Bob Dylan Lashes Out At Critics With Some Bad Words

Bob Dylan-SP101610
Bob Dylan is famous for many things—brining a literary slant to popular music, galvanizing pop culture in general, writing several classic records and songs, folding multiple musical genres into the rock ‘n roll format, etc.  He’s also known for being just a tad crotchety.   So it should come as no surprise that in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, while discussing his...

Well, this comes as kind of a blow for Bob Dylan fans—turns out Bob has been clearly plagiarizing a ton other artists lately.  Breathe easy, though, music fans—the rip-offage comes not in his music, but in the singer/ songwriter’s series of paintings on display in the Gagosian Gallery in Manhattan.

Bob Dylan Set to Perform in China

In an unexpected but certainly welcome bit of news, Spinner reports that the Chinese government has decided to allow Bob Dylan to perform in Beijing this April. Few expected this to occur, as Dylan--at least, 1960s era Dylan--is an icon of youth movements and revolutionary ideals. Not exactly values the Chinese government is known to fully support.

Apparently, there’s an actual reason to watch the Grammys this year—in between a multitude of cutaway shots to Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, and whatever hellish podpeople Will Smith has sent forth from his loins to enslave the populace, there will be a special performance by none other than Bob Dylan.

Albums of the Week: The Bad, The Good - Bob Dylan Vs. Lil' Wayne

Posted by

Bob Dylan-SP101610
What do Bob Dylan and Lil'Wayne have in common? pretty much nothing, although these two artists have made this week's top 5 featured albums. Of course the cake winner is Dylan, with years of raspy crooning and twangy guitar tunes under his belt, still managing to please the critics and awe fans 30-some odd years down the road. Check out these other artists who've released new music as well,...

Joni Mitchell: Bob Dylan Is A "Plagiarist" And A "Fake"

Posted by

Yesterday, in an interview with the L.A. Times, Joni Mitchell dropped a bomb (well, for classic rock/ folk fans it was bomb, to everyone else it’s probably more like distant thunder or that noise your new MGMT record makes when you turn it down super-low out of embarrassment when people pass by your car) in insisting that Bob Dylan—you know, that guy who wrote...

China Blocks Bob Dylan Tour

Posted by

Dylan
The more times a-change, the more they stay the same—though Bob Dylan has moved beyond the protest movement that he really only involved himself in from ’62-’63, apparently China still views the rock ‘n roll bard as something of a mind-altering threat. Therefore they don't want him or his "crazy" music entering their country.

As more and more summer music festivals announce their lineups (and Lollapalooza?  Please, please, please don’t make Green Day and Lada Gaga headliners), Kent, England’s three-year-old “No sponsorship/ No branding” Hop Farms festival just snagged a Major—NME reports that none other than rock ‘n roll bard Bob Dylan will headline the Saturday, July 3rd event.  And...

Bob Dylan's Must Be Santa Video Is A Strange Comeback
We previously commended Bob Dylan for making a Christmas album which will have proceeds go to charities that provide hunger relief. However, Dylan just doesn't seem to be himself these days. Or perhaps, he's just cracking out of that bubble where all music fiends, like us, glorify him for his magnificent songwriting during his Blonde on Blonde...

If you've been to a Bob Dylan show in the past few years, then you know the iconic rocker isn't looking like his old self. On July 23, a New Jersey homeowner felt the same way when an “eccentric-looking old man” wandered into his yard. Rain was pouring down and the figure, dressed in sweatpants tucked into rain boots with several rain jackets and a hood pulled over his head, prompted the...

It's that time of year again when we show appreciation to the men who we owe our lives to. No, I am not talking about your future ex-husbands (you know I'm right, have you seen the divorce rates these days??), I am talking about your father!  Now even though I was generalizing and not all children are blessed to have a father who is always there for them and who always provides them with...
