Now it is Bob Dylan's Turn to Critique Other Songwriters


It was announced in Rolling Stone  and other publications that in November Bob Dylan will publish "The Philosophy of Modern Song" which will be a collection of 60 essays about songs by other artists.  The announcement states only the following four:

  • Stephen Foster
  • Elvis Costello
  • Hank Williams 
  • Nina Simone 
But who else will Dylan critique?
  • Paul McCartney?
  • Paul Simon?
  • Roger McGuinn?
  • Neil Diamond?
  • George Harrison?
I guess we won't know until the book is published until November.  Over the years umpteen books have been written criticizing his lyrics and music.  Now the tables will be turned as he can critique others.  I must say that he is quite busy for an 80-year old.
