Bravo, Mr Zimmerman!

In the last hour it has been announced that Bob Dylan has been awarded the Nobel prize in literature 2016 "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition".

Forty years ago when I was introduced to him at the Savoy Hotel while DA Pennebaker was filming Don't Look Back I had no idea that I was meeting a future Nobel laureate. But even back then I was mightily impressed, and convinced that indeed the times were a'changing!
