Paul McCartney Sends A Public Message To Bob Dylan

Paul McCartney recently responded to 23 fan questions taken from his official fan group on Facebook, where he delivered a public note to Bob Dylan in one of his answers.

A fan named Vonnie asked the Beatles icon:

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

The singer replied, sending a message to Dylan:

“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

In the Q&A session, McCartney also talked about his ‘Got Back’ tour, which started in April 2022 and continued in 2023. When asked to discuss his highlight of 2023, the musician said:

“The ‘Got Back’ tour!”

Another fan asked Paul to name the song he enjoys performing the most during his ‘Got Back’ tour. To which the rocker responded:

“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’

McCartney has also been working on a musical adaptation of the film ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ for some time. He is collaborating with Lee Hall of ‘Billy Elliot: The Musical’ and producer Bill Kenwright. McCartney has already created over 10 songs for the musical.

Another question asked the singer if the public would ever have the chance to listen to the songs he composed for ‘It’s A Wonderful Life.’ He replied 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.”

Paul also noted the following in a 2019 statement addressing the starting point of the musical:

“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.”

Although they haven’t worked together, Dylan expressed admiration for McCartney in a 2007 Rolling Stone interview. Dylan praised Paul’s melodic talent, rhythm, instrumental skills, and vocal range, noting his effortless ability in music. Back in 1966, McCartney was also candid about being a fan of Dylan, particularly praising his poetic use of words in lyrics.
