Paul McCartney has 29 #1 hits to his name. Bob Dylan is credited for bringing the electric guitar to folk music and ushering in the 1960s counter-culture. McCartney, 74, and Dylan, 75, are both still performing. Most would argue McCartney has kept his form and voice over the years. But Dylan was never known for his singing voice, but rather his poetic lyrics and musical influence. They are both legends, but if you had to pick one, where would you stand? Vote below.

Paul McCartney's music spans a range of emotions. From the young and hopeful, to the sad and despondent and back again. He helped usher in a new era of rock and roll. 

The Beatles have influenced everyone and Paul is considered one of the two major superstars behind the group. When you listen to him sing, you have to think .... this guy needed to be heard.

Dylan may be the underdog in this fight. But that's only because Dylan didn't have everything Paul had going for him. He isn't as good looking or charming as Paul. He didn't have three friends to help explode onto the music scene (Paul never would have made it without the Beatles) and yet here we are half a century later still trying to absorb everything Dylan wrote in his music. 

The guy is next level. Songs like "Mr. Tamborine Man," "Like a Rolling Stone," or "All Along the Watchtower" are anomalies as pop hits. Only Dylan could pull that off, because he is just that talented. 

Dylan didn't just write songs, he took us on journeys. His albums painted pictures and captured the essence of America.

In this Oprah Winfrey clip Paul McCartney plays several different instruments. He can play the bass, the guitar, the drums and more. Dylan is cute with his guitar, harmonica combo, but McCartney is a better technical musician, hands down.

#DylanReigns

Dylan has produced over 500 songs and more than 40 albums. Dylan is an American treasure and in this interview you get a sense of just how reflective he can be. Even he acknowledges that some of his earlier work can't be reproduced, it required a kind of creative magic that he was able to tap into when he was a younger man.
