Paul McCartney Sends A Public Message To Bob Dylan

In a recent Facebook fan group Q&A, Paul McCartney answered 23 questions from fans. In one of his responses, he publicly thanked Bob Dylan.

Vonnie, a fan, questioned the Beatles icon:

“Is there anyone else you would like to sing a duet with?”

In response, the singer sent Dylan the following message:

“Bob Dylan keeps coming up in my mind, but I don’t know if we’ll ever get round to it.”

McCartney Reflects On The ‘Got Back’ Tour

McCartney also discussed his “Got Back” tour, which began in April 2022 and ran through 2023, during the Q&A period. When asked what his favorite thing from 2023 was, the performer replied:

“The ‘Got Back’ tour!”

Paul was asked by a fan which song from his “Got Back” tour he most loves playing. In response, the rocker said:

“It varies. Probably ‘Hey Jude,’ just to see all those thousands of people singing in harmony with each other.”

Paul’s Musical Adaptation Of ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’

Additionally, McCartney has been working on a musical version of the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” for a while. He is working with producer Bill Kenwright and Lee Hall from “Billy Elliot: The Musical.” For the show, McCartney has already written more than ten songs.

The singer was also questioned if the songs he wrote for “It’s A Wonderful Life” will ever be available for public listening. He answered by saying:

“I hope so, yeah! Musicals are difficult things to put together, but I think it may be shaping up at last. So, hopefully, you’ll get to hear the songs.”

“Writing a musical is not something that had ever really appealed to me. But Bill and I met up with Lee Hall and had a chat, and I found myself thinking this could be interesting and fun.”

In a 2007 Rolling Stone interview, Dylan professed affection for McCartney even though they haven’t collaborated. Noting Paul’s seamless abilities in music, Dylan lauded his melodic genius, rhythm, instrumental talents, and vocal range. McCartney was open about his admiration for Dylan back in 1966, especially when it came to his appreciation of the poet’s use of language in his poems.
