Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
When I saw the title of the thread, I immediately thought 'jealousy' as has been said above. I still reckon in his pomposity he objected to BD being RICH.
I never met Bob Dylan, but I did meet Ewan MacColl and I thought he was a miserable git quite frankly, his most redeeming quality was Peggy Seeger.
Bob Dylan's most redeeming feature is that everybody could do his songs better than he could - he probably cried all the way to the bank.
At the end of the day, it really doesn't matter does it?
