I may be in the minority but I have always liked Bob Dylan's voice, especially when he was younger. It is hard to sing well when you are in your sixties but some people can do it- Bob is not in that group. I remember a soloist in the Cascade Choir in Eugene, Oregon who (10 years ago) at 75 had a voice as clear and pure as a teenager. I don't live in Oregon anymore but I bet he is still singing. When people say your "voice" comes from your soul, I believe them. KD Lang said that about Roy Orbison in a documentary about him on PBS. Other musicians like Bono have said things like, "When he (Orbison) sings, it is like his voice comes from 'somewhere else'. There may be technical prefection, but heart and soul trump it every time.
