Robert Zimmerman, the alter ego of the curmudgeonly Sixties legend Bob Dylan is to record an album of cover versions.
The album is to feature the work of Simon Webbe and Duncan James from Blue, as well as singles released by members of Boyzone that were not Ronan Keating, the only man who makes Chris De Burgh look dangerous.
Dylan who gave the world such classics as Like a Rolling Stone, Don't think twice it's alright, All Along the Watchtower and Knockin' on Heaven's Door said: 'Bryan Ferry recently released an album of my songs, and I felt it was time that I gave something back. I have changed my mind so many times about it, but the album is nearly ready to be released. I was so much older then, I am younger than that now'.
