Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney to collaborate?

'It would be exciting,' says Dylan of link up with ex-Beatle

Bob Dylan has expressed an interest in collaborating with Paul McCartney.

Asked for his thoughts on the possibility of writing songs with the former Beatle, Dylan told Rolling Stone that he’d be up for working on a duel project.

“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.”

Since making the claim, McCartney‘s team have been trying to contact him to let him know about Dylan‘s thoughts.

“We heard the offer this morning and we’re trying to let Paul know about it,” McCartney‘s spokesperson told the Independent. “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.”

McCartney has previously hailed Dylan as a “genius”, saying that he would love to duet with him.
