Bob Dylan Breathes Life into Hank Williams Lost Notebook

See the September 23, 2011 New York Times, Arts Beat column titled, "Popcast: Opening the 'Lost Notebooks' of Hank Williams."

Apparently, Bob Dylan is a huge fan of Hank Williams.  He is running a project to use contemporary pop musicians to write melodies and perform songs for which Hank Williams had written the lyrics but had not yet written the melody.

The artist, as he enters eighth decade of life, has been described aptly as “the Methuselah of righteous cool” but he has been much more, a master of disdain now, a bard of decay only to surprise as a voice of longing for romance later. The elderly statesman of music has collided with forms ranging from folk to glam rock and many in between and has left them richer, altered forever.
