Joni Mitchell, legendary folk singer, had a new interview with the L.A. Times. She spoke her thoughts on Bob Dylan. She claims that Bob Dylan is a fake. She thinks his music ripped off other artists. She also accuses him of plagiarism.
More on it here:
Well that’s kind of weird. Considering that Joni Mitchell have performed with him many times as you see in the picture above. I bet she also covered many of his songs. Since she seems such a huge fan of Bob Dylan, why would she say this now after all these years?
Who knows. Maybe Bob Dylan himself will actually agree with her. Dylan is a pretty weird guy in interviews and has a weird sense of humor. I’m not much of a Bob Dylan fan ’cause his folk music always reminded me of Woody Guthrie and Hank Williams Sr. Maybe those are the artists she’s referring to where Dylan stole his ideas from.
It may be harsh, but I think she’s right on the money. Bob Dylan is overrated.
