The oddity is that Bob Dylan himself has always resisted/refused to be anyone's hero. While he has been called the voice of a generation, he always resisted that label--indeed, any label. ("Don't follow leaders" he says in Subterranean Homesick Blues.) I have appreciated him (and similarly Neil Young) for his independence and willingness to try new directions. I have not been the sort to seek a hero to emulate for the most part. But it is ironic that Bob has refused in a sense to pay forward for what he got and has admitted was important to him. Ironic, but...isn't there a moral flaw there?
