Bob Dylan praises Eminem, says he’s big fan

Yesterday, The Wall Street Journal published an interview with legendary singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, where he discussed a range of topics from the rise of technology and streaming to his favorite television shows.

When asked about how he discovers new music, Dylan said it arrives “mostly by accident”, before listing musicians who he’s been listening to of late and among them was Eminem and Wu-Tang Clan, both of whom Dylan said he is “a fan of”. He praised both for their “feeling for words and language”, saying he enjoys “anybody whose vision parallels mine.”

Bob Dylan previously mentioned Eminem in a 2001 interview with Time magazine. Dylan revealed that he hadn’t listened to much of Eminem’s music, but said that the rapper was “doing something right. I almost feel like if anything is controversial, the guy’s gotta be doing something right.”
