Bob Dylan turned 59 today. Thanks for almost forty years of great music. Here's wishing many more.

Please let's not turn this into a Dylan is song thief, can't sing, it isn't folk thread.

He's an example to all of us who are vocally challenged not to let that stop them singing! I hope he hasn't read the reviews of his Stockholm concert in the British press. Mostly underwhelmed! OK he's no Pete Seeger or Sonny Terry but he has given us some songs within my range (you may not think that's a good thing either!) and has probably led a wider audience to discover folkish music, so I'll wish him a happy birthday!

I wish Bob Dylan well and I must say that I think he has been the single biggest influence on popular music in the latter part of the 20th century. There is hardly an artist in recent years who has not benefitted from his creative process. Happy Birthday Bob.....

Only 59 is it? He's still got time to show us what he can really do.

If he'd only have the nerve to say "I'm not singing the old songs, you can listen to the records.Here's the stuff I'm writing today."

Hippo Birdie to one of the best poets, and worst singers, I've ever had the pleasure of memorizing the works of... but I sang them à la Joan Baez -or anyone else's way-

until I (more or less) grew up. Now I can actually appreciate that some of his (especially early stuff almost NEEDS to be performed the way he does. I hesitate to say "sung" when referring to his vocalizations... but throughout, he has been one of the best lyricists, even if they weren't always HIS lyrics!

Happy birthday Bob!

To respond here to a thread I think I saw this or last week, it is, despite of whatever some could of his work, Bob dylan that lead me to folk music, (Guthrie, Seeger, John Hurt, all the others). I have many books about music, but I placed the book of Dylan's lyrics with my amrican literature.

Maybe he would like to lay across the Sugar Dog Luhhv Bed, altho it is not brass, and Hardiman the Fiddler is in there too.

Birthy Happday, then.

Shortly after his first album was released,
I heard it on an AM radio station out of Dallas,
Texas. They had a "folk" program at 2 a.m. central
time - middle of the night because most of their
listeners only wanted country. That's also where I
first heard Joan Baez and many others. I can't begin
to assess the impact his music had on the direction
my music took. The Weavers and Kingston Trio had
started me down that road, but his songs locked it
in. Ever so grateful. Happy birthday is in order.

Happy Birthday Bob... The first time I saw him was in a little hall in Springfield Mass.. He" opened " for Peter, Paul and Mary.. Little guy with hair all over and long dirty finger nails.. WHO IS THAT....my friends and I spent the next month searching for his music...He was such a profound influence on all of us.. regardless of whether he can sing or play the guitar. Love you Bob keep it up we need 59 more....

Happy Birthday Bob and Thanks for telling me that even a lonesome hobo deserves respect and can give good advise like

"stay free from petty jelousies and live by no man's code and hold your judgements to yourselves lest you wind up on this road"

Bob was the music poet and conscience of my generation. I think his music, wherever it came from, did much to make a whole lot of people a little more humane. Still a pretty honery bunch, but Bob gave us a desire to try to be a little better.

That's what I think..
