Positively Bob Dylan

Fine Bob Dylan stuff. Since 1997.

Pulitzer Prize 2008: Special Citation to Bob Dylan

For his "profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power" Bob Dylan received a Special Citation at the Pulitzer Prizes 2008 on Monday. It was the first time the Pulitzer Prize Board awarded an art form once dismissed as subversive. So the times have changed again and Rock ’n Roll has finally broken through the Pulitzer wall to join the exclusive club of icons in literature, journalism, classic music, and jazz. Congratulations, you got a good deal!

By the way: The photo shows Jesse Dylan, who accepted the 2008 Pulitzer Prize Special Citation from Richard Oppel, co-chair of The Pulitzer Prize Board, on behalf of his father Bob.
