The director of ‘Shine a Light’ had the light shined on him last night. Bob Dylan was on hand to honor legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. And though he sang “No one can sing the blues like blind Willie McTell,” it’s safe to say that in actuality, no one can sing the blues today like Dylan.

Bad Company singer Paul Rodgers can belt it out with the best of them. And given the opportunity, E Street Band guitarist Nils Lofgren certainly has the chops to play a lengthy, everybody-look-at-me solo if Bruce Springsteen really needed one.

Bob Dylan Charity Covers Album to Feature Kesha, Miley Cyrus

Amnesty International is one of the world’s foremost organizations dedicated to the preservation of human rights and the prevention of grave injustice.

So it only stands to reason that in order to celebrate Amnesty’s 50th anniversary, someone decided to put together an album of Bob Dylan covers — even if it’s a little odd that they invited pop stars like Kesha and Miley Cyrus to join the roster of artists lending their pipes to the rock legend’s classic songs.

Bob Dylan Performs In China

He doesn't show signs of slowing down  despite the rumors. I've always thought it very cool that people in foreign countries can enjoy our music too.
Bob Dylan played his first ever gig in China last night (April 6).

He was able to perform in the country’s capital city Beijing after agreeing to play a set that had been pre-approved by Chinese authorities.

The pre-approved setlist was agreed after an attempt by promoters to bring the folk legend to China failed in 2010. Permission was denied then by the country’s Culture Ministry, which must approve every concert that takes place in China.

The approval meant that Dylan could not play any material that the authorities deemed politically sensitive, such as the song ‘The Times They Are A-Changin’.
