“Bob [Dylan] is not authentic at all. He’s a plagiarist, and his name and voice are fake. Everything about Bob is a deception.”—
Joni Mitchell being scarily outspoken. I’d fear the wrath of Bob and his fans.
Although, having said that, Bob’s fans are a unique breed - they seem to queue up to slag him off. At a recent London gig, a man stood up in the middle of Bob’s set and shouted “You cantankerous old bastard!” — and received applause.
An odd bunch. But then it is Bob Dylan we’re talking about, I guess.
