    Dylan may be a better lyricist but Knopflers got quite a wonderful albeit simple voice.

    IMO it would be Mark Knopfler

    Come on everyone admits Dylan is not a singer. Well at least a bad one. But Knopfler, he's okay, but sure can pick that guitar.

    Well neither of them, but if I had to chose I'd say Knopfler

    Neither one of them are known for their singing.  Song writing yes, lyrical genius yes, but singing not so much.  

    I do rock vocals, and both of those guys are extremely easy to cover.  If you're going to compare rock vocalists known for their unique voices or talents, Dylan and Knopfler wouldn't be on the list.  Go with singers like Bruce Dickinson, Bon Scott, Robert Halford, Robert Plant, Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, Freddie Mercury, etc.

    You might as well ask who's the better guitarist; Vince Neil or Steve Tyler.

    Bob Dylan - he mumbles less than Mark Knopfler.

    Dylan isn't a better singer than anyone really, but he's a better writer than pretty much anyone.

    For my taste, Mark Knopfler.

    I like a lot of his stuff, Dire Straits etc.

    I have never rated Dylan at all..
