Thread Name: Stolen melodies/Bob Dylan
Subject: RE: Stolen melodies/Bob Dylan
yes, but I do not have a stage name that is different from my own.
what a cheek nicking the name of Dylan Thomas,a psychologically crafty move to make us think he is a great poet,Zimmerman describes himself[in his book] as a Folk singer, but he has the mentality of a pop star,cultivating an Image,ruthlessly seeking stardom[and nicking other peoples lyrics][Paul Clayton].
He has written some very good songs,but he is a calculating person,who has been good at self promotion and is obsessed with himself and the pursuit of furthering his own career[while trying to maintain that other people offered him up as a guru]
Chronicles tells us a lot about Robert Zimmerman,he is a good song writer,but also a nincompoop and a Charlatan.
