Not Ready to be a Bookend

Unless you've been going around with your head in a bag, you'll know that today is Bob Dylan's seventieth birthday. Gulp.

Glad you’re still with us, Bob and Happy Birthday. I do hope that after all this time you’ve come to terms with being Bob Dylan, which must be very difficult.
Nice audio slideshow here narrated by Michael Gray (his book Song & Dance Man is very good). He points out that Dylan is finding a new, young audience and ends with Make You Feel My Love, which has quite rightly been a smash hit for Adele.

Who’d like to add themselves or others to the list of fans? Here’s some for starters:
Christopher Ricks
Andrew Motion
David Cameron
The Dowager Duchess of Devonshire
