I was trolling through the online version of Rolling Stone the other day and came across their poll of the 100 Greatest Singers So I immediately went to see who was numbers 1 and 100 and found Aretha Franklin and Mary J Blige respectively and thought no argument there. Then I looked a little further and found that obviously the tone deaf work experience kid had put Bob Dylan and number 7 ahead of the likes of Freddie Mercury (18) and Roy Orbison (13)
To prove my point listen to the incomprehensible Bob Dylan murder his own version of Knockin on Heavens Door versus the Guns and Roses version. Whenever your own songs are done much better by others then you know you shouldnt be in the top 100 at number 7.
As a way of comparison here is the magnificent Freddie Mercury and the way cool Roy Orbison
