Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
I am not saying that McColl didn't write a few good songs, but he is not in the same class as Dylan at all. Whatever one thinks of Dylan as a songwriter, he was a huge influence in a way that changed a lot about popular and folk music. In fact there are many writers who surpass McColl both in terms of music and influence. Just my thoughts on it.
