Thread Name: Joni Mitchell -Dylan is 'a plagiarist'
Subject: RE: Joni Mitchell -Dylan is 'a plagiarist'
It's stupid, and I doubt real musicians play that game.

Unless Joni Mitchell does not count as a real musician, (whatever a real musician may be) the point seems to have been missed that it was a real musician who was saying these things and who was perfectly entitled to do so. This real musician also quite obviously felt that there is some form of competition involved.

But it is the music produced by these 'real musicans' and the 'not-so-real' musicians that matter far more than whoever may have been responsible for making it. We should perhaps simply enjoy this....

And no matter how talented they may be, in order to reach the vast level of fame we have given to the two real musicians involved here - we should make no mistake about the equally gigantic size of the two egos required. Whether this may be sad or not - it remains a fact of life.
