|jofield||Origin: Blowin' in the Wind (Bob Dylan) (37)||RE: Who wrote this famous Dylan song?||22 Jan 00|
Dave Van Ronk tells a story about Dylan coming over to show him a new song (Greenwich Village, early '60s). Dave saw it consisted of nothing but unanswered questions: 'How many roads must a man walk down..?', etc. He thought it was the stupidest song he had ever heard. He confesses to having no judgement as to a song's commercial potential.
