Music-wise I identify with Neil Young's Lyrics much much more, and he writes better songs, its just that Dylan writes the odd crazy popular song and everyone focuses on that. I recently read Young's biography and Dylan was a total tosser to him apparantly, they were to play on stage together and Dylan got really aggressive when Neil played even though he totally tried to take over his gig when it was the other way round. He never played with him again, to this day that I know of, and badmouthed him too. I think Dylan knew how big a threat Neil was to his career and tried his hardest to sabotage Neil's.
