Bob Dylan: I wanted to be teacher

Bob Dylan says if he weren't a musician, he would be a teacher.

The 73-year-old is on the cover of AARP's February/March issue and told the magazine that "if I had to do it all over again, I'd be a schoolteacher." He adds that he "probably" would have taught Roman history or theology.

Dylan will release Shadows In the Night on Febraury 3. The album features songs from the 1920s to the 1960s, including standards like Autumn Leaves, 'That Lucky Old Sun and Stay With Me.

The songs also were recorded by Frank Sinatra. Dylan says he thinks Sinatra would "be amazed I did these songs with a five-piece band."

Dylan is giving 50,000 readers of the magazine a free copy of his album.
