Love Bob Dylan, but for what reason should he get the Nobel prize for literature? I can name other singer songwriters as good as him: Paul Simon, Cat Stevens, Don McClean, and I'm sure I've missed some. Not dissing him, just saying he's one of the group.

The mountain of lyrics the man has created is reason enough, then on the other side of the coin you see his influence on the bryds, grateful dead, the band, rolling stones, beatles, and every folk act that ever tuned a guitar. His tunes are timeless and beyond man's coruption. I say bring it forth
