Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Dylan inspired a generation.

If we all treated one person as a hero we would be fanatics. If Dylan used that position for personal aggrandizement - it would be a religion.

Dylan is above that and he still inspired enough of a generation to qualify for the Nobel Gong if only for that restraint alone.

Kris Kristoffeson has pedegree, a Rhodes Scholar, Merton College Oxford (English Literature). Some pretty emotive songs. But does he compare quite so?
