The charity provides money and services for music industry people in their time of need.

A transcript of the speech can be found via the link listed below.

But before you get to that, watch this, a recording of a different speech Bob Dylan gave, over 51 years ago, which someone had the good sense to synch with a slideshow of cleverly placed photos, and then put it on YouTube.

Dylan was 21 years old when he stepped on the stage at Town Hall in New York City, to pay tribute to Woody Guthrie, who was then in the Brooklyn State Hospital he would never leave.

If you have not heard it, do yourself the favor and “roll along with this thing.”
