Happy 70th Bob Dylan

If you know anything about my musical taste you would know that I have great respect and passion for many classic rock artists. There’s plenty of stuff from Dylan that I enjoy, but please, please, please don’t let him sing anymore. I don’t know who’s in charge of that, but in all honestly after that Grammy performance, that should be it.

I know that he has a very distinct and unique voice, but that’s not what bothers me. It’s just that that weird voice he has does not mesh well with his oldness. If you haven’t seen his 2011 Grammy performance with Mumford and Sons, please watch below so you can know what I’m referring to. It sounds like he’s got multiple infectious looogies in his throat while attempting to sing. I apologize for being so graphic, but it’s that disgusting.

If I was in Mumford and Sons, I would have pretended that I lost my pick and said “Uh, I’ll be right back”, but really would have just walked out and never came back. Here’s an idea, how about Bobby D. joins a death-metal band? At this point, his voice would sound more appropriate for that style of music. Now, if he was just really sick that night, than I am way out of line for going off on this. But I can’t imagine that he would sound any better on any other day. So happy birthday Robert Zimmerman, and congrats on making it to 70, and although I wish you well please remember that just because you’re still living, doesn’t mean that you have to keep performing.
