Bob Dylan is a performing atist and almost by definition a self promoter. He has been extremely sucessful for 45 years getting himself into the spotlight And oh by the way selling tons of albums first and now CD's. First by pitting Boomers against their parents and now by pitting the children of Boomers against their parents. Last time I looked his new CD was "Top of the Charts"

Old Bobby D. is about as crazy and irrelevant as a fox. He has always known which buttons to push.

The problem is that the dork is bitching that the new, digital, superior recording medium that albums are recorded on, the compact disc, is somehow ruining music by providing higher quality sound. All of you people complaining about genres are missing the point. He's complaining literally because he has to record on a CD instead of vinyl.

Jen: Thanks for mentioning the Wallflowers. You beat me to it.

I considered that to genre. Is it because it wasn't as simple and in cost to make records as it is to make cd's now? So if anybody decided to release a record they had to work on it in detail to improve the sounds to make their release worthwhile. Wouldn't it be fair to say "he had it hard and the new generation has it easy"?

Oh, I don't disagree. Unfortunately, that doesn't make him any less of a jerk. wink.gif

Bob Dylan is still alive? Whoa, I thought he died back in the late 70s or early 80s.

There are too many examples to list them all but I will specifically mention "All along the watchtower" by Jimi Hendrix and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" by just about anyone else as two prime examples of how others needed to summon genius to turn those two stinkers into what are generally regarded as great songs.


except Guns n'Roses... their cover of knocking on heavens door was utterly abismal.
those guys can't cover crap...

secondly, Bob Dylans worst crime was letting his son cover Bowie... he totally drained the life out of 'heros' on the Godzilla soundtrack i believe. an album famous for screwing songs... like Puff Daddy doing kashmir by led zeplin... awful, awful stuff.

I ran into this page searching for more information about the life of the greatest artist alive today, Bob Dylan. Apparently Mr. Elf decided to devote his time to belittling a man who has devoted his life to influencing souls to get their lives on the right track. Bob Dylan is a messenger from God. I know what you're thinking. Bob Dylan is old, he plays plain guitar, he's boring, he thinks he's special. Well, he is special. When has he ever told anybody that they are "an asshole, a self-important, egotistical, holier than thou asshole."? He knows better than to judge people. I think you're baffled as to why this old, "stale" man has so much love and respect from so many people, and as a result of your jealousy, you took it upon yourself to discredit his monstrous achievements. Let me hear a song you wrote. Go on, record it. Let me hear it. Oh, you're not a songwriter? Why not? You can do anything you want to do. That's the deal. You have to put up with all the bullshit that comes along with life, but you can be ANYTHING. Soooo, Bob Dylan decided to use his precious time creating enlightening art for the world to live by, the greatest thing on earth besides love, and you decide to use your precious time hatefully, elaborately bad mouthing a man that has tried his hardest all his life to be as great as he can possibly be.

I suppose you could argue that I'm wasting my time badmouthing somebody, but I don't think so. It's not wasted time. I'll tell you why.

Go buy yourself a copy of Dylan Live '67. Then go buy yourself an 1/8th of an ounce of psilocybin mushrooms. Eat them. Whenever you start to feel uneasy, listen to this record. Then if you still think Dylan is an overrated egotistical asshole, come back here and report the new insight you have gained (HA!). Really. Do it. Just ask some long-haired red-eyed guy with a Grateful Dead shirt if he knows where to get mushrooms. He'll help you out. There's no reason to be afraid of eating them. They won't kill you. They can't. Just eat an eighth of some meaningless blue white and gold mushrooms and listen to this Dylan Live '67 album. After that, you can finally come back with proof and tell me how wrong I am. I'm not joking, I'm not talking trash. I recommend this to EVERYONE. If you can't find this album, look for the purple Jimi Hendrix Experience box sex. If you can't find these records, the Grateful Dead will do. If you can't find the mushrooms, LSD will take you to a similar place. Are you confused why in defense I suggested taking psychedelics and listening to artists other than Dylan? They are all from the same place. They have the same purpose, they are delivering the same message, only through different souls.

So do you have any reason why you can't do this? You don't. There is no excuse. When you die, your pineal gland in the center of your brain (some call it the third eye) releases the most intense psychedelic drug on earth, DMT. It's a tryptamine like psilcybin mushrooms and LSD. Your spirit leaves your body while you're on this drug and enters a timeless, purely spiritual existence (You can enter heaven or hell). So why not experiment with a softer drug like mushrooms for a few hours to prepare yourself for eternity? God put these magical things on earth for a reason. And Bob Dylan was put on this earth for a reason. And you and I were put on this earth for a reason. It's very important that we learn why before we die and lose our chance to set things right.

Save your comments until you take my advice.

I think yabbahabba missed the point of Chef's article. Nowhere did chef say that

a ) Bob Dylan wrote bad music;

b ) Bob Dylan's music is not good when you are enjoying psychadelic drugs (which incidentally also make country muisic and whale song fucking amazing); or

c) That Bob Dylan was not a part of the most romanicized while otherwise normal decade in the history of America.

What he said was that after a two-page rant against digital recording, Bob Dylan backed iPod. That Bob Dylan is an asshole for dismissing two decades of music as worthless simply by the nature of having been recorded for CD (Incidentally, in this he is including every U2 album from Rattle and HUm forward. Rattle and Hum is the one where he makes a guest appearance). Meanwhile Bob Dylan is not refusing, like some hip-hop artists, to record on CD, since to maintain his vinyl integrity would mean to reduce record sales. Bob Dylan in his hypocrisy actually makes a case for hip hop being superior to his current music, an argument I don't want to buy.

Bob Dylan is a curmudgeon, by definition.

Why does this remind me of that scene in the film "Detroit Rock City"(1999), when Tripp spikes the priest's pepperoni pizza with the mushrooms?

and its not just Bob Dylan,..Crosby,..of Crosby, Stills, & Nash did a recent televised interview on PBS, and basically said about the same damn thing about modern music...that its all trash.

I wish I had a link for that interview, it wasnt as bad as what Dylan is saying,..but close in nature.
