back    next   Dylan  © 1989 Tom Ferguson   This might be my fav'rite of the bunch... well, actually.... hard to choose but Dylan certainly influenced me more than any of the others. Without him I'm not sure I would have written songs. In about the  6th grade, good Lutheran, I used to pray to sing like Eddie Arnold. My visual preferences ran accordingly, Norman Rockwell. My only strategy for getting what I wanted was prayer. I didn't know about developing, about discipline... I hadn't heard Arthur Godfrey's wit, to wit: "Do anything 15 minutes a day & you'll become an expert at it." I missed that one tho I did hear his soothing voice on the radio and hear of him flying drunk under the Brooklyn Bridge.

He looks like he wishes he had his shades.
