Bob Dylan Wins 2016 Nobel Prize For Literature
Legendary musician Bob Dylan has won the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature.
The 'Mr Tambourine Man' singer was awarded the accolade "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition," BBC News reports.
The 75-year-old was born Robert Allen Zimmerman, but created the stage name Bob Dylan after poet Dylan Thomas.
The folk singer's legendary career has spanned five decades, with his most notable work coming in the 1960s, but he continues to influence people to this day.
A very well deserved reward for all of his work. Congratulations, Bob.
