Even Paul McCartney gets envious of other musicians.
The former Beatle spoke with U.K. magazine Uncut recently, and revealed just how much he admires Nobel-winning singer-songwriter Bob Dylan.
“Sometimes I wish I was a bit more like Bob Dylan…He’s legendary… and doesn’t give a s**t!” McCartney admitted, according to NME, adding, “I’m not like that.”
Talking about the making of his own new album McCartney III, the musician said, “I always like what [Dylan] does … His new album [Rough and Rowdy Ways]? I thought it was really good. He writes really well. I love his singing — he came through the standards albums like a total crooner. But, yeah, I like his new stuff.“
McCartney also praised Canadian singer Neil Young, telling the magazine, “People ask me who I’m a fan of and Bob Dylan and Neil Young always make the list.”
