Sounds more like he's going to be Paul Allen.

That's a picture of how Ernie Harwell feels every time he sees your signature.

Modern Times was great, I'm not a big fan of the rest of his recent output, although I've never listened to it all that much. But I am looking forward to his new one!

Its one thing to not enjoy his voice, its another to not recognize his lyrical talent, can't really be denied no matter what kind of music you listen to.

What recent output are you talking about? Modern Times is his latest album (until the end of next week or so). I'd count that recent output.

He said "the rest of his recent output". I guess he's talking about "Love and Theft" and Time Out of Mind. I guess, not sure if that's what he meant.

Yes, that's what I meant. I've been meaning to give them another listen, but haven't gotten around to it.

When we're talking about an artist that's been releasing music this long, I'd say anything released in the past decade is recent.

seen Dylan live twice last week,
and now I can honestly say IMO,

NO! Dylan is nowhere near washed up!
great concerts! he also performed "If You Ever Go To Houston"
for the first time, and it too sounded AMAZING!

the word "washed up" can't apply to somebody who a) never had any great musical talent (other than his writing) in teh first place, and b) has never really cared about being commercialy succesful at all.

dylan isn't a fucking legend because of how great a singer he was, or how great a guitar player he was.

dylan's a legend because he's bob fucking dylan, and you're not. maybe you're washed up.

I do take issue with your statement that Dylan never had any great musical talent. He's a great performer and also a great singer. True, his current voice is an acquired taste, but he has always been a great singer. Dylan's great singing his songs in his early days (the early Sixties) was of a big influence on music (not just folk, but also rock and soul). It maybe wasn't the prettiest voice, but it was a great voice.
Sam Cooke commented that when he heard Dylan sing he knew that the times were indeed a-changin'. It was no longer necessary to have a pretty voice to sing, but it would be more important to really mean what you were singing. Because he heard Dylan sing the truth.

And for that, you do need musical talent.

Dylan's guitar work is pretty underrated as well, at least before he stopped playing as much in concert. Even when they had three electric guitars going, he was still doing a lot of stuff. Whenever I watch my Woodstock '94 video I'm amazed at his shit.

I couldnt agree more with the 2 above comments, yeah Dylan is prolly the greatest songwritter there has ever been, but to add my voice to the 2 above comments his guitar playing go criminally unnoticed, he is an amazing guitar player, who wrote some v complex tunes with beautiful chord arangements, this also go's for his piano playing, which is incredible too, I dont get when ppl put Bob down as a bad singer either to me his voice is incredible, great melodys also, basically I think Dylan is an phenominal musician in all fields,
