    a favorite aspect of Dylan is how obviously exquisite his songs become in the hands of a skilled interpreter... (often said but here's an example that was found off the beaten path)

    Love Dylan! I truly believe he’s one of the best poets this country ever produced. I think he’s amazing. Highway 61 is full of incredible songs (and Bloomfield tearing it up on guitar.)

    And for me, Blood On The Tracks is a perfect album.

    And the opening verse to Tangled Up In Blue is one of the most simple and evocative opening lines I’ve ever heard:

    “Early one morning,
    The sun was shining.
    I was lying in bed,
    Wondering if she had changed at all,
    if her hair was still red?”

    The older I get, and the farther I get from my past, the more that verse gets to me.

    Dylan is a genius, and I love the guy.

    some of my favorite lyrics of all time.

    Just because.

    Oh, God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"
    Abe say, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"
    God say, "No," Abe say, "What?"
    God say, "You can do what you want Abe, but
    The next time you see me comin', you better run"

    Well, Abe said, "Where do you want this killin' done?"
    God said, "Out on Highway 61

    I like his songs, and other people's performances of them.

    Huge fan I've seen him live a bunch of times. Fave was with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers backing him up in the 80s..

    From the 1960's into the 1970s's Dylan was incredible, I was besotted with the man's music for years...

    Another one that thinks he is a great poet/songwriter/performer....I think his studio albums number over 30....dang!!!

    This is my favorite tune by Mr. Dylan....and the movie w/Denzel was great too....

    And from his newer albums, I really love "Modern Times"

    Yeah Baby....

    Didn't he get an award for poetry?

    I saw him twice on the same tour about 20+ years ago.

    First show was at Miami University (Oxford, Ohio in their auditorium). I figured it would be a great place to see him- small intimate venue and all.

    But he SUCKED! Came tottering out onto the stage, looked confused, would start songs, and change into another (in all honesty he did reuse some of his structures). He'd mumble incoherently between songs, and stopped several songs right in the middle.

    He was swearing like a sailor, "No, GD, F it, ain't F'ing right, S, D it all to H" kind of stuff.

    His back up band was obviously trying really hard and getting frustrated with him not being all there.

    I almost sold off my tickets to the later show. That was at Hara Arena in Dayton, Ohio. Much larger venue, they have monster truck shows there (among other things).

    This time he was spot on. Came out energized, if he missed a lyric or flubbed a chord change I didn't notice it. And never a swear word at all.

    It was like seeing 2 different people performing.

    Bob Dylan doesn't exist, don't be fooled. He's just a figment of your imagination, there's no man by that name, just a flash of time that is rapidly changing.

    The question is, were you paying attention?

    There's seven people dead
    On a South Dakota farm
    Somewheres in the distance
    There's seven new people born....
