I think it actually belongs to the Jehovah's Witnesses, but I'd love for Jim to steal it back from them.

OK...I figured so. I don't see Dylan as much of a "cover" artist. He's the genius who others cover.

That being said, I'd go with Jimi. I loved Bob's lyrics, but hated his voice.

Jimi. I'm not sure, but I think I read somewhere that Dylan thinks Jimi's is superior.

Most boring version is the Dave Matthews Band.

Lots of people seem to feel that way. For my part, I play it tuned down half a step, and I don't sing nearly as nasaly.

I don't think anybody on this planet does sing nearly as nasaly.
