Johnhenry'shammer Origins: He Was a Friend of Mine (34) RE: Origins: He Was a Friend of Mine 22 Dec 06

All of the "thieving Dylan" rumors really tick me off. None of them seem to have any real facts or evidence behind them. Like this one for example, Dylan never recorded "He Was a Friend of Mine" so it would be totally pointless for him to go through the trouble of paying off some guy that he stole the song from. I think that these Dylan rumors are esentially the same as the claim that Shakespeare didn't exist in that people find it hard to believe that two seemingly average people could write so well so stories are created to make these figures more believable. That's just my take on it.
