Bob Dylan could become new voice of sat-nav system

Tuesday August 25, 2009

Music legend Bob Dylan is "talking to a couple of car companies" about becoming the voice of their GPS system, he has revealed.

Speaking on his BBC Sunday radio show - which was on the theme of street maps - the singer gave listeners a taste of what they may soon be hearing in their vehicles.

"Left at the next street. No, right. You know what? Just go straight," quipped the singer, who is renowned for his raspy, nasally tones.

"I probably shouldn't do it because whichever way I go, I always end up at one place - on Lonely Avenue. Luckily I'm not totally alone. Ray Charles beat me there," he added.

Other famous faces to have lent their voices to sat-nav devices include comedian John Cleese.
