I have recently been thinking about what would happen if Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and Shane MacGowan appeared at an X-factor audition (putting aside, for a moment, the fact that Johnny Cash is in some heavenly choir and Shane MacGowan is otherwise detained enriching Dublin pub-owners).
Imagine the comments:
Johnny Cash: "Hopelessly flat" - Louis Walsh.
Bob Dylan: "Tuneless whining" - Simon Cowell.
Shane MacGowan: "Even attempting to be a pub singer is beyond you" - Simon Cowell.
