Six striking similarities Seasick Steve & Dylan

Are Seasick Steve and Bob Dylan similar? I guess your answer is no. Of course, they both use pseudonyms; both are 70 years old; have their roots in the blues. Performed together in Limerick (Ireland, July 2010). However, it really gets serious when you listen to Steve’s Burnin’ up (2011). The intro and the sound of the guitar, it could have been a song of Time out of mind (1997). Then finally, there is It’s all good. Steve wrote the song in 2007, two years earlier than Dylan. I would say the songs are strikingly similar. What do you think?
