Such an amazing historic period to live in.
A great couple of years in particular.
Countries leave unions, more and more businessmen become presidents and people snub awards.
I discovered that Robert Zimmerman was probably not the friendliest musician the first time when I watched the documentary Bob Dylan: Don’t look back; then I had a further confirmation the time I went to see him live in Padua (Italy) in November 2013, when he came on stage and left without saying anything to his audience apart from introducing the band. An audience that, among other things, paid not- at-all cheap tickets (no standing ticket option, obviously) to assist to his totally unfriendly performance.
And now, once again, he shows such a lack of gratitude and, I believe, respect, by collecting the Nobel Price half year after he won it and after sending Patty Smith at the ceremony on his behalf.
People should be HONORED to receive such a privilege.
We create petitions for everything; If there was a petition to nullify the award, I would sign it right away.
And I would send Paul Simon to recuperate the prize. Wearing a hoodie.
