IMO, the thing with Dylan was he was one of the big faces of an entire movement (yeah, they were hippies and all, but a movement nonetheless) along with all the great music he did. The outrage when he went electric was deafening. Prince was just an amazing musician.

You’re saying Prince had no effect on styles, trends, musically and things like fashion? Ummm ok.

You’re misunderstanding me.

Dylan was one of the faces of an entire political/social movement.

I get that. But the influence that Prince had on the music scene over his life was also amazing. You were the one who said “Primce was just an amazing musician”. He was so much more than that to millions of fans.

Musically? I don’t know if anyone can touch Prince’s talent as a whole; if anything, simply the amount of instruments he could play/had mastered.

Dylan was more than just music/fashion/etc, though, and that’s not a knock on Prince.

My point being, I think Dylan MAY be the only MN thing bigger than Prince. Dylan is at least Prince’s equal, all things considered. Both were beyond awesome, for what they did and influenced.
