Bob Dylan has spoken out about his continuing adulation for Sir Paul McCartney.

Despite fierce criticism from some quarters about Macca’s solo work, Dylan completely believes that the former Beatle has still got it.

Dylan made the comments in a fresh interview with The Rolling Stone magazine, where he began by talking about George Harrison being overshadowed by McCartney and Lennon.
He said:  "If George had had his own group and was writing his own songs back then, he'd have been probably just as big as anybody."

The singer continued by speaking about the main songwriters in The Beatles: "They were fantastic singers. Lennon, to this day, it's hard to find a better singer than Lennon was, or than McCartney was and still is.

"I'm in awe of McCartney. He's about the only one that I am in awe of. He can do it all. And he's never let up... He's just so damn effortless."
