Dylan Snubs Uk Music Hall Of Fame

Rock legend BOB DYLAN infuriated organisers of Wednesday's (16NOV05) UK Music Hall Of Fame by snubbing the prestigious honour by refusing to turn up or make a video acceptance speech.

The LIKE A ROLLING STONE hitmaker refused to appear at the second annual event, despite organisers deliberately scheduling the ceremony to coincide with Dylan's UK tour.

Instead, a vague acquaintance of the singer, NATURAL BORN KILLERS actor WOODY HARRELSON, accepted the award on Dylan's behalf.

An organiser says, "We made every effort to get him to accept it in person or with a video message, but he obviously prefers to remain as enigmatic as ever."

THE WHO, PINK FLOYD, BLACK SABBATH, NEW ORDER, JIMI HENDRIX, JOY DIVISION, THE KINKS, ARETHA FRANKLIN and late DJ JOHN PEEL were also honoured at the ceremony.

It was quite funny when it was announced thatDylan was up in Manchester doing a gig when hewasn't there and there was no video message from him.I think he was right-apart from The Kinks,it wasn't that interesting and turned into an Oz-fest.Is Ozzy Osbourne as relevent as Jimi Hendrix or Bob Dylan, I don't think so. And why have The Doors been ignored?
