GUEST,Sidewinder. 'Like a Rolling Stone' Changed the World (81* d) RE: 'Like a Rolling Stone' Changed the World 16 Aug 05

Little Hawk you seem to have read only the first part of my earlier posting and felt compelled to educate myself in the messiahanic talent of the great Mr Zimmerman.I have been an afficianado for around 35 years therefore I do speak with some experience and I have read several biographies, including the excellent Anthony Scaduto effort, and own approximately 25 of his albums and frequently play his songs on my ol' guitar and keyboard.Am I not afforded an opinion with these credentials? Why some people find it necessary to justify and belittle rather than engage in serious debate perplexes me.All I am saying is that "Rolling Stone is a one dimensional travalogue of lachrymose poetic symbolism that motors along with the same adroit sentimentality of anything produced by the Tin Pan Alley hacks of the day."Also,"it was as calculated a chart effort as any Motown single release in my opinion.""Blowing In The Wind" has far more credibility as a world changing composition in my view and shows far more focus.Or am I wrong about that also Little Hawk? The fact I do not Ass kiss Mr Z does not mean I don't admire and respect the man with all his failings ( he did record "Shot of Love" after all!) As for "Puff The Magic Dragon" if that changed Hull, Flamenco Ted, then I feel very sorry for you people as that explains why the City was named the worst in the UK recently.To take this argument on a decade I would profer "Imagine" as being a far more significant song than either "Stone" or Puff" for that matter.
