Bob Dylan has been a semi-permanent fixture on the road for so long that he really has to do something special to remind us that he's still on tour -- and that's exactly what he's done with his just-announced 'Americanarama Festival of Music.'
In mid-1966, following a whirlwind couple of years in which he became a legend and a reluctant star, Bob Dylan withdrew from the public eye. And he found a reason that was fitting of his testy image at the time: He claimed he was in a motorcycle accident, which fans still dispute to this day. Was it real? Or was it staged so that the increasingly agitated and reclusive singer-songwriter could get away from it all for a while and clear his head?
Coming to select theaters on Dec. 21 is 'Not Fade Away,' a story about New Jersey teenagers who, inspired by seeing the Rolling Stones on television in 1964, form a band. The film, which was written and directed by 'Sopranos' creator David Chase, features a soundtrack comprised of many rock and rhythm-and-blues classics, and was put together by Steven Van Zandt. The soundtrack will be available on Dec. 18.

The Recording Academy made the announcement today (Nov. 21).
