(Classic Rock) The Swedish Academy have given up trying to reach Bob Dylan after they awarded him the Nobel Prize For Literature last week. He has responded with silence since the news broke - and he made no mention of the accolade at his show in Las Vegas that night either.

Last Thursday, the 75-year-old became the first songwriter in history to be named a recipient of the award by the Nobel committee "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition."

The academy's permanent secretary Sara Danius says: "Right now we are doing nothing. I have called and sent emails to his closest collaborator and received very friendly replies. For now, that is certainly enough." Read more here.
