McCartney or Dylan?

So who is better Bob Dylan or Paul McCartney? Penn Jillette gives you the straight dope...



Thanks to Mr. Funk for sharing this video with me.

sounds like this guy has got a wood for Dylan. Sorry but Paul is a Beatle. Nuff said. Guy is the greatest Melody Maker and has probably the most distinctive voice in Rock and Roll. Bob's a good songwriter and all, but please, you will never make a room go crazy like "She Loves You" or countless other Beatles smash hits.
The Beatles also were more creative songwriters in minor chords and catchier hooks. Dylan was more of a lyricist. Both great, but to compare them is absurd. Paul is a natural, just listen to them both sing.

I think he was trying to compare the paths they took in live performances, not as artist vs artist. While McCartney has a more structured show that is the same from the first show of the tour to the last, Dylans style is more improvisational and in the moment. I too like Beatles more but would only pay for that ticket maybe once. humble opinion
