Nobody. He doesn't have to be him to be as good as him, which he isn't.

That's a question of taste Bob Dylan was certainly influential, and a great changer in music, but I'm not a huge fan of his stuff. I find his voice a bit whiny at times. They are rather different styles, and for that simple fact I would never try and compare the two. It'd be like saying whether Bon Jovi were better than Daft Punk...

Their Styles aren't that different. His dad was the godfather of the style that he uses.

I'm going to post my favourite Jakob Dylan Song here:



They both have unique voices, and I personally appreciate both these fantastic singers individually.

As for Bob's voice, I personally love it! With songs such as "When the Deal Goes Down", the coarse gruffness sounds worldly wise and in a fascinating way, really beautiful to me.

What about "one more cup of coffee"? He does some great singing in that song. Bob is one of my favorite vocalists ever. His voice was like a chameleon. I don't know why he gets so much flak about his voice. He can sing better than a lot of musicians that don't get near as much flak as him. Lou reed for one. And Mr. Reed really learned a lot from Bob. Bob was a master of vocal phrasing and intonation. He had a very poetic way of singing. It was almost like he was reciting poetry instead of singing. He fused the two. Lou Reed really used that same style. The imperfections in his voice make it unique and great. Value is too often placed on clean and "perfect" voices.

Sean Lennon sucks. If his dad was not John Lennon, he would have been forgotten already...

I remember when "Home" was a single for him, and thinking at the time it was cool... now i hear it and say it is pretty dreadful.

I think he got his "talent" from the Ono side.

I will allow that there are connections between the music that Bob created and the general genre of what Jakob is singing. I will allow that both of them could at times be put until the general title of "Country-Folk Blues" or something similar. Their "Style" is in my opinion totally different. Bob was rather political, and his music is much more coarse, much harder. Jakob's seems to be very much softer, much closer to Iron & Wine and that lot.
