Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
"Explain why I should love what the wrecking crew do "
It's this dishonest nastiness the nauses up these threads - as far as I am concerned it is a sign that those who behave like this have no confidence in their own argument.
No performer, no matter how good or highly praised, is above criticism, yet doses of unpleasantness such as this preclude ant honest and open discussion - I perfect example of folk fascism (if Dylan had been a folk singer) - Ivory Towerism at its very worst.
The fact than none of the sycophants here are not even prepared to give a nod to what Dylan has said about his own work says what needs to be said.
