NEW YORK, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- U.S. folk rock legend Bob Dylan says some of the titles his admirers have given him over the years are a bit over the top.
In his first TV interview in 19 years, to be broadcast Sunday at 7 p.m. EST on CBS' "60 Minutes," Dylan says he dismisses labels like "prophet" or "savior."
"It was like being in an Edgar Allen Poe story and you're just not that person everybody thinks you are, though they call you that all the time," he says. "'You're the prophet. You're the savior.' I never wanted to be a prophet or a savior. Elvis maybe. I could see myself becoming him. But prophet? No."
Rolling Stone magazine recently named his "Like a Rolling Stone" the best song of all time, another accolade that doesn't do much for Dylan.
"Oh, maybe this week (it's No. 1). But you know, the list, they change names ... quite frequently, really. I don't pay much attention to that," he says.
