Rainy Day Women Ages 55 And Up: Bob Dylan Makes Cover Of AARP Magazine

SCOTT SIMON, HOST:

The times they are a-changin'. But should you ever doubt that, the cover and featured interview in the next issue of the AARP Magazine will be Bob Dylan.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "FOREVER YOUNG")

SIMON: The editor-in-chief of the AARP Magazine is Robert Love, who is the former managing editor of Rolling Stone. That also sounds like a milestone. The interview is timed to coincide with Mr. Dylan's 36th studio album, recording of classic American songs called "Shadows In The Night." Bob Dylan on the cover of AARP Magazine. How does it feel? Don't think twice. It's all right.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "FOREVER YOUNG")

BOB DYLAN: (Singing) May you grow up to be righteous. May you grow up to be true. May you always know the truth and see the light surrounding you. May you always be courageous, stand upright and be strong. And may you stay forever young. May you stay forever young. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
