She's the worst kind of Welsh person. I've always hated her loud mouthed, 'I'm stupid and I don't care persona', calling Dylan a freak has pushed my hatred over the edge.

The current Prime Minister David Cameron is apparently a huge fan of Bob Dylan. His deputy, Nick Clegg apparently a huge fan of Celine Dion.

Won't be lending out the CDs then?


Cameron once moaned that the left were the only ones allowed to like protest songs. Maybe he listens to a hard rains a-gonna fall while he's making decisions that are ruining the country?

Desert Island Discs is a radio programme in the U.K., something of an institution, where figures from public life choose the 8 songs that they would like to have if stranded on a desert island - David Cameron famously went for Tangled as his absolute fave; Margaret Thatcher went for How Much is that Doggie in the Window? as her number one - that is, if she could only have one song to listen to over and over and over again alone on a desert island that's what she would have chosen. Here are some of those who have chosen Dylan among their 8 -

Jack Vettriano (Rousseau of his time and Scotland) - Rolling Stone
David Walliams - Big Girl
Ricky Gervais - Say Hello
Jeremy Irons - Make You Feel My Love
Bill Nighy - Tom Thumb
Monty Don (gardening guru) - Nobody ‘Cept You
Peter Carey (Antipodean scribe) - Idiot Wind
Stephen King - Desolation Row
Billy Connolly - Highlands
Nick Parks - Lowlands

Tom Waits is often chosen, which is nice.

Heard Norm MacDonald say he was a Bob Dylan fan which is why he named his son Dylan. Then he got pissed because everyone started naming their kids dylan after that guy from 90210.

Frank Skinner is quite a big Dylan fan, and I was listening to his radio show on Saturday when he claimed that Johnny Cash had said the proof that Cash and Dylan were good friends was that they one went on a fishing trip and didn't speak for four hours.

Stewart Lee -
I never liked Bob Dylan. I thought he had an annoying voice and my university friend Mike Cosgrave, a musician and metalurgist, said Dylan's principle lyrical concern seemed to be the attribution of metallic properties to non-metallic objects. Then, when I wasn't living anywhere in 1999, I stayed on the comedian Simon Munnery's floor and he used to deprive me of sleep by playing this track over and over again until I realised it was genius. Now I love Simon Munnery.

Jack Vettriano name-checked Dylan and Joni Mitchell when interviewed on TV the other morning. He said something along the lines of: listening to them meant he 'caught melancholia too early'.

He also mentioned the Band and how he titled a self portrait The Weight, and was pulled up by someone for his spelling.

Immaculately coiffered Leighton Baines is a Dylan fan - http://www.evertonfc.com/news/my-first-music-blog

And Sir Alex Ferguson may be. From a GQ interview :
[Ferguson] talked to me, for instance, about Bob Dylan's use of narrative in his songs, then said: "You know - I've only got one of his CDs".

On leaving the MEN after Bobs show in 2011, I spied somebody I thought I recognised. At first I was sure it was Miles Kane, but a few minutes later I realised it was Leighton Baines, Englands best left back for the last 2 or 3 seasons.

No doubt Johnny loved it in the movie, the late Dr. Thompson was a big, big fan of Bob's as well.

I was there too, and upon leaving spied Badly Drawn Boy and heard him say loudly to no-one in particular, "whoever said he can't sing musta been mad, that were fooking transcendent that were."

Came across this just yesterday, great vid of a great gig at MEN 2011:

Maybe we should have another thread on who you would find the most disgusting to be a fan. Yunno, like finding out Barbara Bush was an avid fan and had many bootlegs as well.

George Best's favourite song was Positively 4th Street. They may even have played it at his memorial service.
