London, April 24(ANI): Singer Joni Mitchell has called legendary folk singer Bob Dylan a “plagiarist” and “fake”.

The Canadian musician, whose real name is Roberta Joan Anderson, made the comment when an interviewer for Los Angeles Times pointed out that both she and Dylan, who was born Bobby Zimmerman, had changed their names.

“Bob is not authentic at all. He’s a plagiarist, and his name and voice are fake,” the Telegraph quoted her as saying.

She added: “Everything about Bob is a deception. We are like night and day, he and I.”

In 2006, the ‘Lay Lady Lay’ hitmaker was accused of borrowing lyrics from the writing of the Confederacy poet Henry Timrod for his album ‘Modern Times’.

He had made no acknowledgement to Timrod in the album’s sleeve notes. (ANI)
