Bob Dylan may have won almost universal acclaim for his album of Frank Sinatra covers, 'Shadows in the Night', released in 2015 - but one person who wasn't too impressed was Roger Waters.
The Pink Floyd frontman, who is preparing the release of his first solo album in 25 years, told Billboard that he thought Dylan's decision to release a covers album was 'weird'.
Speaking in the context of his own politically-themed material, he took a potshot at the recent Nobel laureate, saying "I haven’t got time to do an album of Frank Sinatra covers.”
He added: "Bob Dylan, for instance, which is weird. You go, “Fuck me Bob, what is wrong with you? Why would you do that?” I guess it’s because he can’t bear the thought of not being on the road and he couldn’t think of anything else to do. I can’t believe he really has an affinity for all that schlock. But maybe he does.”
Water releases 'Is This The Life We Really Want?', the follow-up to 1992's 'Amused to Death', tomorrow.
