Essentially, what needs to be done is to love the songs and not the so-called "man". I think this is what needs to happen if we're going to get behind the people who want to play Dylan's music. If we could just get past somehow needing his performance to justify the songs and instead listen to others "without prejudice" (George Michael), we're going to hear people loving the music and trying their best as musicians. Surely every Dylan fan would agree the more the songbook is promoted, the better. Once we're past the cynical idea of sacrilege or "destroying" the original, we can all share in the joy of Dylan's American songbook. There's just no doubt that a good hundred or so of his original songs are timeless and meant to be passed down from generation to generation for many generations to come.
Listen to a cover like you were hearing your buddy's band give it a go.

Sooo like I agree wholeheartedly,in fact what's the word? To the mellifluous sentiment that overlies the silence following this sacreligous subterfuge.
