    Forever Young for me. Yes, I'm incredibly bored. Plus I want to look more into his music.

    Mine is definitely the Hurricane. It's the story of Ruben "Hurricane" Carter the boxer who was falsely convicted of murder. The movie with Denzel Washington was good too.

    Best Dylan song: Positively Fourth Street
    Best Dylan album: Blonde On Blonde
    Best Dylan moment: when he told the folk traditionalists and music critics to get stuffed...and embraced rock and roll at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival.



    BTW> The Guy, AKA Freddie Mercury Ron Burgundy, et al:

    Is Robert Allen Zimmerman a hockey fan? Or are you just bored?

    Cheers.

    Bob Dylan's brother taught me to play recorder. Before we came to Canada we spent a year and a half in Rome, waiting to get an entry visa. My sister and I ended up going to the Overseas School of Rome -- a private school populated, mostly, by children of diplomats and ex-pat execs working overseas. And they had a policy for helping out penniless immigrants. Anyhow, Roy Zimmerman was the music teacher, and I had a music class with him. Couldn't afford a guitar, so recorder it was. Several years layer we found out (through a friend) that this guy was Bob Dylan's brother.

    And he's still there:

    As to favorite song, "Shelter from the Storm". Don't know why.

    Pretty much anything of the Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, but especially Masters of War and Hard Rain Gonna Fall.

    Masters of War is awesome.

    Has there ever been a better songwriter than Dylan? Maybe Willie, but there's just about no competition.

    I think Neil Young and Bob Dylan are on equal footing. Songs like Southern Man and Old Man are absolute masterpieces.

    It was made famous by Jimi Hedrix but All Along The Watchtower is one of his better songs imo
