Thread Name: Joni Mitchell -Dylan is 'a plagiarist'
Subject: RE: Joni Mitchell -Dylan is 'a plagiarist'
I would say that Joni is/was the most original singer/songwriter of the rock era. The early precedents for Dylan are obvious: Guthrie being the most well known, but where did Joni come from? And, Joni's influence is enomous! For example, contemporary Taylor Swift owes so much to Joni's groundbreaking work - whether she knows it or not!
