my vote goes for bob dylan. thats for a lot of reasons. the issues he stood for. the attrocities he spoke out against. the increadibly beautiful (and timeless) lyrics which could put most poets to shame. for being a legend in his time and an icon of the troubled latter half of the 20th century for defending the underdog all throughout - be it the millions of nameless unfortunates or the Rubin Carters. who's your pick? and why?
