STOCKHOLM – Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature today “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition,” the Swedish Academy. At age 75, the legendary singer-songwriter, who won fame during the protest movements of the Sixties, still performs. His extraordinary career has been chronicled in films, books, and dozens of record albums.

Over the course of his career, which spans more than 50 years, Dylan has 11 Grammy Awards, as well as an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Obama in May 2012.

    You were wrong about one thing, Mr. Zimmerman… Some people do, indeed, need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows. We call them Republicans.

    His 30th anniversary show is still the best, especially sharing the stage with Petty, Harrison, Young, etc.
    Rock on Bob!

      One yr have passed since I decided to resign from my previous work and that decision was a lifechanger for me… I started working from comfort of my house, over a site I stumbled upon online, several hours /a day, and I profit now much more than i did on my last job… Last payment i got was for 9000 dollars… The best thing about it is the more time i got with my family…

    I currently profit in the range of six to eight thousand dollars /month working from home online. So if you are prepared to work basic online work for several hours every day from your living room and get reasonable payment for doing it… Then this work is for you…
