Re: Simon Cowell: Bob Dylan Is Boring

Granted, Dylan isn't for everyone, however I suspect that Cowell doesn't prefer Dylan because it takes a bit of a thought process to wrap your brain around Dylan's songs as apposed to the vacuous songs of Clarkson. I'm not denying that Clarkson can sing but I really don't think you can compare the two as they are ions apart.

Re: Simon Cowell: Bob Dylan Is Boring

hmmm...

ok, #1. For the most part, I like Simon. If you can't sing, he'll tell you. Yes, he can be well, a bit harsh at times but I suppose that's just the way he is.

#2 Bob Dylan seems to be one of those "I can't believe you like/don't like him" kind of artists. While I appreciate the fact he wrote some very thought provoking and meaningful lyrics, I just don't like his voice.

#3 Kelly Clarkson , IMHO, does have a voice, and while I don't own any albums by her, I do enjoy her music.

The sharp-tongued British judge admits he prefers American Idol winner KELLY CLARKSON's music to the legendary Dylan's output.

He says, "If I had 10 Dylans in the final of American Idol we would not get 30 million viewers. I don't believe Bob Dylan would make American Idol better show.''

"A singing poet? It just bores me to tears. I prefer Kelly's music to Dylan's."
Hey Simon maybe you should compare in a proper time frame let alone is he talking about today's Dylan or his early 60's vocals?

If the year was 1963:
Dylan's work and singing compared to Clarkson's would be fine and more people would tune in to hear Dylan and his lyrics and vocals over pathetic Clarkson's lyrics and while her vocals would have been good it wouldn't fit those times as much.

Now we will have to wait until Ms Clarkson's about 60 and see how her vocals hold up to today's Dylan and lets see if she can write 30 plus great albums over that time.

Re: Simon Cowell: Bob Dylan Is Boring

It says something about the way the pop music audience of today views "good music" if they just pass-off Dylan as "boring".

If you're into cookie-cutter, bleach blond, big boobed Britany Spears type bimbos for your musical intake - then I guess Bob Dylan would bore you.
How unfortunate.

Re: Simon Cowell: Bob Dylan Is Boring

I'm pleased Cowell is making programmes in the US, because it keeps the idiot off our screens for a while.

He can have an opinion, but I wont take a blind bit of notice of him.

UK tv seems to consist purely of reality and talent spotting shows at the moment, and this fool bears part of the responsibilty for this.

The acts that win these shows have a couple of weeks fame, vanish, and then he starts the process again.

At least Dylan has hung around a few years without the help of Cowell.

You may have noticed I dont like him or his shows

Re: Simon Cowell: Bob Dylan Is Boring

Kelly is a great artist, truly the best Idol to come from the show.

Dylan wouldn't make tv interesting.

No real need to compare them Simon.

I like Simon though, he's the one I always agree with.

He's allowed to give his opinion. He didn't tell anyone to shut the fuck up either. You are acting like Day Tripper and we all know what happened to him.

I don't think Dylan fans (myself included) are American Idol's target audience.

What do you mean universal in songwriting? That their songs appealed to the most people? Or that their songs were contributed equally on by all the band members?

Well he won't have many more times of pulling that. He's about on his last leg.

Re: Simon Cowell: Bob Dylan Is Boring

i am guessing he thinks or demands that everyone like queen, i like about 2 aongs and thats about it, so i don't qualify as a queen fan.
