Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan just received the Pulitzer Prize for Literature. Well deserved for a life of poetry. That's the cherry on the top of his award littered life. Along with all of his music awards, Hall of Fame inductions, and top civilian awards like the Medal of Freedom, he is certainly getting the accolades he deserves.
His genius for "words and music" equals the best ever and only personal taste discerns a difference from other all time greats. Which begs the question why other great composers of "words and music" were not considered for the Pulitzer Prize Literature award.
A true musical troubadour of the 20th century and his generation. His music will be listened to for hundreds of years, and that is a good thing. If you are not familiar with his "words and music" read his words, listen to his music. 
The video below is Dylan live at the Newport Folk Festival in 1964 singing, "Mr. Tambourine Man."
