Paul McCartney: “Sometimes I wish I was a bit more like Bob Dylan”

Thursday, November 12, 2020

Sir Paul McCartney has said he sometimes wishes he could “be more like Bob Dylan”.

The acclaimed Beatles musician said the American singer-songwriter’s latest album, Rough And Rowdy Ways, is “really good”.

The 78-year-old told Uncut magazine: “I always like what he does. Sometimes I wish I was a bit more like Bob. He’s legendary … and doesn’t give a shit! But I’m not like that.

“His new album? I thought it was really good. He writes really well. I love his singing – he came through the standards albums like a total crooner. But, yeah, I like his new stuff.

“People ask me who I’m a fan of and Bob Dylan and Neil Young always make the list.”

Dylan scored his ninth number one album with Rough And Rowdy Ways – breaking two chart records in the process.
