    Can words describe one of the most influential song writers in our culture..? Ironic, but probaly not .... When you think of KT Tunstall, you think of 'Black Horse and The Cherry Tree' ... but her rendition of this Dylan classic is the best of any cover I've heard, including The...

    All Thanks To My 7th Grade English Teacher

    My 7th grade English teacher introduced me to Bob Dylan's music when I was 13 years old. Although, when she introduced me to his music, I wasn't in her class anymore (just out of 7th grade) and honestly I don't know if she's ever even listened to Dylan a day in her life. She...

    So Much So So Much

    He is my favorite singer/ songwriter ever. Plus, he is so attractive circa 1965. I only got to see him once and I even told my boyfriend that if there was a glitch in the space time continuum and Bob Dylan was young enough for me to be with, that he would have to understand my...

    I remember when I was about 10 years old I was off school because I was unwell, so I was laying on the couch just flicking through the channels, to see what was on the TV so my day could be a little less boring. I turned on some music channel, can't remember what channel it was...

    Not Dark Yet

    I loved his early work up until the late 70's but found his stuff from Desire a bit disappointing although there were flashes of his brilliance. I'm much more interested in his acoustic stuff. Blood On the Tracks was a marvellous return to form especially the acidic Idiot Wind...

    Love Him!

    Bob Dylan is amazing. I can't believe what he created and who he influenced. Sometimes I think he's more important than the Beatles! Which is actually hard for me to say. I just wish he really believed in what he wrote. I don't always get that feeling from him when I hear him in...

    Blood On The Tracks

    That's one killer record. It stops you in your tracks and makes you open your mouth wide.  When I first heard this album, I had to give it a second listen to make sure I was hearing what I was hearing.  Then I had to stop because it was so intense. It makes the listener feel...

    Love Minus Zero / No Limit

    While the song does read as a straight love song to his ideal woman, the other side of it criticizes society for how they don't measure up to his ideal...by carrying roses, making promises, arguing and judging others, etc. at least to me, he wants people to see the selfishness...

    It Takes Alot To Laugh...

    I absolutely love this song!!! I just recently discovered Bob Dylan and I think he is a great poet, songwriter, and a great artist. I love the way he sings how he sings with feel. He is a great Revolutionary for music. He changed it forever.

    He's one of my inspirations.

    His music is simple, but absolutely beautiful and it makes me feel all kinds of emotion. I'd love to be able to play harmonica like him.

    He Can Do No Wrong

    I have loved all his music, from his folk songs to his newer stuff.  I love his voice, he really makes it work for him.  He's basically a poet who happens to make music.  I heard on an audio CD of his book Chronicles that one song that inspired his writing song was...

    Bob Dylan Is So Cool

    I have always loved his songs - the harsh reality mixed with great emotion. Life is short, sweet amd sometime hard. Over the last 20 years I have kept on coming back to Dylan (although I have changed a lot since my student days)

    Do You Mr. Jones?

    I've seen Bob twice, maybe three times... I know i saw  "Dead & Dylan" at J.F.K.Stadium in Philadelphia, back in 1989 ('88?). I may have seen him perform with them as a guest, elsewhere, but "hey, that time of my life is kind of hazy" memory-wise.  Most recently I saw him solo...

    Best Dylan Song

    My favorite Dylan song, “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues” is about a guy hanging out in Juarez, Mexico. I assume the song is basically autobiographical and the point of the song is that this is a tough town to navigate, even for a street-wise guy like Dylan, who generally...

    Self Portrait

    I've just been listening to Self Portrait, which many commentators think is one of Bob's worst albums. I must admit that when I first heard it, back in 1970, or whenever it came out, it did come as something of a shock. By then we were all used to albums containing his own...

    Bob's Theme Time Radio Hour

    I really enjoy having a quality DJ make the selections for my listening pleasure. When Bob Dylan spins on his "Theme Time Radio Hour," he is every bit the master that he is as a singer/songwriter. Thanks for the spin, great one.
