But of course, it's all about taste because they really don't have the same sound.

It was like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now.
Bowie, nothing can defeat the ****-superior.
Well, everyone, prepare to have your guts kicked out by folk singers...
David, no question.
Alice is a great guy and musician, though, it's just that I like David a lot more.
As to what songs Dylan liked/heard I'm not sure. I think it's safe to say the obvious ones such as I'm Eighteen, Billion Dollar Babies, Elected, etc. John Lennon was a big fan of Elected and told Alice that the only way the song could be any better is if Paul McCartney sang it. The interview I referenced with Dylan was in the 1978 Rolling Stone the text in full is as follows
RS: Now that we somehow got onto this subject, who else do you like right now? New Wave groups?
BD: No, I'm not interested in them. I think Alice Cooper is an overlooked songwriter. I like Ry Cooder. And I like Dave Mason's version of something which is on the jukebox right now.
So Dylan doesn't go into much detail. As I said I figure it's safe to assume the usual suspects though if we consider the year of the interview, 1978, it stands to reason that Dylan might be talking about songs off the From The Inside album since it was released that year and was an extremely well written album. Elton John's lyricist Bernie Taupin co-write a little bit on that album as he and Cooper were friends and drinking buddies and sobered up at the same time.
In any case it's a heckuva compliment and Alice considers it one of the top 3 compliments he's ever been given.

Cooper easily they has a lot of fun songs Bowe does nothing for me.
I like Alice Cooper. He's a really cool dude and Rocks with Live Shows!
But Bowie is, well... he's Bowie. You can't beat that.
Bowie vote for me.
