In May 1997, Dylan was diagnosed with a potentially fatal and rare heart infection. He was hospitalized after suffering chest pains but eventually recovered.

Made a commander of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government in 1988.

"The saddest thing about songwriting is when you get something really good and you put it down for a while, and you take for granted that you'll be able to get back to it with whatever inspired you do it in the first place--well, whatever inspired you to do it in the first place is never there anymore, So then you've got to consciously stir up the inspiration to figure what it was about. Usually you get one good part and one not-so-good part, and the not-soo-good part wipes out the good part." --Dylan to Bill Flanaghan, March 1985, included in Flanaghan's book "Written In My Soul"

In June 2004, Dylan received an honorary doctor of music degree from Scotland's oldest university St. Andrews.
