Bob Dylan to play at the Grammys

Full story: TwinCities.com

The producers of the Grammys want a show for the ages, but they also want a show for all ages - which is why Bob Dylan will be bringing his acoustic guitar to perform this weekend on the same stage as Justin Bieber, Drake and Katy Perry.

I am a big Bob Dylan fan of his stuff from the 60's and early 70's. Many of younger crowd don't realize how relevent and good his stuff at that time. Now they hear a person who can still write some decent stuff, but can't hit a note if his life depended on it. It is really sad to see him now still trying to be "Relevent".

Ive said it once and I'll say it again.
He is/was a great song writer but when he sings, it's like listening to someone kill a seagull with a bagpipe.

"'I Am My Words'" [Bob Dylan]
Newsweek (4 November 1963), pp. 94-95.

"He popped up out of nowhere, another unknown, unscrubbed face in Greenwich Village, and now, only two years later, he sits in the pantheon of the folk-music movement. His name is Bob Dylan, he is 22 years old, and his bewildered brown-blond hair trails off into uneven sideburns. He sticks his skinny frame into blue jeans and wrinkled shirts, and he talks hip talk, punctuated with obscenities. His singing voice scratches and shouts so jarringly that his success, at first, seems incredible. Yet his knack for stirring audiences, is unmistakable, and it stems, mainly, from the words of the some 200 songs he has written, simple words that pounce upon the obvious - the inequalities, dangers, and deceits of the 1960s - and hammer them home.

'DIG IT, MAN': Dylan admits he was born in Duluth and raised in Hibbing, but as he sat in a New York restaurant one day last week, after a recording session with Columbia Records, he denied that Bob Dylan was ever Bobby Zimmerman.'Dig my draft card, man,' he said.'Bob Dylan.'(He changed his name legally on Aug. 9, 1962.)

He may be awesome as a writer. He's horrible as a singer. Or maybe you like mumbling and in the inability to carry a tune, in which case he's the best.

I'm a 30 year old who has been listening to Dylan tracks since I was 15 years old and am well aware of all tracks. I've been fortunate to experience him live 8 times too. Him and Willie at Midaway was awesome and him and Simon in uluth were probably my two favorites. Anyways, I agree that his voice isn't as good as it once was, and whether or not his voice was ever considered to be good is another story, but to me it's all good and that's part of what made him so great. Come on people, give respect where respect is due. Dylan is still the man.

Dylan is a musical national treasure who created music that was the voice of a generation. He will always be relevant even long after he's gone. These low talent performers like Beiber and the rest will NEVER reach the level of Bob Dylan. They can only fantasize about it. They will fade away and be forgotten.

What's really sad is that someone purporting to be as old as you can't spell "relevant". And he doesn't have to try - he's still as relevant as ever, although today's Justin Bieber crowd naturally can't grasp that. Also, as belonging to the "younger crowd", I'm of the opinion his best work has been from 1973 on forward. And nobody else today still comes close. Anybody who doesn't like him is just as retarded as Jennifer Lopez and her blank stare after last night's performance. And all you Mick Jagger fags - sorry, "fans" - can put that in your crack pipe and smoke it.

1973 is a good date to remember. Bob Dylan has not been relevant since 1973. Mick Jagger's work stands on it's own. Jennifer Lopez is hot, not a great performer. And Justin Bieber probably would beat the crap out of Rick.

Somebody disagreed with this entry. Let me say it again, "Justin Bieber probably would beat the crap out of Rick".

Streisand's never awful, but I think she was suffering from a combination of nerves and
her older voice (she'll be 69 in May). She looked great though.
