Patti Smith Will Represent Bob Dylan at the Nobel Prize Ceremony
Again, I must express my disappointment that Bob Dylan will not appear in Stockholm to accept his Nobel Prize for literature. Patti Smith will appear and sing A Hard Rain is a-Gonna Fall. I also feel that this is a cold war song and is not appropriate for this occasion. I would have liked to have heard Blowin' in the Wind instead. I also read that Dylan sent an acceptance speech to be read.
