Bob Dylan has expressed an interest in collaborating with Sir Paul McCartney.
In issue 1078 of Rolling Stone magazine, Dylan says:
That would be exciting, to do something with Paul," Dylan said. "But, you know, your paths have to cross for something like that to make sense.
A spokesman for McCartney responded positively, saying: "I should think he would be very interested in hearing about it. As you can imagine, it would be a pretty major thing if it went ahead."
Dylan's 33rd studio album, Together Through Life, is reported to have sold 125,000 copies in its first week in America, and has topped the album charts on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as in Australia, Denmark, Holland, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, Germany, New Zealand, Austria and Ireland.
