Thread Name: Bob Dylan Masters of war.
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan Masters of war.
The Dylan/Petty version in the clip absolutely sucks!!! "Masters of War" ain't this upbeat song... It's a very serious song about some very serious shit... Ther's only one way to do it and that is the way that Dylan did it originally...
BTW, this is one hard song to squeeze into a set without ruining yer set... And the worst part about it is the better you do the song the more it brings yer set down... I mean, if yer audience consists of alot of folks who wnat serious downbeat dirges then let 'er rip... I save songs like this for the right situation which doesn't presnt itself too often... Gotta be respectfull and carefull about these kinds of songs if yer on stage...
