Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Dick, rather than constantly banging on about it, why don't you address your query to the Nobel Committee - after all they're the ones who gave him the award. You either like him enough to think the award was justified - or you don't. Better still, drop Bob a line and get him to explain all.

If I was a Dylan fan, which I'm not, I don't think I could be arsed to justify his lyrics. That's probably why the silence is deafening. I happen to be huge fan of Randy Newman's work. I like it very much, but I'm buggered if I'm going to waste time explaining it to people who don't like his work? Why on earth should I?
