I love the fact that Rolling Stone is trotting out all the stars in this interview series for their 40th anniversary. It’s almost as if we get to see some of these artists speak a little more candidly than usual. We catch them talking about current music, but more often than not they are reminiscing at best. Dylan dallops the praise out for Paul McCartney in his round of interviews. We certainly don’t disagree with him. In our opinion Paul still, indeed, does have it.
His newest material proves that he still is at the top of his game. So, do you guys agree with Bob? Does McCartney still have it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
What are your favorite, or most annoying McCartney moments of recent memory. Personally, since Flaming Pie, we think he’s been on nothing but a tear this late in his astounding career.
Here’s what we’ve read.
Bob Dylan has spoken out about his continuing adulation for Sir Paul McCartney.
Despite fierce criticism from some quarters about Macca’s solo work, Dylan completely believes that the former Beatle has still got it.
Dylan made the comments in a fresh interview with The Rolling Stone magazine, where he began by talking about George Harrison being overshadowed by McCartney and Lennon.
He said: “If George had had his own group and was writing his own songs back then, he’d have been probably just as big as anybody.”
The singer continued by speaking about the main songwriters in The Beatles: “They were fantastic singers. Lennon, to this day, it’s hard to find a better singer than Lennon was, or than McCartney was and still is.
“I’m in awe of McCartney. He’s about the only one that I am in awe of. He can do it all. And he’s never let up… He’s just so damn effortless.”
