Congratulations Bob Dylan

People today are still living off the table scraps of the sixties. They are still being passed around—the music and the ideas.
Bob Dylan, singer, songwriter

Bob Dylan has been awarded a special music citation from the Pulitzer Prize committee for his "profound impact on popular music and American culture."

A well deserved honor.

"Sick man lookin' for the doctor's cure
Lookin' at his hands for the lines that were
And into every masterpiece of literature
For dignity"
- B. Dylan

Hi Phx, I am embarrassed to say that I had not heard this song before. But, I am about to purchase it from iTunes. Thanks

I was totally taken aback by this announcement regarding Dylan and Pulitzer. But certainly well deserved.

I don't know if you were reporting on the news or are actually a fan, but if you are then I thought I'd introduce you to my new novel, BLOOD ON THE TRACKS, which I think you'd enjoy.

It's a murder-mystery. But not just any rock superstar is knocking on heaven's door. The murdered rock legend is none other than Bob Dorian, an enigmatic, obtuse, inscrutable, well, you get the picture...

Suspects? Tons of them. The only problem is they're all characters in Bob's songs.

You can get a copy on Amazon.com or go "behind the tracks" at www.bloodonthetracksnovel.com to learn more about the book.
