Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Was Dylan a one-man band? Of course not, from the start he had management (Hammond and Grossman) and the marketing force (Rock Machine) of Columbia Records (CBS now Sony) behind him.
He still has and touring worldwide at 70.
His relentless output culminated in creating the brilliant BD and The Band.
The Band were brilliant in their own right - 'The Last Waltz' is one of my favourite movies (clips on Youtube). A DVD I recommend.
If the answer to this thread was ever true McColl's dislike was decided in a fleeting moment in time compared to the 50 year career of billionaire Bob Dylan.
