Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
"I think it's sheer envy or else utter incomprehension that causes most people to slag Dylan. God knows, they've got quite a bit to be envious about! ;-) "

Really? I don't envy Dylan at all. I just find him boring and mediocre. His commercial success always seemed, to me, to be at odds with his unremarkable talents as a musician and a singer, and his rather average lyrics.

I think it's a case of "The Emperor's New Clothes"!

Spokesman for a generation? Yeh, right!
