Bob Dylan Finally Breaks Silence About Nobel Prize Win

Bob Dylan

(Classic Rock) Bob Dylan has broken his silence after he was awarded the Nobel Prize For Literature. Two weeks ago, 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."

But Dylan has been silent since the announcement, despite the Swedish Academy reaching out to him. This led Academy member Per Wastberg to call the singer-songwriter "impolite and arrogant."

But Dylan has now responded, calling the Academy's permanent secretary Sara Danius to officially accept the honor. He says: "If I accept the prize? Of course. The news about the Nobel Prize left me speechless. I appreciate the honor so much."

The Academy say it has yet to be decided if Dylan will attend the ceremony in Stockholm on December 10. However, when asked by The Telegraph if he plans to attend the ceremony, Dylan reports: "Absolutely - if it's at all possible." Read more here.
