Thread Name: The Bob Dylan Mystique
Subject: RE: The Bob Dylan Mystique
by the time I heard Dylan, I had already heard a LOT of wonderful music...I listened, heard a couple that were quite moving.."It's All Right, Ma"..."Hattie Carroll"..a few that sure were different, and some that simply did not speak to me..*shrug*...but basically, I did not like his musical style...the chanting, semi-tuneless mode with mumbled words.He DID hit a nerve with some who were at a very impressionable age, and achieved 'cult' status..which to me means, that once he made it big, he could have made a living for years just singing the phone book....

(personally, there are many singers who I can't understand why they did NOT become rich & famous!)
