I dont know.
Axl was a more flamboyant frontman, but he could manage it because he didnt have to focus on playing guitar like Kurt did.
As a lyricist, I think they're about even and I enjoy both their styles equally. Cobain for his subtlety and weirdness, and Axl for the straight-forward emotional stuff...
As a singer, Axl is obviously more technically gifted but I prefer Cobain's singing by far. It just seems to have more substance to me...
And as songwriters? Again it's tough. Cobain was better with melodies, imo, but Axl had some amazing stuff. The thing is, most of it was co-written by Slash or other members of GNR, whereas Cobain mostly wrote all of Nirvana's classics by himself.

Finished my Dylan musical journey today by listening to Blood On The Tracks. It is just so fucking awesome. Question. I know I should know this but why is it called Blood On the Tracks?

It's dedicated to his great uncle, Elias Zimmerman, who was run over by a train in 1927.

I'm planning to get the bootleg volume six this weekend. Super excited, haven't gotten much new Dylan lately.

Random thought that is actually a not-so-subtle bump:

Has anyone ever developed a favorite out of World Gone Wrong and Good as I Been to You? I have been listened to these records relatively frequently since 2006 or so and I still would have to say that I like them both about the same. 8/10 albums.

Any list without Watchtower and Its Alright Ma in the top ten fails in my opinion.

Dylan's is defiantly better. I would also have to say his Mr. Tambourine Man is > than The Byrds.

Amen on the Tambourine Man. Only Dylan's version really resonates with me

Byrds version is great but nothing can impart the same air of mystique thats around Dylan's version.
