doesn't detract from any of his music, it is just less delicate. |
have you read when we where cool, its a wikid book about alan ginsberg and the beat nicks.
worth a look.

|I have always loved Dylans Music He may not have the greatist vocals but he always had great tunes Best show I saw was when he toured with The Greatful Dead Awesome Show|

|Love Dylan's writing and the music... but the sound of his voice is what keeps me from being more than the occasional listener... which is strange... because I find I can listen to Tom Waits...|
I think a lot of people don't realize how many Dylan songs that other artists have covered... Someone once argued with me for over an hour that Jimmy wrote "All Along the Watchtower" not Dylan
His version of the folk classic (think pre Animals version) House of the Rising Sun is interesting...
And what's with his creepy new(er) look by the way?? it is kind of like a cross between Vincent Price and Lyle Lovett

|i don't understand why people critisize his voice so much. it's so raw and emotionally charged. it's very pure. thats whats so amazing about him to me. and i think its even better now that he's older. you can almost feel the things he's felt through his voice. and combined with that incredible poetry...amazing.|

|Dylan is an incredible artist. My favorite stuff by him is the Billy The Kid stuff. I must admit though, that I was a bit disappointed in him when he went into his religious kick. I had thought him to be way too intellectual to fall into that nonsense.|

|I can't see why people bash Bob Dylan. I like his old stuff (from before I was born) and his new stuff (Modern Times)|

I saw him on the "Slow Train Running" tour in a small concert hall , called the St. Denis Theater here. Maybe 2,500 seats maximum.
After seeing him on the "Rolling Thunder" tour, I was blown away. As I've said, that was perhaps the best live show I've ever seen anyone do.
At the St. Denis the curtains opened up to show the gospel choir that was backing him up. When they started to sing, I finally "got" gospel music. Talk about "testifying" ! After they finished, Dylan and his band opened up the second half. It was an amazing cross breeding of rock and roll , and gospel. I was not totally sold on "Slow Train" as an album, but I was after that show.
Dylan, above all , is (and always will be) an enigma. It's no accident that this latest bio film features so many different actors "playing' him. That's essentially Dylan's persona. He's a man holding up many masks to use and hide behind. He's been that way since day one. Dylan (the artist) plays Dylan (the character) like he does his guitar or harmonica.
The only constant thing in Dylan's life is change.

|"Idiot Wind" reminds me of so many people these days. |
Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your mouth,
Blowing down the backroads headin' south.
Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth,
You're an idiot, babe.
It's a wonder that you still know how to breathe

|The G'n'R version is pretty good......|
My favorite concert of all time was when I went to see Dylan and the Raconteours. Two of my all-time favorites. Bob Dylan and Jack White..

|I'm a big Dylan fan. Right now I'm listening to "Blood on the Tracks" over and over again (as well as "Nashville Skyline"). |

|recently bought the modern times album. |
Thunder on the Mountain is one of the best Dylan tunes ever.

|Its very hard to describe Bob Dylan's impact on popular music. If you're willing to search for it, a good place to start would be a book by Robert Shelton called 'No Direction Home.' On very simple terms you have to realize that before Dylan pop songs (meaning songs from the youth culture that created such an uproar since the early 50's) had been wonderful at times but had lacked serious subject matter. And here was Dylan singing about King Lear and god know's what else lol. The Beatles subject matter became much more...interesting...as a result of Dylan's music ( and possibly Bob giving John that Joint lol)....country music lyrics and melodies became much more intimate, populist and personal after Dylan went there to record in the mid-sixties. Its really an interesting body of work that Bob Dylan has produced. The last count I heard had around 2000 books about him, he has been nominated for a Nobel prize for several years running....very interesting, even at this worst.|

|I always preferred cover versions to his own versions. The Byrds were especially good at them. The Hendrix version of "All Along the Watchtower" is also fantastic.|

|I've heard the latest on Dylan is that Volume 8 of his Bootleg series will be coming out this fall and will include unreleased material from 1989's "Oh Mercy" through 1997 "Time Out Of Mind." |

|It's true that the Beatles' were influenced by Dylan, but Dylan was also greatly influenced by the Beatles' sound. Dylan would have still been a folk singer if it hadn't been for the British invasion The two complemented each other, making Dylan's music more melodic and with a rock and roll sound and the Beatles' music more lyrically interesting.|

|Yeah, Bob Dylan is second to none! I just recently rediscovered him. I must have about 200 of his songs now. I especially liked what he did between 1974 and 1990 or so, but even his newer stuff is awsome. Thank god for Youtube! I can watch some of those perfomances I missed.|

I must admit though, that I was a bit disappointed in him when he went into his religious kick. I had thought him to be way too intellectual to fall into that nonsense.
I agree with you there, but some of his greatest music came from that time period. He seems to be over that religious stuff now and more of a maverick type spirituality.

|To me, especially for someone whose just experienced a break-up, "Blood On The Tracks" is the perfect record to put on and listen to. I'm thinking of making a little wooden case with a glass front, putting that CD in it, and then attaching a little hammer with a long chain. |
In case of break-up, break glass.

|I've seen him in concert twice. Once in the late seventies, and again just a couple of years ago. He did a double with Willie Nelson the second time, and it was a great show. I really like Tangled Up in Blues, Knockin' on Heaven's Door, and just about everything he does or has written. He's a true artist.|

|Self Portrait...has been in my player as of late. Very interesting listening, no doubt!|
