COMPETITION RESULTS - CD AUDIO-BOOK WINNER

The competition to suggest the most beguiling thing Bob Dylan could do on stage, aside from performing music, has now closed. There was a good response, and some resourceful answers  -  including:

"Recite some of the Brecht that was performed the night Suze, who was working on the production, had him over to drink it all in.  And dedicate his performance to her." (from GL, California USA)

"Treat the band by making them margaritas and serving them from a tray." (from GW, Scotland)

"I would absolutely be mesmerized by watching him paint. So, I would have to say that the most entrancing thing Dylan could do on stage is to paint a picture. I would love to be able to see him create in person." (from JR, Virginia USA)

"Bob reading out loud from a juicy selection of texts: The King James Bible; Rimbaud's Une Saison En Enfer; A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes; and some bits of Ricks and Gray. Especially if interspersed with comments - trying to differentiate between the straight and sardonic would be an enthralling challenge in itself, wouldn't it?" (from AE, Lima Peru)
and

"Really Sing." (from AM, England).

Thanks to these and many others  -  but the winning entry is this:

"Play chess on stage. Not so much for the moves, but for the body language as he concentrates."

So the modest prize, a signed copy of the Bob Dylan Encyclopedia Greatest Hits audio-book CD, will be on its way to Matt Tempest of London SE23, England. Congratulations to him and many thanks to everyone who took part.
