Nick Jonas Says Bob Dylan Can't Sing
|"Oh brother" is more like it for passionate Bob Dylan fans|
For those not in the know, I always enjoy a good piece of Dylan material (just google Michael Lopez + Dylan). I am flustered, at the age of 25, by how he remains as culturally relevant as he does in these times. People have pointed out that I "don't get" Dylan, and they are right. I have never liked his music and I choose to look toward other musical icons to idolize. It's my basic right as a fan of music to listen to whomever I want. That being said, I still don't think Bob Dylan had the second best album of 2008 and I am utterly confused -- after having listened to the album multiple times -- as to why Dylan recorded a Christmas album this past fall.
But c'mon, even some of you diehard Dylan fans know the guy can't sing. No one has ever marked him as having one of the best singing voices. Dylan can write the hell out of a song and he is an unmistakable cultural and musical icon -- but a talented singer? That is hardly the case, and no one ever came away from one of his albums thinking he has a lovely, even coherent voice. I am sure his singing voice endears Dylan himself to a multitude of his fans, but even the staunchest Dylan supporters have to know that people have been poking fun at him for years over the way he sings.
You think I'm too young to take the piss out of Dylan? Nick Jonas is 17 years old. Keep it up, young man. You've got a bright future ahead of you.
