Chatting about Dylan to Time Magazine back in 2005, Young said: Ill never be Bob Dylan. Hes the master. If Id like to be anyone, its him.

Two years later his buddy repaid the compliment by telling Rolling Stone: Hes sincere and hes got a God given talent.

With that voice of his and the melodic strain that runs through absolutely everything he does. He could be at his most thrashy, but its still going to be elevated by some melody.

Dylan added: Neils the only one who does that. Theres nobody in his category.
