Bill freakin' Murray
Not much of what Dylan has done can be classified as singing imo. Saw him at CMAC about 10 years ago (just to have seen him), and wow... so, so bad.
If you want to hear what he's like when he actually sings, it's surprisingly good. Check out Dylan singing "Girl from the North Country" with Johnny Cash https://youtu.be/dyN-ya3rCPwnevermind the video is a scene from some chick flick.
Agreed. Dylan always had that, umm, unorthodox nasal tone, but on some occasions - when he was younger, when he was trying - it worked perfectly. And you really should listen to a couple songs from the recent "Dylan Sings Standards" albums. Mostly bad reviews, but amazingly some people (even professional music writers) like it - a true Emperor's New Clothes hero worship phenomenon. Scores an 80 on Metacritic! http://www.metacriti...icate/bob-dylan
On Murray: I saw a longer performance on CBS Saturday Morning yesterday. I kind of get it now, but it also has a kind of depressing "farewell tour" feel to it ... and looking quickly at a couple Dylan singing Sinatra reviews, it looks like people get the same vibe from that.
