Post subject:  Bob Dylan, Princess of Asturias Awards, 2007

Is there any footage or transcript of Dylan's acceptance speech for being awarded in 2007 in the category of arts? Leonard Cohen received an award for literature in 2011 and his intelligent, heartfelt speech is readily available online. Did Dylan even attend?

Thanks for any help or clarification, and apologies for finding the need to have to selfishly create an entire thread for my own personal search for the material.

Best,

mystic

He didn't attend. He sent a short note of thanks. That's all.

"I want to thank the king, the princep, the spanish people... etcetera, etcetera... Unfortunately I can't attend". (Please send me the money!). Bob Dylan :lol:

In 2007 the price was still named "Prince of Asturias", nor "princess".

If my memory serves me well... Around the years 2003-04 someone was collecting signatures for Bob's nomination to this price.

Right, of course he didn't attend. Not sure what I was expecting (rain).

Thanks Senyor!
