Here's a little article I came across, wouldn't this be awesome?!?

If pulling down the No. 1 slot in both the U.K. and U.S. album charts wasn't enough this week, Bob Dylan also caused a stir by revealing his desire to team up with Paul McCartney for an upcoming studio project.

Dylan, who reportedly sold 125,000 copies of his 33rd studio offering, 'Together Through Life,' said he'd definitely be up for a collaborative session with Macca. "That would be exciting, to do something with Paul," Dylan told Rolling Stone. "But, you know, your paths have to cross for something like that to make sense."

Sir Paul's spokesman responded to Dylan's suggestion by 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 is no stranger to collaborations, having previously recorded with the Grateful Dead and participated in supergroup the Traveling Wilburys, which featured McCartney's late Beatles bandmate George Harrison, plus Tom PettyJeff Lynne andRoy Orbison. His latest follows the same trajectory as its predecessor, 2006's 'Modern Times', which also peaked at No. 1. Prior to that feat, the iconic singer-songwriter had gone 30 years in the States, since the release of 'Desire' in 1976, without a chart topper. 


P.S. I updated the profile page, take a looksie!

Profile page = gorgeous! :D

And OMG I'd die of delight if Dylan and Macca teamed up for an album (or even just a song!). I squealed with fangirly glee when I first read this in RS a couple of weeks ago. Glad to hear that at least Paul's spokesman is aware of it, lol!

bob is coming to my town in October *sqeeeel* - dreaming of him covering a McCartney song (true silliness, i know), but i'm giddy over even the thought of them actually doing something together. not quite as cool, but i do love the traveling wilbury's work.
