Will he? Won't he?
Similar talks kept doing the rounds on the internet after Bob Dylan snubbed an acceptance ceremony in December for his Nobel Prize last year. Patti Smith accepted the award on his behalf, and read out a beautiful acceptance speech penned by Bob Dylan.
Now, he is performing at Stockholm this weekend. And he will physically accept the award from the Nobel Prize academy. Professor Sara Danius, permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy said, "The Swedish Academy is very much looking forward to the weekend and will show up at one of the performances." She added, "Please note that no Nobel Lecture will be held. The Academy has reason to believe that a taped version will be sent at a later point".
Also, he will be the only songwriter to receive this accolade apart from our very own Rabindranath Tagore.
