Dark Eyes: Dylan Honored at White

Politico:

Bob Dylan sported shades at the White House on Tuesday.

The singer wore aviator sunglasses to accept the Medal of Freedom from President Obama who praised him for his career accomplishments.

"There is not a bigger giant in the history of American music," Obama said, adding that he’s "a really big fan" of Dylan.

‘I remember in college, listening to Bob Dylan and my world opening up,’ the president said before presenting Dylan with the award, which is considered the nation’s highest civilian honor.

Other medal recipients included novelist Toni Morrison, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and astronaut John Glenn
