Bob Dylan Considers Dylan Thomas Tribute
Bob Dylan is considering a tribute concert for Dylan Thomas, the famous welsh poet. The show would be in Wales celebrating the late poet’s 100th birthday.
Dylan Thomas is most famous for his works “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night” and Under Milk Wood. The poet died in New York in 1953.
Dylan, who was born Robert Allen Zimmerman, supposedly adopted his name after the Welsh poet. Geraint Davies, the West Swansea member of Parliament, stated the following:
“I have asked Bob Dylan whether he would be prepared to give a centenary concert in Swansea, in order that he could blend his music with Dylan Thomas’s poetry. Sony Music has come back and said that Mr. Dylan is thinking very positively about the idea,” (via Rolling Stone).
