HOW DOES THE GREATEST SONGWRITER BOB DYLAN HAVE ONE OF THE WORST VOICES? ?

It’s a joke everyone. He’s my favourite singer 

What do you think & why?

    Leonard Cohen was also not much of a singer.  Dylan only sounded good on the "Nashville Skyline" album.  

    I have to congratulate "Obi Wan ..." below on his winning MORON of the Month by claiming John Lennon was a "terrible singer."  He must be the only person in the Universe to think that.

    I think your CAPS key is stuck, and I think I'm right.

    Lots of terrible singers write good songs.  John Lennon, Lemmy, Sex Pistols, any grunge band... you don't need good vocal skills to write a good song.

    One doesn't have to be a singer in order to be a great song writer.

    "Bob Dylan has a voice very much like a dog with its leg caught in barbed wire. But that doesn't matter, because what he does is write the songs." Doug Dillard

    When you write as well as Bob Dylan does, you don't need a good voice.

    I'd nominate Joe Cocker as runner up.

    It was the lyrics that made him great, and the lyrics he wrote spoke to our generation.
