‘You Gave Me The Answer’ – Guillem from Catalonia asks…
Last month Paul dominated the desert with two star-studded performances at the 'Desert Trip' music festival in Indio, California.
Along with Paul, the stage was shared across the three nights by The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Roger Waters and The Who. Paul also treated the crowd to duets with Neil Young and Rihanna! We’re sure you’ll agree that a festival line up like this is a magical mix of rock 'n' roll royalty and one of those gigs people will be talking about for many years to come.
With Paul sharing the stage with such luminaries, we thought it would be an appropriate time to ask him the following question from Guillem in Catalonia:
Guillem asked: “Bob Dylan recently took part in a tribute album featuring your songs. If you were to cover one of Dylan’s songs, which would you choose?”
We caught up with Paul just before he headed out to 'Desert Trip' to find out:
“Thank you Guillem. That’s a very difficult question to answer, as there are so many great songs. I mean, ‘Mr. Tambourine Man’ just comes to mind because it’s something you could cover. Singing Dylan songs can be difficult because something like ‘Like A Rolling Stone’, it’s so Dylan that it would be hard to get the spirit that he puts on it. ‘A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall’ is another good one, you know. I’d put that on a list as well.”
We’re huge fans of Bob Dylan here at PaulMcCartney.com and would love to hear which of Dylan's songs you’d like to hear Paul cover and why! Let us know in the comments below…
