Danny, you're talking rubbish. If "Brits" didn't get Dylan, how come his fans nearly sunk the Isle of Wight in 1969, and sold out Blackbushe in 1978 (one of the biggest paying gigs of all time) and, finally, how come "Brits" have bought millions of his albums and are counted by Bob himself as being among his most loyal fans? I forgot, how come 100,000 paid to see him at Wembley in 1984, at a time when his career was not exactly at its peak? How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?

Sam Cooke felt that HE (Sam) should have written "Blowin in the Wind", which he recorded, so he sat down and wrote "A Change is Gonna Come". That's influence.
