US artist Bob Dylan, who has won the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature, barely spoke to the gathering of people on Thursday night about the coveted award amid his first public performance since the declaration. While the crowd cheered on for more melodies amid Bob's performance, the 75-year-old legend just gave a brief reprise, finishing his set with a melancholy yet energetic front of Frank Sinatra's Why attempt to change me now.
Bob found fame when his tunes – particularly The Times They Are A-Changin – got to be songs of devotion in the 1960s, typifying the air of challenge and change that encompassed the social liberties development and in addition the battle to end the war in Vietnam.
Over the traverse of his 50-year vocation, Bob has sold more than 100 million records, and was even given an extraordinary reference by the Pulitzer Prize Committee in 2008, theguardian.com. said.
He is the first artist ever to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, and the primary American to get the prize since writer Toni Morrison, writer of the books Jazz, Song of Solomon, and Beloved, who won in 1993.
