Dylan Does Think Twice about award.

Byline: JAMES WARD

BOB Dylan has finally addressed his Nobel Prize win after judges had a pop at him.

The 75-year-old musician is to be the recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature but had failed to speak publicly about the gong.

Now the Blowin In The Wind singer has spoken out about the honour - which will see him receive a cheque for [euro]830,000 from Swedish King Carl XVI Gustav - branding it as "amazing and incredible".

Asked if he would go to the ceremony by the Daily Telegraph, Dylan said: "Absolutely. If it's at all possible." The news of his acknowledgement comes after Swedish Academy member Per Wastberg voiced his frustration at Dylan's silence.

He said previously: "One can say that it is impolite and arrogant."
