Bob Dylan might play a special concert in Wales to mark the 100th birthday of Dylan Thomas, the Welsh poet who, legend has it, Dylan named himself after.

Geraint Davies, a member of Parliament for West Swansea, says he's  contacted Dylan's label about a performance in the city as part of a series of commemorative events next year. He told the British Parliament on Thursday, "Sony Music has come back and said that Mr. Dylan is thinking very positively about the idea."

Dylan Thomas was born in Swansea in 1914 and died in New York 1953 after a drinking binge.
