Robert Dylan, one helluva guy, probably
It turns out that Bob Dylan, along with being the most influential Caucasian musician since Elvis Presley, is a pretty nice fellow. In addition to all of the royalties for his forthcoming album going to charity to help feed the hungry in America, he has pledged future royalties from international sales to overseas charities. At least he mumbled something that sounded like a charitable pledge, but he may also have said that he's planning to buy Sub-Saharan Africa for personal use. Although I typically cringe at holiday music, Dylan's forthcoming album of yuletide tunes has me as excited and curious as, well, a kid on Christmas.
