Thread Name: Dylan overrated?You've got to be kidding
Subject: RE: Dylan overrated?You've got to be kidding
I don't think you are missing anything Whistle Stop. I think the point that Rick Fielding was originally making was that Dylan is very much better than he is often given credit for. It has been left largely uncontested over the years when people have glibly commented "Can't sing, can't play". I wish I could always make such good musical decisions... Nobody is calling Dylan a guitar virtuoso - just a better player than he is usually given credit for.
