EARLIER MusiCares has found an honoree and he’s a great choice: Bob Dylan. It’s about time, too. Dylan is 10 time Grammy winner and poet laureate of a generation. He’s also a genius. His very cover-able catalog includes “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “Mr. Tambourine Man,” “Lay Lady Lay,” “The Mighty Quinn,” “Forever Young,” “Tangled Up in Blue,” “Shelter from the Storm,” “Make You Feel My Love,” and dozens of others. Let’s hope the concert organizers get some of the people who had hits with Dylan songs to come in and do ’em, including Garth Brooks and Joan Baez, as well as Robbie Robertson from The Band. Stevie Wonder had a major hit with “Blowin’ in the Wind” by the way. Rod Stewart had one with “Forever Young.” The MusiCares Person of the Year dinner is in February 2015.
