Happy 80th Birthday Bob and Congratulations Italy!

Yesterday, the legend Bob Dylan turned 80. I have always been a fan since my teens and his album “Hard Rain” was the first live album I ever owned. No one needs me to tell about his great legacy which has spanned more than 60 years! So, I hope you will all join me in wishing him a happy 80th birthday. Everyone has their favourite Bob Dylan song, I thought I’d share mine.

Last Saturday, Europe had its annual Eurovision song contest. While the UK entry failed to score any points, the contest was won by Italy represented by the heavy metal band Maneskin with their song “Zitti E Buoni.” I think it’s a cool song and don’t you love when a heavy metal band rubs it into face of the establishment? Well done Maneskin, metal rules in Europe for a year. Maybe they’ll play Bloodstock.

Of course, their victory was not without controversy. The lead singer was accused of snorting cocaine, something the band vehemently deny and are willing to undergo drug test. Needless to say, I read about this in the UK’s number one heavy metal hating newspaper, The Sun.

  1. I hadn’t caught up with Eurovision – I’m surprised a metal band even got to enter. My favourite Bob song is ‘Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands’.
