NEW YORK CITY - The legendary 60's folk music icon Bob Dylan has just announced that he will be recording an album with legendary 60's rock and roll icon band The Rolling Stones.
Dylan spoke with Calcutta Cotton of Music Moments Magazine and said that he and the Stones had been talking about getting together to record an album for the past three years.
Dylan, who is the musical director on Regis Philbin and Larry King's The Viagra View talk show, said that he received a phone call from Mick Jagger after he had finished with a live telecast.
Jagger told him that he was in Chicago and wanted to meet with him about the album proposal.
The next day the two met at The Inebriated Kangaroo Lounge in New York City and worked out the details over a bunch of Singapore Slings.
Jagger and Dylan decided that they wanted the album to be a unique blend of Dylan's hits and Rolling Stones' hits.
They called Keith Richards, who was visiting relatives in Wolverhampton, England and he flew out to New York the next day.
All three got together at Dylan's luxuriously exquisite Manhattan apartment and worked out the songs.
The three said that they'll be going into the recording studio the first week of August to record the album.
Cotton and Music Moments Magazine were the first to be given information regarding the songs that will be included in the cutting edge album.
The album will be titled...
