Quantcast
Dylan MusiCares Person of the Year

BOB’S BACK PAGES: For the first half century of his career, the idea of Bob Dylan agreeing to be honored for anything was inconceivable—but the times they have a-changed. On 2/6, two days before the Grammys, the Bard will be feted as the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year, making him the 25th individual to be so honored. Confirmed performers include Beck, the Black Keys, Norah Jones, Tom Jones, Los Lobos, John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, Eddie Vedder, Jack White, John Doe, Neil Young and Crosby, Stills & Nash, with Don Was serving as musical director. The occasion warranted a Neil Portnow quote, and he delivered, noting that Dylan’s “body of creative work has contributed to America's culture, as well as that of the entire world, in genuinely deep and lasting ways. And while I have your attention, let me also say I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes.” (9/23a)
