Imelda May has picked up more than a few fans over the course of her career, with everyone from Robert Plant to Jeff Beck to Lou Reed singing her praises.

Now, the Dubliner also has a fan in Bob Dylan.

The Nobel laureate participated in a Q&A about his new album 'Triplicate', when he was quizzed on his favourite contemporary artists - and some more surprising than others.

He said: "Iggy Pop’s ‘Après’, that’s a good record. Imelda May, I like her. Valerie June, The Stereophonics.”

He added: “I like Willie Nelson and Norah Jones’ album with Wynton Marsalis, the Ray Charles tribute record. I liked Amy Winehouse’s last record", adding that Winehouse was "the last real individualist around."

So there you have it, folks - Bob Dylan. A man of many tastes.
