Do we have any Dylan fans here? I'm a huge Dylan fan. My fav song is a tie between Knockin' on Heavens Door and Like A Rolling Stone.

Whoever DOESN'T like the Dyls should GET THE EFF OUT.

I'm getting Blonde On Blonde for my birthday this year(along with a brand new RECORD PLAYER!). And obviously everyone has to love "Like A Rolling Stone". I always find myself rocking out to that late at night while I'm on musical rampages on YouTube. I always wake up my mother with my "HOW DOES IT FEEEEEEEEL".

Lately I've become infatuated with his softie stuff like "Emotionally Yours". I can't even… a-hard-days-night-ringo-11 What a beautiful, beautiful man.

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

 Everyone has to love mr. dyl picylan.

 

Oh, and I heard my friend say I'm a better writer than Dylan (Which is totally untrue, I can't be as good as Dylan.)

Oh, I luvvv the first dozen-plus years of Zimmy's career! But unfortunately I've not given his latter career the attention it probably deserves, because I really don't like the way his voice started to deteriorate in the mid-80s or so. And I feel guilty about that because I'm assured I've missed some real masterpieces in the last decade or so; and also because I used to always defend the guy when ignorant people put him down, saying "He can't sing!" I mean, if those people could be so wrong about his 1960s-70s voice (which I loved), then I can easily be wrong about his '80s-and-beyond voice, which I don't love…or have never investigated enough to learn to love.

I love Blonde on Blonde, Blood on the Tracks, Highway 61 Revisited, Time out of Time… A great musician, no doubt.

 

Play f*cking loud!

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

I'm with you – since I have always been a fan, it just made me feel bad for the guy. I saw his concert in Arizona in '02. By then, his pipes were so bad, it took at least 1/3 of the way through each song before being able to recognize which one it was.

At one point while the band was playing, he appeared to be singing a song that my buddy and I just could not recognize. Turns out he wasn't singing - he was talking, introducing the band. That's how bad it was. 

If I had to pick a favorite song by him, I'd have to go with his rendition of I Shall be Released from The Last Waltz. Even our boy Ringo plays drums on it. Let this one melt into your ears…

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I'm a big fan of Bob Dylan's.  He was the first to admit that he couldn't sing, but it didn't really matter.  His songwriting was so brilliant, it overcame his shortcomings as a vocalist.  The guy simply rewrote the rule book on what popular music is.  And of course, he was HUGELY influential to the Beatles  (of course, they were a huge influence on him, too…he thought their sound was galvanizing and outrageous and was inspired by them to turn his back on his folk audience and go electric in 1965).

Possibly my top three songs of all time are (in order) "A Day In The Life", "Like a Rolling Stone", and Jimi Hendrix's cover of Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower."  The lyrical power and depth is stunning.

Some other tours-de-force from Bob are:  "Tangled Up in Blue", "Positively 4th Street", "Desolation Row", "The Times They Are a-Changin'", "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall", and "Visions of Johanna." 

 

All along the watchtower

Princes kept the view

While all the ladies came and went

Barefoot servants too.

from "All Along the Watchtower"

 

The ghost of electricity howls in the bones of her face

from "Visions of Johanna"

 

She was married when we first met

Soon to be divorced

I helped her out of a bad situation

But I used a little too much force.

His best song and arguably the best song ever made (It was #1 on RS's top 500 songs). Listen to it.

I was eight years old when this was released.  I can still remember riding in the back seat of my parents' car when "Like a Rolling Stone" came on the tinny little AM radio.  I leaned all the way up to the front (this was in the days when most cars didn't even have seat belts), thinking, "Wow!  What IS this?"  Here was this angry torrent of words spilling out in a sneer of a voice.  I had never heard anything like it but I could recognize a game-changer even at eight. 

The Beatles were listening too.

It's still an untouchable song.

Did radio stations actually play the full six minutes? (I know the single had to split it into two parts, but maybe promotional copies were intact…)

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967
