Thread Name: Origin: Blowin' in the Wind (Bob Dylan)
Subject: RE: Who wrote this famous Dylan song?
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.
