Thread Name: Dylan: Rock Legend, Maybe Folk Legend?
Subject: RE: Dylan: Rock Legend, Maybe Folk Legend?
I don't know why anyone can get too excited about this sort of thing. It's all subjective and it's use is as a starting point for a discussion among friends. I would expect most people of any generation to list what they know best. Why should that surprise anyone? In the event, I like most of the songs listed and I think that talkiing over a drum track is not the same as composing a song. It's what you would expect. I come from that generation.
At least Bob Dylan put a name to his songs - good or bad. I wish the poster who began this thread had done likewise.
