GUEST,Sidewinder punkfolkrocker, question? (37) RE: punkfolkrocker, question? 02 Feb 05

I always think Dylan is the archetypral folkie to the world at large.However, to anyone who researches Dylans' history you must encounter the incomperable Guthrie and Ramblin' Jack and Dave Van Ronk etc.But could any of them be classed as Punk ? I doubt it. I think if any musical style has an inherent claim on Punk it would have to be Rock and Roll and in particular the garage bands of the early sixties -The Kingsmen, MC5 etc.The Folk/Punk link is a very tenuous link at best.
