Misc comments[edit]

There should be an article on Desirée.

Your mom's Desiree.

Billy Cross swedish??[edit]

Billy Cross was born in NYC and moved to Denmark sometime in the eighties. Swedish? I think not.

You are correct, except he moved to Denmark in the 70s. 650 Norton (1951) (talk) 17:27, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

an abidingly creative artist[edit]

The following is a quote from the second to last paragraph.

"Street-Legal would be the first in a long line of song collections whose failure to be realized in the studio would lay a 'dust of rumors' over Dylan as an abidingly creative artist that he has never been able to fully shake," writes Heylin.

Though attributed to "Heylin", of whom I have not read (unfortunately), it is unclear where this quotation starts. Only an ending quotation is present. Also, despite being a moderately well-educated native speaker of English, I fail to understand what "an abidingly creative artist:" means.

In each definition I've found for "abidingly" that I have come across the word is said to mean, "enduring". So the poor studio recordings leave a dust of rumours about Dylan's enduring creativity? The sentence makes this sound like a negative result.

Should the sentence be interpreted that critics question whether Dylan continues to be creative?

I realise it is supposedly a quotation from a critic, but perhaps it should be paraphrased for clarity.

Otherwise, very interesting article... Thank you for all of the hard work put into it so far. I plan to make a few minor edits in earlier parts of the article where I felt it necessary to re-read some sections several times for clarity.

It's not well written but it's quite clear for this moderately well-educated native speaker of English (although I stopped taking classes in reading after 3rd grade). It means some people thought the sound was crap and that led them to wonder if perhaps Dylan wasn't really as good as they thought. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:18, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Rundown Rehearsal Tapes[edit]

Several hours of the '78 tour rehearsals are now on YouTube. Should we link to those? I suppose not, given that they might be taken down, but perhaps mention that tapes of the rehearsals exist? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Drbeechwood (talkcontribs) 21:57, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

“Background” section seems too long[edit]

There’s a lot of useless information in the “background” section. Particularly all the stuff about his divorce seems unnecessary. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:38, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
