(Newser) – Safe to say that Joni Mitchell is not a big fan of Bob Dylan. In a long interview with the Los Angeles Times, she drops this bombshell on her fellow folk icon: "Bob is not authentic at all. He's a plagiarist, and his name and voice are fake. Everything about Bob is a deception. We are like night and day, he and I." That's all there is about Dylan, but she thinks Jimi Hendrix was the "sweetest guy." Read the full interview here.
