Personally I don't think he'd like it all!

Jakob Dylan makes uninspired MOR music that has never even come close to anything his father has made.

The worse thing about his music is that it's BORING!

Bob must cringe listening to it.

I don't think Jacob really tries to imitate Bob. He does his own thing. Some people like it, some don't, just like any music. I'm not personally a big fan, but a few of his songs aren't bad, but definitely not in Bob's caliber, to me. Others would probably say the opposite. I'm sure Bob's proud of him, though.

I disagree. Bob Dylan must be awfully proud of Jakob for writing/recording such wonderful music and doing his own thing. Songs like "Lend A Hand" and "Everybody's Hurting" are great, musically and lyrically. I recently posted in the Other Artists forum that I thought Women + Country was one of the best releases of 2010 and I stand by those words. Not because Jakob is Bobby's son, but because it truly is a fantastic album. I don't think Jakob is riding daddy's coattails at all.

Jakob is doing his own thing... it's just his thing isn't very good.

It's so bland!

His music is the least bit inspiring in any way.

I always thought that Walflowers album, Bringing Down the Horse, was pretty good.

Really liked Women & Country. And Bringing Down The Horse was a great album.

I'm sure Bob is proud of Jakob, as any father would be of their son.

i bet if he wasn't his son he wouldn't listen to it. it's un-real music and his voice is too pretty to believe. but i bet he likes his lyrics.

He's probably just proud that his son became a musician without exploiting his fathers legacy and choosing his own path. I can imagine it worrying him quite a bit.

I read some time ago, I do not remember where, that Bob said that he was waiting for Neil Young explains that kind of music plays his son.

Bob probably tells Jakob his music is pretty good. Meanwhile, chances are he has never taken the time to sit and really listen to it - and it must piss Jakob off to no end. Like my dad did with me. It's the typical distant and slightly dysfunctional Dad-son relationship type of thing.

I'm sure he's proud of everything he achieves. Most fathers are usually that way.

I really hope that Jakob and Bob share their love of music and have the odd jam over the holidays, not from any creative or musical viewpoint but just because it would be tragic for any father and son with such similar passions not to share them.

According to you. I happen to like him a lot.

What albums/songs do you dislike so much? :?

I betcha Bob's as proud as a peacock. He should be.

Is Bob on record anywhere saying something positive about Jakob's music? A proud dad wouldn't miss a single opportunity.

I definately think he'd stay quiet. Jakob has been trying to do his own thing. Bob blabbing about him wouldn't help - even if it's for praise.

Actually there is an interview right about the time the Wallflowers hit number one.... and if my memory serves the interviewer says that Bob was very much the proud father when asked about Jakob's music..... He did say that he was worried that the music business was so cutthroat that he would not have chose it for him....because he was worried he would get hurt.......... but that it was not his decision.... Bob said that he thought that maybe it was harder, not easier, for Jakob because of who is dad is.....

Then there was the Jakob interview a while back where he talks about his relationship with his dad being very good.......

There are lots of places where you can find that Bob has been a sh!t to women, or band members, or strangers, or reporters.......... but I think you would be hard put to find anyone who has ever said he was anything be good and supportive to his children.........

I've often wondered whether Bob's family like his music. There's a big age gap between him and his grandchildren. Fancy having him as grandpa out on the road every year

TTRH gave Bob a chance to turn people on to the music he likes. Did he ever play a Jakob song?
