Rather than performing, Bob Dylan appeared on stage with a pile of loose papers saying “I’m going to read some of this,” in a 30-minute acceptance speech for the MusiCares 2015 Person Of The Year a charity affiliated with the Grammys. His commentary ranged from “Very few rock ‘n’ roll bands today play with rhythm; they don’t know what it is” to the singing of the national anthem (“You take a one-syllable word and make it last for 15 minutes?”). His final words were “I’m going to get out of here now. I’m going to put an egg in my shoe and beat it. I probably left out a lot of people and said too much about some. But that’s OK. Like the spiritual song, ‘I’m still just crossing over Jordan too.’ Let’s hope we meet again sometime. And we will, if like Hank Williams said, “the good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise.”
