It's a bit late but you might know that Bob Dylan was awarded the swedish nobel prize in literature 2016.

Prize motivation: "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition"

What's your thoughts on this?

(I ask because BR covered the song It's All Over Now, Baby Blue)
did greasy fingers grasp for pieces of your mind?

It was the right choice. There are other song writers who might even deserve it more than him in terms of pure lyricism that has great literary merit, but Dylan's songs had a massive impact on not just music but the world in general. Everybody knows he's a poet first and foremost - he just uses music to express that poetry.

Nothing can bring a person into adulthood except their own sense of self and the personal responsibility that accompanies that.

Nobels are just less overyped than 70's brit so called rock bands. Both should disappear.

Olympics too, for that matter.
