Bob Dylan Never Imagined Winning Nobel Prize For Literature (Video)

December 14, 2016
Bob Dylan did not attend the December 10 Nobel Prize ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden but he did provide a speech, which was read by the U.S. ambassador to Sweden, Azita Raji. In the speech, Dylan said: "Being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature is something I never could have imagined or seen coming."

Patti Smith performed Dylan's "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" at the ceremony and the video can be seen below. At one point, Smith messed up the lyrics and had to start over, noting that she was very nervous.
