I agree, congrats, Bob.
Whether his lyrics are really LITERATURE is another question, but he did write things that were (and still are) important to a lot of people.

I just posted this news on that OTHER guitar forum.

In essence I said, "Bob's been a HUGE influence on both aspiring musicians AND already established singer/songwriters. NOW all he needs is that LONG overdue Gershwin award."

Congradulations indeed! smile

Funny thing. As of today he wont answer or return notification calls from the nobel people. Seems like he doesnt want to accept the prize. Without getting political , im not sure i would either. Who am i kidding? Award me, notice me, LOVE ME.

There IS some money given with each Nobel prize as I understand. Not sure of how much( I once heard it was around $50,000), so it can't be MONEY that's holding up Bob.

Dylan is on tour right now and may be a little bit busy and hard to reach at the moment. I think he will accept the award before the award ceremony in December...

Oh yeah. I heard he was "wheezing it up" with those other fogeys in that "Desert Trip" thing. grin

A lotta "snow" at that event, if ya get my drift( no pun intent), and NOT the kind there USED to be a lot of at their concerts. wink

Dylan knows about the nobel prize. The nobel people have talked to his office people and left several messages. Plus dont you think everybody he bumps into says "hey, i heard about ......". If dylan is avoiding them he is doing it on purpose.

Dylan goes down in history as winning the award whether he accepts it or not. He may show up, if it interests him. They plan to party with or without him! I think he will show... cool

Uh, am I missing something here?

The "snow" I was referring to was the "snow on the roof" that most(or all) the performers and likely most of the people in the audience now have. grin

The OTHER "snow" I mentioned was something ELSE that used to permeate the scene at many concerts back in the "day". wink Nowadays, most of those folks probably snort METAMUCIL! grin

Well Cher just kicked off her Vegas tour yesterday at the age of 70 and was in the news...she has the advantage of coloring her hair. Not a lot of snow on her roof top, but she still looks good at her age. I give old Bob credit along with his "other fogeys" for still being out there on stage...I'll send old fogey credits/kudos out to the Stones for still being out there and rocking it too! Sorry about misinterpreting the "wheezing it up" concept... crazy

grin grin

Remember that video The Dead did for their song "Touch Of Grey" with the skeleton marionettes? My daughter, going about her housework with the TV on(sound muted) saw it in the corner of her eye and said, "I thought it was a STONES video!" grin

A lot of the old fogeys are still out on the stage because they don't know how to do anything ELSE, LOL.

A bit in today's paper quoting PAUL SIMON who said he might step back from touring, but has NO plans on retiring. So, there ya go.

A lot of old fogeys, looking for something to do or to augment their meager pensions find work in fast food joints.

Can you imagine pulling up to the drive-thru window at Mickey D's and having your Filet o' Fish handed to you by PAUL SIMON? Or BOB DYLAN or NEIL YOUNG or even BILL WYMAN, who turnes 80 today? grin
Whitefang (Happy birthday Bill!)

He said the honor has rendered him speechless. Hopefully he'll have a speech worked up by December.

My brother in law got off a good one on his grandson.

The kid called him an "old fart" in reply to something, and my brother in law said, "You say that like it's a BAD thing. But, a FRESH fart smells as bad as an OLD one, if not WORSE." grin

Just remember....the OLDER a fart gets, the less it STINKS. Remember THAT, you YOUNG FARTS! grin

<Update Bump:> https://www.yahoo.com/music/bob-dylan-not-attend-nobel-164023205.html <---looks like Bobby D's [too] busy to make the trip to accept his award. If he doesn't go over there and give a speech in 6 months, they may just take it away... cool

AIEeee!

Don't want to sound like a prig, but....

"TOO" is synomynous with "also" plus in some cases, "more".

"To" usually indicates a movement or direction, or also indicating the result of an action.

For example;

Bobby D's "too" busy.--

Joni Mitchell is one of those artrist's I don't listen "to".

THANK you, "Grammar Rock". wink

I know how to use "too" and "to" and put too and too together two, and I really don't need the Grammar Rock to point out the errors. If I pointed out your BS typos and errors, I wouldn't have time too get anything else posted... crazy

No, I understand....I too suffer from the "Grammar Nazi Syndrome". It's a curse, really. We have no choice but to point out errors, no matter how much we try to hold back. Please don't hate us for it!
