Arthur Alexander is not the only person to write songs that were recorded by Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. The Rolling Stones released a live version of "Like a Rolling Stone" sometime in the 90's. The Beatles sang "Like a Rolling Stone" on the "Let It Be" album (well a couple of lines :() Bob Dylan wrote and recorded "Like a Rolling Stone". So, Bob Dylan can share that honour with Arthur Alexander. :jester:

That's the first and only Bob Dylan song I've ever heard.

Roger,

Where've you been. What about "Hurricane" which was the subject of a movie in the last few years? Or "Things have Changed" which won an Oscar a couple of years ago? Or "Mr Tambourine Man" which heralded a new genre of music called folk rock (mind you, that was back in the 60's)? Do you have the TV series "Absolutely Fabulous" where you are? Guess who wrote the theme song (This Wheel's On Fire)? etc etc etc

Nope, no AF here. We watched a video on Bob Dylan today and yesterday in History. I swear, all we ever do in that class is watch videos about music and food. We have watched documentaries on Pizza, The Hamburger, Jello, and Spam. And he actually wants to show us more. But I digress. I don't think Bob is all he's cracked up to be.
