Bob Dylan: Musician or Poet?
2 years ago

I say at poet whose work is musical!

By Dana Stevens

Dylan’s songs are primal and modern, poetic and cinematic. Many consciously aspire to the condition of literature.

Maybe its because I'm a writer whose writing is greatly influenced by music,but lyrics is what draws me to a lot of music with the quality of vocals being about the last consideration. Dylan and Bob Marley both are masters of the profound lyric or verse..

I kinda of like a voice that reflects the music and lyrics.  So..... I like Dylan.  Especially the 60's-70's Dylan.

I loved his vocals on Lay Lady Lay

Well, lyrics are very important to me too, which is probably one of my issues. I can't understand a word he says most of the time :/
