Response to What “Favorite” Bands Are Huge Red Flags?:
I don’t think you can say that about Bob Dylan, given that he’s been a successful recording artist for over 50 years now, has a MASSIVE back catalog (some of which is crap, but almost everything he recorded and released from the early `60s to the mid `70s is among the best and most important music in music history), and he is easily the most important songwriter of the last 50-plus years. A lot of people - particularly people under 30 - just don’t know enough about him and his music to understand that. He changed songwriting. “No Direction Home” (Scoresese’s film about Dylan) should be required viewing.
