Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
'A Dylan fan started this thread for chrissake. He's a luvly feller but it's a good bet that he knew what he was starting. He's been conspicuous by his absence as it happens, and I don't blame him!'

I wouldn't describe myself first and foremost as a Dylan fan. A one time fan perhaps but my teens and twenties are well behind me by now and I haven't exactly followed Dylan's progress since closely.

Yes, I was well aware mentioning the awarding of the Nobel would get the detractors out. And I don't see much point in joining the fray. As I said, I think the award is well deserved, for the reasons stated by the awarding committee. But feel free to disagree, no problem.
