Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
From the one time I met McColl and having known several who knew him. People were very reverent towards him, and I feel many scared of him. He really seemed to hate all 'American Folk' Though of course he married American Folkie Peggy Seeger. But he also upset many top artists i.e once told Ireland's greatest Singer Luke Kelly that he couldn't sing. McColl actually had a very below average voice! But most I've met saw him as a very big headed disagreeable but talented man
