I can't afford to buy the few Dylan albums I like all the time.

His voice is perfect for the way he delivers lyrics. Swampy and so loose.

This. A thousand times this. Bob Dylan cannot really sing, but when you are listening to him, you don't care.

Not being able to afford cheap whiskey isn't a joke!

You're sending me some LSD, right? I'll send you a bottle of excellent whiskey.

I'll get on it, just make sure it's scotch or bourbon, not too into the rest.

I know this is a thread about Bob Dylan awful vocals, but i think this needs to be said.

One scotch, one bourbon, and one beer.

I guess Zimmie's inspiration for singing the way he does comes from Roscoe Holcomb. ... and maybe his a rabbi or a cantor. I don't know if he was religious or not to go to a synagogue to hear a cantor sing to inspire him to incorporate that into his singing. I'm not sure about the Jewish cantor, that is just a hypothesis. It seems he sounds very nasally when he speaks too, which could be a speech impediment, and with some speech therapy and some practice he can over-come it. Some people call it a "nasal whine." I guess his problem with that probably affects his singing. He really doesn't have the worst voice out there. Once you get used to it, it's no big deal. He does mention Holcomb as an influence though, so maybe that is what Zimmie is aiming for.
