Thumbs down Simon Cowell: Bob Dylan Is Boring

SIMON COWELL: 'BOB DYLAN IS BORING'

Music mogul SIMON COWELL would be devastated if one series of US TV contest AMERICAN IDOL yielded him 10 BOB DYLANs - because he thinks the veteran singer/songwriter is boring.

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."

Re: Simon Cowell: Bob Dylan Is Boring

Safe to say Simon's only interest in music is selling a lot of it. Simon wants brainless bimbos (male and female) whom he can rob blind. Can you see Dylan trying out for that show? It would make a good SNL skit though.

I can just see him thinking, "What completely stupid, ill-informed and controversial thing can I say today to get my name in the papers." I'd guess he's trying to start a Rosie-Donald feud to boost his press.

Dickwad.

Sure, Simon's allowed to say it, and Infidel's allowed to call him a dip wad!

yeah, England...you know where they recently voted Queen more popular than The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, The Kinks, Moody Blues, Traffic, Ten Years After, Jethro Tull, Yes, E.L.P and so on....

maybe this explains his taste in music?

Yeah, Cowell's kind of a dickwad...he also happens to be right in this case. Who the hell would tune in to watch a bunch of Bob Dylan soundalikes on a singing competition?
Kelly Clarkson sings circles around Bob Dylan...with one vocal cord tied behind her back :)

Re: Simon Cowell: Bob Dylan Is Boring

First let me say if anyone here had started a topic with the same words I would be perfectly happy to have a reasoned, philosophical discussion. I just hate Simon Cowell, ok?

You're right in that 10 Dylan-types would perhaps be boring for the vast majority of people. But he says he prefers Clarkson's *music* to Dylan's, which I think is crazy. You want to say she's a better singer, fine. I would say that perhaps she has a better voice, but Dylan is the better singer. There's much more to being a good singer than having good vocal quality, IMHO.

I personally would still rather listen to Dylan sing than Clarkson. And before anyone asks, yes I have heard Clarkson's music. Well as much as I could stand anyway.

Maybe we should have a Bob Dylan vs Kelly Clarkson poll?

Re: Simon Cowell: Bob Dylan Is Boring

As if that's a suprise?

I like Simon because he's absurdly negative. Although, come to think of it, he is pretty predictable, heh. But anyway I wouldn't expect him to like Bob Dylan. Besides most people even on here disagree with me about Bob Dylan's great vocal ability so this is nothing new to me. I'd rather see Bob get respect as a vocalist than as a songwriter! Probably just because it's the other way around.
