Bob Dylan and the Pope

Bob remains ever countercultural, ever the pop-prophet. In the 60's he sang about social justice. He has continued to sing about the nihilism, relativism, materialism, hedonism, and me-ism of today. I only wish he had as much success inspiring the hearts and minds of young people today as he did in the 60's.

Hey! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I'm going to give myself some time (maybe this evening after my kids are in bed) to read up on your blog(s). But I wanted to tell you first of all, that Bob Dylan is my favorite!! I discovered him when I was a little kid, living in Asia (long story) and completely cut off from American music -- except that my mom had this piano book, Great Songs of the Sixties, in which several of Dylan's songs were featured. By the time I was ten, he was my favorite poet. When I moved back to this country at age 15 and confided to a new friend that my favorite poet was this guy named Bob Dielan, she nearly died laughing at me! She played me his music (the first of his songs I ever heard was "Don't Think Twice It's All Right") and I was SO hooked. Take Care!

Is it not inspiring enough that he tours the world today probably more than any current performer?

He's always written his truth. and that's enough for me. In fact there's more beauty in that than what lies in most of the crap that's shoved down our ears today.
