Will Bob Dylan Accept the Nobel Prize For Literature?
It is certainly a rare honor and privilege to win any Nobel Prize. I think that anyone who won it would be ecstatic and jump at the opportunity to publically acknowledge it and go to Stockholm to accept it. We all know that Bob Dylan has been uncommunicative and reclusive for many years. I read that the Nobel Prize committee tried unsuccessfully to contact him. There was a brief mention on Dylan's web site, but it was taken down.
The question is will he accept the award? The ceremony is scheduled for December 10 in Stockholm. The last concert on the 2016 leg of the Never Ending tour is November 23 in Fort Lauderdale, so there is absolutely no excuse for a no show on his part.
