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.

I think it’s a factor in the discussion that Prince claimed Minnesota far more actively than Dylan … I feel like singing “Let’s Go Crazy” in the streets last night was just as much a celebration of Minneapolis music as it was the life of Prince. I don’t think I would get that same experience from Dylan. So many stories coming out of him going music shopping at the Fetus, or attending a show at the Dakota in his final week … the guy seems genuinely proud of the local music scene.

Exactly. Dylan is just some guy born here, Prince was MN. He was truly one of us.

I won’t even begin to claim that Dylan was proud of his MN roots. I know better (and given where he grew up, I don’t blame him*).

*My dad grew up near Dylan, and Dylan actually asked my aunt out on a date in HS. She said no. Why? “He was…off. Kinda weird.”
