Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Just heard on a BBC R4 prog about Sam Cooke. He apparently said he was impressed with "Blowin in the Wind" and said "if a white man can write a song like that, it is about time a black man wrote such a song"
The result? "the River" ("a Change Gonna Come")

I calls that one helluva inspiration.
