Hell he got booed when he first plugged in back in what – 1964? – all the pure folkies who loved him in the coffe shops of NY couldn’t accept he had gone electric. He’s been getting under audiences skin since he started pissing off his neighbors and fellow students in Hibbing! Guy hasn’t changed.

This. This is why I mentioned him “vs” Prince in the first place. He had the ear of a whole generation, and it was more than music. Frankly, if it was only music, I think Prince buries Dylan, and I love me some Dylan.

I think they both had their place in time. Dylan’s strength were his lyrics at a time when people just did nor question authority much – or if they did paid a heavy price – see Selma.

Prince a totally different time – different message. I wouldn’t choose which is the better. Different but powerful.
