Bobbing and Weaving

Major tribute to Dylan last night in L.A. (imagine it will appear on cable soon) and amazing recounting of his 30-minute speech here, in which he separates famed songwriters who liked him and those who did not (and his own views of them).  Much more from the speech here as he hails others who have covered his songs--Hendrix, Johnny Cash, Nina Simone, a touching thank you to Joan Baez, and more.  And another lengthy account here with attacks and critics.  Photos here. UPDATEFull transcript of his remarks finally here. Also here from a Dylan fan site were the songs and artists who performed:
