Bob Dylan 2012

Yesterday was a memorable day for Bob Dylan because he was presented with the Medal of Freedom at the White House by President Barack Obama. He is among 13 recipients of the United States’ highest civilian award. To your left is the official picture of Obama presenting him with the prestigious award.

Barack Obama had this to say regarding Dylan’s impact on the world of music and social prowess.

“By the time he was 23, Bob’s voice, with its weight, its unique, gravelly power was redefining not just what music sounded like, but the message it carried and how it made people feel. Today, everybody from Bruce Springsteen to U2 owes Bob a debt of gratitude.”
