Can't argue with any of that.

One thing i've always thought. So many people say he's got a terrible voice. Which he has, sort of. But when he sings 'Blowin' In The Wind' and many others he sings them better than anyone else.

Strange but true.

Ive been singing that since 1962.
Vocaliing is not always about timbre nor tone nor technical proficiency.Dylan break all the rules.Same with Neil Young .These are not trained singers in any way .

My mother used to hammer me for breathing within a note.

We used to listen to Dylan as teenagers in a front room in Killay wondering what Bob was talking about.

Sub Blues hit me for 6. I still can't undertand how anyone could have come up with this.

Being a vocalist himself ,our Guvna would tell you quality of voice isn't important.

Just how long a shadow do you think a Turkish Woody Guthrie impersonator is capable of casting?

It ceases to amaze me that despite repeated warnings over abusive language or words disguised to have the same effect. The same usual suspects are still getting away with it without anything being done.

Pretty gash according to everyone I know who has seen him live.

Like Leonard Cohen. One of those people better at writing songs for other people than performing them himself.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

You have done well.

Although it was written in 1962 it wasn't recorded and released until 1963.

I appreciate his lyricism but I genuinely can't stand to listen to him. Ropey harmonica player, intolerable voice and the usual folk chord progressions.

I have tinnitus and I consider it slightly more bearable than listening to the seemingly interminable verses of Mr Tambourine Man.

Same applies for Neil Young's voice. There's a limit, and his cawing, gutless voice is too much to handle. Sorry to be negative but I've participated ain't I?

Give me John Martyn's velvet-smooth, insouciant vocals coupled with his quality guitar work any day. Now there's a player and a singer.

Billy Bragg is the pound shop Guthrie. Dylan a great writer but shot as a performer by the mid 70s. Remember my mother buying ‘Live at Budokan’ . Don’t think it ever made it past side 1. That’s not to decry the change he drove and a folk and electric performer or great records like Highway 61 …

The usual replies.Bad singer etc,Neil Young too. Music is subjective .It's why some liked Queen whilst others saw them as pretentious middle class people. Bowie?,idolised by many but left others cold.

My point was and is the song they have written,performed countless times;there's a reason for that.People can't see it then that is for them.

Ive seen great praise over the years for the likes of Iron Maiden,Motorhead -to me horrendous .

As for Kent,nobody likes them posh people gary,me ol former mate.

I like Neil Young. Went to see him in Liverpool Arena a few years back with Crazy Horse. People were moaning. There were expecting ‘Harvest’ and got the full rock treatment. I though it was great myself. Not so keen on Dylan as a performer but respect his work and unsurpassed as a writer.

When Ian Macnabb opened for him,he was ok back stage .Spiky,tricky and awkward .

One take he told us was when he was playing "Rocking in the Free World" at a huge gig when he was playing very loud but in a different key to Crazy House. He forgot he changed the key but carried on.

I feel the majority on here have no idea as to the impact of Dylan and Young.The fact they mention voices is key.Ever heard a worse voice than Tom Waits? Me neither.

Love and Mercy was recorded when he voice was "shot" but if one listens to it,one's life passes before the eyes.

Johnny Cash last album is the most affecting you'd ever hear especially "Hurt" ,recorded in pain .

Quality of voice does not necessarily make a great artist. That needs more.

My ol mum was a classically trained mezzo and could be heard above a congregation at Church/Chapels easily but he has no "personality" as such when interpreting songs.

Finally ,not sure the likes of Ed Sheeran ,Rag n Bone man, and their like will leave the same legacy .

I might start a thread on singer songwriters but very busy here

Tom Waits' voice on The Old Grey Whistle Test, when he sang Waltzing Matilda, is exceptional. He sounds like an alcohol-soaked Disney villain and it's wonderful.

The issue is how much emphasis one puts on music as a carrier for a message, regardless of innate talent. In my opinion, having an eloquent vocabulary is not enough to ignore other shortcomings. Dylan is not nice to listen to, nor is Young.
Most on here do appreciate Dylan's pen; the fact he won the Nobel Literature Prize says all about his talents and nothing about his actual music.
Yes music can be anything, and I listen to Chopin or Erik Satie one day, and doom metal the next. The common theme is that despite these disparate genres, and all in between, they actually sound good.

You 're a good poster,a great read. Waits to me sounds horrific. Listen to Bad as Me and then how Sir Tom does it. It proves my point.

Have to admit Neil Young is a very personal subject for my Mrs who simply played his early tuff,in particularly, round the clock almost.

If we all thought the same,I d hate to be alive.

And,just for all my readers,this chap had his own show on prime time telly and women loved him.

Absolutely loved Roussos on Aphrodite's Child's 666 album. There's something eerie and beguiling about his voice; such a distinctive, tight vibrato. His flits and slides are also so hard to replicate.
