Bob Dylan was recently nominated for France’s Légion d’Honneur. The legendary US singer had his first nomination reportedly thrown out by the deciding council over his marijuana use and his opposition to the Vietnam War.
The approval by the Légion d’Honneur council means France’s minister of culture may soon decorate Dylan with the honour, which is the country’s highest distinction. Previous performers awarded the honour include The Beatles‘ Paul McCartney and France’s Charles Aznavour.
Last year Dylan was honoured with the Medal Of Freedom by US president Barack Obama at the White House. The singer-songwriter, among 13 new recipients of the US’ highest civilian award, was paid a glowing tribute by Obama, who said there was “no bigger giant in the history of American music”.
