Love me some Dylan. I've seen him three times myself, the last time was three years ago right here in Frederick, MD.

I really noticed his vocal degradation yesterday, while listening to his radio show. If his speaking voice has deteriorated so much, he must be having a rough time singing. I guess it goes to show that none of us are getting any younger.

I think Pitchfork does a pretty good job of explaining what is most interesting about his voice:

“Listeners who bridle even at Dylan’s 60s voice should, however, stay well away: This set shows the instrument in its progressive collapse into rheum and ruin. But only in terms of tone: When it comes to fitting voice to material, or threading the audience through a song, or capturing a lifetime’s lessons in a twist of inflection, he’s still one of the world’s best.”

He knows how to use his voice far better than almost anyone, but some people can’t get passed the sound of it to hear the technique he uses.
