I have many Dylan songs, covered by others, I collect them, in fact. :bigsmile:

The reason is that I think of him as a great poet, as a good songwriter, but as a nasty person who sometimes ruins his own songs.

Other songs that are covered WAY better than he ever did himself were: Mighty Quinn (Manfred Man) and It's All Over Now, Baby Blue (Van the Man, of course). Forever Young was sung by Chrissie Hynde in a way Dylan never could have done....

And a while ago my son surprised me with a download of KohD from Jon Bon Jovi, not bad at all!

Hendrix and Dylan's versions are both good, but my favorite version is by U2 on the Rattle and Hum album. :bigsmile:

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
