The master wordsmith. His greatness cannot be denied.

But why waste words on someone so uninterested in their own?

I can understand that may be confusing. Let me clear it up. I have lost all reverence for Bob Dylan in the same way that Bob Dylan has lost all reverence for Bob Dylan.

I find it hard to revere a songwriter who shows very little interest in what their songs mean to themselves and what they mean to other people. It's like he just throws together words that sound good at the time, a little progressive melody, some unanswered questions and you got a Dylan song. And who cares?

Not me. Not anymore.
