Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
"Ok then Jim, what about his civil rights stance?"
Money-spinning lip service - no more
When he was asked to go on the Freedom Rides - his manager rfused on his behalf
He was finally embarrassed into taking part by a Hollywood actor/singer paying his fare
The protesters in the U.S. even Liberal America, mobilised big time against the Vietnam War,- not a peep out of Little Boy in Blue - even after the Kent State shooting.
Is nobody goiung to respond to what he said about his own music - is his own description as worthless as that?
"Is poetry found in song lyrics? "
Good lyrics are full of it - it's why bad lyrics are described as "doggerel".
Decf:
"verse or words that are badly written or expressed.
"the last stanza deteriorates into doggerel""
