    I was just listening to Bob Dylan and I was wondering how anyone could like this hack. Mumble singing a bunch of nonsense about a child’s balloon. I don’t know what anyone sees in this guy besides the fact he makes good whiskey... Just kidding he’s really good :)

    He was great till he went electric! ha ha just kidding.

    Bob falls into that category for me of 'I really like a handful of his songs, but the bulk don't pull me in'. Quite a few acts are like that for me, I like a phase they are going through or something, like Rush, but not so much the other stuff. But of course if you stay in something long enough, your musical sound evolves as does your personal tastes, so I think that's natural.

    Yes!

    great poet, good guitar player from a folk orientation, awful vocalist...and probably did more to destroy the harmonica as a musical instrument than anyone in the history of human kind...okay, maybe that's a bit extreme...

    since Attila the Hun.

    No, I just wanted to say he’s terrible but this isn’t a Bob Dylan bashing thread.

    Let's just get this out of the way. The following people/groups are all terrible and overrated and if you like them you're a bad person:

    Eric Clapton
    The Beatles
    Rolling Stones
    Led Zeppelin
    Jimi Hendrix
    Bb king
    Bob Dylan
    Jeff beck
    Robin trower
    Fleetwood Mac
    Elvis Presley
    Grateful Dead
    U2
    The police
    Yes
    Rush
    Metallica

    I think that covers it.

    Big time fan as of a few years ago after hearing Ballad Of A Thin Man and realizing what a great songwriter he is. So I bought 4 of his albums and some single mp3’s

    Bob Dylan is great. Especially as a writer. There is some fantastic instrumentation going on in some of his albums, too.

    Desolation Row, Gates of Eden, and Ballad of a Thin Man are some of my favorite songs to play on guitar--though I'll usually grab my classical rather than an electric if that's what I'm playing. And while my voice isn't anything like Dylan's, I can sing his stuff without straining--which is not the case with a whole lot of other artists.
