THE Charlatans lead singer Tim Burgess is so in awe of American rock legend Bob Dylan, he plans to rugby tackle the star when they meet at this summer's (04) Fleadh festival.

Burgess can't wait for the chance to meet Dylan at the London event and plans to express his adoration for him in unusual style.

He says, "The Fleadh festival should be good, I've never met Bob Dylan before.

"I'd like to meet him but I know he's a bit touchy about things like that.

"He's my hero really, I'll probably see him and run up to him as fast as I can and rugby tackle him."
