Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
That's just nonsense from start to finish, except where you surmise that I think his work is shallow, though I don't think it all is, not by a long chalk. To me, he's a pop singer who has written some good songs, mostly a very long time ago, a few jewels in a rather large crock of shite. The older I get the less I tend to see things in black and white. I'm sorry you feel so threatened. I'm just not keen to be constantly told that I "don't get it" by Dylan in-crowders who don't share my scepticism, you included, unfortunately. Just biting back ever so gently, that's all.
