Bob Dylan: Nobel Prize in Literature

Without question, Bob Dylan deserves this recognition.

I can't count how many times I've seen Bob Dylan in concert-- small venues, large venues, indoor venues, outdoor venues.

Each was a unique experience. Some I remember better than others.

I've read books about him. I've seen the documentaries.

However, personally, I don't like to dissect his work and turn it into an intellectual exercise. I prefer to simply enjoy.


The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2016 is awarded to Bob Dylan

"for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition".

I was really little when I got my first exposure to Bob Dylan. It was in Catholic grade school. The nuns taught us this song and we sang it at Mass.

So groovy.

Congratulations, Bob Dylan.
