MUSIC NEWS: THURSDAY, JUNE 15, 2017 DYLAN-NOBEL-PLAGIARISM Could Bob Dylan have used the modern equivalent of Cliff's Notes to accept one of the greatest writing awards? Writer Ben Greenman noted that Dylan appeared to have made up a quote from ``Moby Dick'' in Dylan's lecture submitted to the Swedish Academy as part of his acceptance of the Nobel Prize in literature. Slate writer Andrea Pitzer noted the line in question appeared similar to the SparkNotes summary of the book. Dylan said, ``Some men who receive injuries are led to God. Others are led to bitterness.'' SparkNotes has, ``Someone who trials have led him toward God rather than bitterness.'' Pitzer found 20 other similarities. None of the phrases were copied outright. Representatives for Dylan and the Nobel committee have not commented. --- ANITA-PALLENBERG-OBIT Keith Richards' ex, model-actress Anita Pallenberg, has died.
