ROFL that doesn't make Bob Dylan unoriginal. Is that your back up!? Because he was influenced (albeit majorly) by Guthrie? Are you saying that Dylan didn't develop his own voice? I'm not talking about voice as in the sound that came out of him - I'm talking about his own way of seeing the world, speaking out for the things he believed in? His lyrics are the standards in which other lyricists are compared to. Do you think that happened because he was unoriginal? Dylan goes from a political album to an introspective album and then he goes electric when it was almost certain suicide for him to do so? His constant reinvention and his timelessness certainly take care of the Non-Recycling category. He even won the Kennedy Center Honors award as a rock star (the FIRST to do so) in 1997... this award, if you don't know about it, is considered the nation's highest award for artistic excellence. There is so much more to say - but I am lazy. But I guess you could go read one of the many books about Dylan and his work. I guess if you can make it into Harvard or Stanford you can take the class about Dylan that they currently offer. I guess if you do a quick search on google and maybe learn about something before you make an off the cuff statement that compromises the ability for people who know about music to take you seriously.

Listen to Woodie Guthrie? That was it?

Give me a break.

I've read the Bob Dylan Chronicles, I don't see how I can be told off for making cuff statements when you treat it like I heard Mr. Tambourine Man on the radio and thats all I know about Dylan.

In volume 1. he talks about his albums, and he never once aimed to be original he aimed to make folk music and guess who he tried to sound like as much as possible? Woody Guthrie, he even admits it. He was criticized by some local scenester for it and was shown some album by Jack Elliott (not rambling) who was a another folk artist who did exactly what Guthrie did but 'better', and then Dylan started sounding like that. Thats not super original is it?

Anyway that post was more meant to prove the point that Inuzaka's standards of amazing were flawed which seemed to be able to apply well to certain genres but not to others.
