GUEST,Guest - Lin Why did Dylan dis Phil Ochs? (95* d) RE: Why did Dylan dis Phil Ochs? 20 Jun 11


Both these guys were very young in the early 60's and with youth sometimes goes disrespect and big egos. True, musicians of any age can be mean spirited towards another singer or their competition but sometimes rapid fame at such an early age can bring out the worst in a young musician.

Also, I think even though Phil Ochs was a very good writer/musician, I don't think he had the same kind of charisma that Dylan had; there was just something about Dylan (besides his great ability as a songwriter) when he was very young, in his early/mid 20's that was very charismatic that Phil Ochs didn't seem to have.
