Bob Dylan hasn’t been on “Late Show” in 22 years.
Bob Dylan Honored as MusiCares Person of the Year, to Receive Tribute from Jack White, Neil Young, More
Fifty-some years into his career, Bob Dylan is still racking up awards.
Hank Williams, Neil Young, Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Neville and Chic are also among the artists who will have their songs and albums inducted into the 2015 GRAMMY Hall of Fame.
Previously honored by Musicares have been Tony Bennett, Bono, Natalie Cole, Phil Collins, Neil Diamond and Aretha Franklin.
Like Elvis’ no-hips-allowed appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” or the Beatles’ arrival in America, or Woodstock, it is considered one of the milestone moments in rock history: Bob Dylan going electric at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival.
The theme of this year’s nominations could be taken in a number of ways, but when you look at the contenders up for all-powerful Album of the Year category, one thing is certain: it’s the year of the underdogs and the newcomers.
