Dylan: “I’m in awe of
McCartney. He’s the only one I’m in awe of. He can do it all. And he’s
never let up…He’s just so damn effortless.” He can Play every Instrument and sing anything,, I wish he would stop, he makes me sick ( said as a joke)

McCartney: Paul McCartney is nice enough to take questions from some fans every now and then. His latest came from Guillem, who asked what Bob Dylan song he would cover in light of Dylan’s participation in The Art of McCartney. Dylan covered the Beatles’ “Things We Said Today” for the record.

“That’s a very difficult question to answer,” Sir Paul said. “As there are so many great songs. ‘Mr. Tambourine Man’ comes to mind because it’s something you could cover.” He continued, “Singing Dylan songs can be difficult because something like ‘Like A Rolling Stone’, it’s so Dylan that it would be hard to get the spirit that he puts on it. ‘A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall’ is another good one, you know. I’d put that on a list as well.”
