Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Thanks for that bit of common sense, LH. As someone who, over the years, has played everything from traditional tunes to blues, ragtime, '20s dance music, '50s rock'n roll, '60s funk & southern soul, jazz and more, that's exactly how some minds work. I've even made a modest income (at times) from doing this. It's a marvellous way of improving your musical knowledge and - though you might not think so - immersing yourself in a musical genre for two or three years at a time is intensely satisfying. Why, I've even played the odd Dylan song - many, many years ago.
