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.  :-)

 
Yep, I didn't take your comment any other way.  We all have our passions, often tied to the times & places of our lives. At almost 67, Dylan has been a mainstay since I was in short pants, as have The Beatles, Rolling Stones, etc.  The cool thing about music is there is something out there for each of us.  Enjoy your passions!

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.

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

 

It’s the first time the folk-rock icon has ever hit No. 1 on a Billboard chart

"Subjectively" perhaps.

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.

While it feels extremely cool and comforting, seeing Bob Weir doing these exercises originating from India, here's something about their source, shown in the documentary by Joey L. - Varanasi, India- "Beyond"

Click the link above, to get to the 'quote' within the documentary about Varanasi, India, or else watch the documentary as a whole: 
P.S. - Don't forget to look at the Syria thread. Posted a 2015 documentary on Kurdistan, "Former US-Allies..."

Made by the same photographer guy, Joey L.  from NY.

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.
