Reverend Jax Posted February 11, 2005 Share Posted February 11, 2005 I was thinking of pitting them against each other in a fight in Fight Club, but that's not fair 'cause Cash would win hands down. But give 'em each a guitar and a microphone and they are much more evenly matched. Lemme just compare the two: - Bob Dylan quickly rose to the top of the folk revival music scene in the 60s - Johnny Cash quickly rose to the top of the country western music scene in the 50s - Both where able to pull off being "crossover hits," becoming popular among crowds that normally don't listen to their styles. - Both fundamental changed rock music when they decided to experiment with it themselves. - Both have sub-par singing voices, and were only able to make it big with incredible songwriting and a huge set of balls. - Through many different levels of popularity, they both put out consistantly solid material. - Dylan is covered by everybody. - Cash covers everybody. Something tells me not many will vote on this poll, but I feels like postin' it, so be it. I hope people aren't compelled to vote for Cash just cause he died. I'm was sad about that too, but I'd rather it not play a role in this vote. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
