  • Great news and well deserved.

    Even if his later stuff has not be great (and he was terrible at the Hop Farm live) his body of work is staggeringly good.
  • Well done, Bobby, and richly deserved. A genius and one of my heroes.

  • Just saying, I can't believe he is still alive.

    Well done Bob, even though none of your songs rhyme
  • Great news, been a very big fan for well over 50 years, well done Bobby
  • can't think of another 'songwriter' who's won the nobel ..
    still Dylan was always as much poet and on the money social commentator as he was a songsmith .. well deserved accolade for a genius of our generation
  • What next for the Bobster, Sports Writers' Footballer of the Year?

  • He'll have to go some to react to his win in a better way than Doris Lessing did.

    A very welcome surprise, can only echo what those above say, very appropriate and well deserved.

    Probably my favourite artist if I had to pick only one.
  • I couldn't believe the whince on my face when I read that. He's a decent songwriter, but Nobel Prize, WTF? They really should sort themselves out that lot. Everyone with a Nobel, your work has just been downgraded. And as for poor souls like Lise Meitner, their little sub-atomic particles must be spinning in their graves.

    I've heard that Keith Richards is getting the Nobel Prize for Chemistry :wink:
  • His body of work is incredible. Well deserved.

    all a matter of opinion .. years ago I saw that Saul Bellow had won the nobel lit gong .. so .. went to the library and took out two of his 'best' .. Just NOT to my taste ..
    now Philip Roth ? .. would be a well deserved winner in my opinion .. BUT .. he's upset a lot of people and the brilliant 'Portnoy's Complaint' is regarded by many 'critics' as obscene and pornographic ...
    the most neglected literary genius of the 20/21st century is Stephen King .. if Bellow is worth one, he's worth ten

    Couldn't agree more about King
  • Well deserved for his poetry/songwriting.

    Apparently, he's been promised the Peace Prize if he stops playing the harmonica.

    Couldn't agree less about King. Saul Bellow is a fantastic writer - Herzog, Humboldt's Gift etc.

    Unlikely as it's a cover of an old song.

    Best thing he's done since Desire though.
  • Playing live in Luxembourg on Saturday night.
    Shall I go ?
    Never been a fan of his music, but as a music icon, its almost a case of saying 'I saw Bob Dylan live' ?

    He's got some nice Sinatra covers in his set at the moment.
