Thread Name: Dylan: Rock Legend, Maybe Folk Legend?
Subject: RE: Dylan: Rock Legend, Maybe Folk Legend?
I'd have to say that as a Brit in the '70s, we didn't get Bob Dylan at all. We just wondered why a jew changed his name to that of a great Welsh poet and ripped off a large part of the British traditional folk music catalogue, changed some words and then claimed it as his own.
From friends in America, his personality is apparently best described as "an Asshole".
