What a musician... Maybe not much of a voice, but most of the time it suits his music.
The thing I love about him is his eerie but subtle discontent with life and the world. He shows a strange displacement in his writing and I like it... I also love his stories...
My favorites are : The Hurricane, I Shall Be Released, Knockin on Heaven's Door, All Along The Watchtower, Blowin' In The Wing, The Times They Are A-Changin', Don't Think Twice It's All Right, Tangled Up In Blue, Forever Young, The Mighty Quinn, Like A Rolling Stone, Rainy Day Women # 12 & 35, A Hard Rain's Gonna Come, Maggie's Farm, Mr. Tambourine Man, Subterranean Homesick Blues, Positively 4th Street, the Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll and Ballad of a Thin Man.
Phew... And that's only his more popular stuff!... A lot of great music from this man, and it's time we pay tribute to him here!
Plus I'm going to see him next month!
(He's also a fifth Beatle! He obviously inspired the Beatles around their "middle period"; he wrote "If Not For You" with George, too)
