October 13 — TOMBSTONE BLUES, Bob Dylan (1965)

img_1228Bob Dylan today was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, joining the ranks of T.S. Eliot, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Toni Morrison. He’s the first musician to win, and is “the most radical choice” yet in the 100-plus years of the esteemed academy, said the New York Times. To some among the stuffy literature crowd, it was an odd choice. To others, it was a sign from above. “Holy mother of God,” tweeted Rosanne Cash. “Bob Dylan wins the Nobel Prize.” If ever a musician deserved it, it’s Bob Dylan.
