Thread Name: Bob Dylan Masters of war.
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan Masters of war.
Hey, Dylan's songs are steeped in the rich history of the blues... The blues is all about borrowing... I mean, lotta stuff out therer is fir the takin'... It ain't stealin'... It's just part of the game... Who cares??? I mean, really... It's not that Dylan wrote the entire song with borrowed stuff... Just inspired by soemthin' he'd read... Like that's all of us... That's where songs come from... I think that if we take Dylan's body of work and put it up against just about any poet past or present that it holds up well...

Jus MO, of course...
