LOL!!!!!

Anyway...I've listened to numerous interviews with Bob (as I'm sure you all
have) and never detected any lisp. Just for fun, imagine someone sining Sub.
Himesick Blues thgrough a heavy lisp...

here's the answer: I noticed it was more pronounced on Time Out of Mind. It's
not a lisp. It's the air between his teeth from receding gums. He's not losing
his teeth, just getting a little too much wind with the words. It's most
noticeable on Trying to Get to Heaven Before They Close The Door.

I've read a lot of analysis about Bob Dylan's gum disease, but I've
never heard it said so cogently before

You silly woman. EVERYONE knows that Bob NEVER had his TEETH FIXED. You
should be banished from this newsgroup.

What if it was an excess of saliva or maybe he was very fond of lozengers at
the time?

On the song Tupelo Honey Van Morrison sounds like he has a lisp especially on the word she.

Maybe he was a gay back then and got normal when he converted to Christianity and prayed away the gay.
