Tribute to bob Dylan

Tribute to Bob Dylan

I remember well when I was young
And music was my thing
There was Billy, Elvis Cliff Richard
And to me these guys did bring
Wonderful moments in my life
As I bought all of their stuff
But then this other guy came out
And Lord, that was enough

My interest it went to him
Who changed the status Quo
His name it was Bob Dylan
And me I watched him grow
From a young folk star, to a rock legend
He did change music’s face
As he prophesized some potent things
That would touch the human race.

He told us in his screaming voice
[As he played his mystic role]
That all the sons and daughters
Would be out of our control
He sang of the whole world changing
And I’m seeing that come true
Oh Yes, that old Bob Dylan
I loved what he did do.

    Hello Peter, I saw Bob Dylan in the title and I couldn't resist to read what you had to say about him. May I say I agree with you!!! Bob Dylan is one of my favorite musicians, I admire what he sings and how he sings it! Not many people like his voice, but that is what makes him BOB DYLAN! The one and only! Great tribute to such a great artist! Great write Peter. and may I also say I am feeling better than ever, and a smile on my face!!! :)

    Thanks Chris, yes Bob was [and still is] an incredible man. most people tell me that I copied his style of music, but I actually copied the people who inspired him, like Jimmy Reed, and Woody Guthrie. He sings real bluesy these days, like an old blues man [I love blues too} I appreciate your comments, my friend. And I am glad that the 'Looking' is working for you...Peter

    Thank you so much sara. Bob Dylan was the man who changed music to what it is now, in the early sixties...Peter
