Its a subjective thing for sure. I think that same thing sometimes about some pop music or when someone pushes a 25 year old expert in just about any subject in my face. But I digress.

Dylan is pretty special to me (again subjectively) Like most things that are worth carrying with me when I venture outside the box, his prolific gift is woven
through my experiences. I guess that makes it personal when someone says they don't like him. I'm curious but respectfully unflustered. Lol

 

To me, Dylan is a songwriter troubadour culturist street performer writ large bohemian warrior poet hero.

I've seen him many times beginning with the Rolling Thunder Review to about a year & a half ago in Boulder.  No two shows were alike & they were all great.

While fair enough no artist is for everyone, Dylan's place in history is firmly sealed for all time.  Meanwhile, he clearly has no fucks to give about what anyone thinks about him.  The best ones never do.
 
Of course.  I don't question the taste of fans of Bob Dylan.  Not one bit.  There are plenty of artists, of great fame or barely known, that I have little time for.  Doesn't make me wrong.  Or right.  Just not my thing.  I'm happy he's a fave of many here, but Dylan's voice isn't one for me.  Unlike politics, where if someone chooses the other side, well then, they are just plain stupid.  :-)

I actually just like his music or musicality, the melodies and compositions and even his voice.  Most have profound reasons for loving Dylan and the profundity of the man is without question, but just plain ol' liking his songs is usually not what is expressed enough in my opinion.  The deep wisdom of his lyrics is just icing on the cake for me.

I was 14 years old when Hard Rain aired on TV. I hadn't known Dylan for long at that time, but I was already obsessed. I remember desperately pleading with my parents to get the family TV to watch it - not an easy task in those days.

My first reaction - admittedly after being very unimpressed with the first half and then tuning out - is "WTF?"

It was a dark day in Dallas, November '63
A day that will live on in infamy
President Kennedy was a-ridin' high
Good day to be livin' and a good day to die
Being led to the slaughter like a sacrificial lamb
He said, "Wait a minute, boys, you know who I am?"

and

I'm just a patsy like Patsy Cline

Understanding that Bob concerts are wildly unpredictable, I'd still pay my money and take my chances, altho tix in the City are probably more expensive so the math changes some.

Desire and Blood on the Tracks are my two favourites.    Did most of my listening in the Single Mens' bunkhouse at the Fording Coal mine in SE BC while saving money to hitch to Tierra del Fuego.   

Thank the Gods for bunkmates with good tastes in music and vinyl players.

He saw an animal climb an oak so black
It was a really odd thing to see
Needles shooting out of his round back

Desire's my favorite too. But I got it around the time it was first released, addicted to it in my young teens. My Dylan purchases went something like this: Blood on the Tracks, Desire, Hard Rain, Street Legal, Before the Flood, Greatest Hits 2, Live at Budokan... then in college, I started buying his back catalogue, one record every week or two, starting with Bob Dylan and working my way chronologically back to the early 70s.

I especially love the looseness of Desire, the drums and the ethnic flavorings.
