Thread Name: Happy 65th Bob Dylan
Subject: RE: Happy 65th Bob Dylan
Well, it's scary for us'ns who grew up with him to think of him as 65 ("retirement age"??). I was never, ever a fan of his voice...he wrote wonderfully, but couldn't sing worth a damn. "Lay, Lady Lay" I liked a lot, and "Like A Rolling Stone" and a few others. But usually, his best stuff was recorded by others (like "Blowing in the Wind").

Meanwhile, I don't like it A BIT that he is now 65!!! Makes me look/feel old, which I am in denial of currently. But, congrats nevertheless. Love him or hate him, he had a huge impact on music, performances, and attitudes. I should leave such a legacy! (not likely). Although, I DID have a "hit" no-one recorded around 1964 called "Blowin' In the Breeze." The Princeton Trio did it. Do you all have it? (BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA)
