Posted on 05/27/2009 1:10:45 PM PDT by a fool in paradise
Just weeks after Bob Dylan announced he wanted to collaborate with fellow legend Sir Paul McCartney, moves are afoot to bring the two superstars together.
Industry insiders say Macca is set to team up with Dylan in California over the summer, where the pair are expected to work on new songs as a duo.
The news comes after Dylan declared this month that he found the idea of working with the former Beatle exciting.
McCartneys spokesman then declared their man would be very interested in a collaboration.
Paul has a home in California not too far from Bobs so the idea is for the two to meet when Paul is in California over the summer, says a well-placed mole.
Theyll obviously want to work in privacy and its felt one of their homes will be the best bet.
Both men have enjoyed critical and commercial success again of late.
Dylan recently topped the charts with his album Together Through Life, while McCartneys last release under his musical ater-ego The Fireman was also well-received.
Getting these two together for any length of time is difficult schedule-wise but they both want this to work out, were told. The music that comes out of this will be fascinating to hear.
Will it be Dylan-McCartney or McCartney-Dylan?
They’ll have to wait until this is done.
It’ll be Maccazimm!
It will be fascinating to hear, but it will also likely suck.

Dylan is terrible live. I saw his last tour and his voice is unrecognizable, all he did was stand behind his keyboards and growl. A huge disappointment-even though his band is tight, he really needs to stop touring.

Ive seen Mellencamp live with his band twice and they kick ass. Willie and Bob are both has beens to me. Bob, Pick up the acoustic for a couple of songs. Willie, go back to your old singing style if you can. And you need new blood in you band. I love all 3 artists, but live in 2009, my moneys on John.
Wasn’t Dylan the guy with the outside toilet problem and the neighbors using huge fans?
Umm, McCarney’s place. Definitely.
I refuse to support outspoken lib performers.
Couldn’t be any worse than Macca and Michael Jackson, Oy!
I refuse to support outspoken lib performers. .......
Come on Mellencamp is a populist man of the people same as Bruce. Blood on the Scarecrow was a good album 20 years ago
