He's one of the greats.  "Suzanne" "Bird on a Wire" "Hallelujah"--first rate poetry and first rate songs.

Sad to lose another classic artist in 2016.  Although at 82 I suppose we're getting beyond the "he died too young" cliche.

Undoubtedly a great lyricist I've never actually owned a record of his. As a performer he never appealed. When I saw film of his later tours I never got the adoration he was receiving except as a public show of coolness by the audience. 

I do like lots of his songs done by other people. Hallelujah has become a cliche and overdone in a similar way to Yesterday. But hearing other artists do Bird on a Wire, Famous Blue Raincoat or Anthem plus a heap of others shows his unique songwriting skills.

Yes me

I've been a fan all my life

In 1970 his album Songs from a room was a requirement for every student flat (apartment)

More of a poet than Bob in my eyes
