Thread Name: BS: Trying to be somebody else?
Subject: BS: Trying to be somebody else?
We were having a discussion over tonight about people trying to be other people. I think the first example we came up with was Melanie trying to sing like Joan Baez. Sadly my sister tried to Dylan as an example (trying to be Woody Guthrie in the early years…?), which derailed the topic of conversation onto yet another lengthy Dylan debate.

I think we missed an opportunity there, so I thought I'd give you the chance to develop the idea. In your opinion, do people spend lots of time being people other than they are? Or trying to be? Do you?
