Thanks for this latest round of comments. If it were not for the music we would have no way of understanding anything. You criticise one of his concerts, and even then you suggest other opinions are available. I took no joy in trashing the concert, but it's my job to write my honest opinion. After a ferocious set by My Morning Jacket, and a solid but unexceptional one by Wilco, both of whom are joining him on this bizarrely titled "Americanarama Festival," Dylan and his five-piece band took the stage. He was everything he has always been just better. Its been downhill ever since.
Bob Dylan Is Rubbish
That does make it as acclaimed and beloved as any of his classic era albums. But I just can't quite manage to think of him as a "musician". There's no need to brag. I always think of him surrounded by great guitarists: But Hammond had a great record of discovering many brilliant artists Billie Holiday among them. Middle-aged new mothers will bring their babies to Bob Dylan. Thats what smoking 82 cigarettes a day will do to you.
Is Bob Dylan's music intentionally terrible for ironic purposes?
And that was just the s. I don't know if it's irony or not, but I do agree with you that his music sucks. Well, I feel better now. Even though you are much older than me 49 , the real fans and younger people enjoy his voice. As a matter of fact, at my show, he sang Tangled up in Blue, Simple twist of Fate, and Summer Days like his voice from the 70', then would go back to his scowl always catching the audience off guard to wonder where he was coming from and where was he going with the show.
My brother saw him back in the early 's and said he sucked. His songs, his voice, and his undeniably primitive guitar-playing were carried by his complete and authoritative commitment to the material. Though I am a big admirer of Bob's playing, I still think he'd have had plenty of success given his mastery of the songwriting process. Bound by her boredom, her pride to protect. I think his lyrics, even those most highly praised, tend to be awful. Yes, in two short decades, Dylan has gone from poking the establishment in the eye to suiting up for the latest plasticine trends.
