In two hundred years or so, a significant portion of the population could be related to him.

Apperently Screamin Jay put a spell on fifty plus women.

The Genghis Khan of blues singers?

He made fifty plus women scream thrice. One during orgasm, once during birth and once when he disappeared.

DEE DOOP A DEE, THE FUCK IS THIS BALLOON bitchin piano riff accompanied by roaring brass section

Condom game weak

That dude wouldn't know what a condom was if you made him write a song about it.

Damn, what a scumbag. I mean, he's probably a hero to some of you guys, but that's a very shitty thing to do. Imagine if anyone else did that shit..

You're thinking of Ronnie Hawkins. And while the Band did back Dylan for a while, after Hawkins left, the leader was either Levon Helm or Robbie Robertson (depending on whose biography you read).
