Sir Paul McCartney has said that he is unlikely to collaborate with Bob Dylan, despite rumours circulating in the press recently.

McCartney says he’s “always admired” Dylan as a “poet and writer” but believes that the two legends are unlikely to do anything about it.

In an interview with The Telegraph on Saturday (June 27) McCartney reveals that the rumours have become a bit of a family joke.

Talking about the projected collaboration, Paul says that it’s only “a newspaper thing. He [Dylan] just said some very complimentary things about me in some interviews, and I love him. He’s a great poet and writer so I’ve always admired him. I don’t rule it out. But we’re not the kind of people who would ring each other up.”

Meanwhile, former Beatle Macca made a surprise appearance onstage with another Uncut legend Neil Young at the Hard Rock Calling festival in Hyde Park on Saturday (June 27). The pair shared vocals for Neil’s cover of “A Day In The Life” for Young’s final European tour show.
