The Stones Talk About Desert Trip Festival
The Rolling Stones have spoken in a new interview about late summer's massive Desert Trip festival in California, The festival will take place over two weekends in October. Stones and Bob Dylan play the Friday nights, Paul McCartney and Neil Young will headline the Saturday legs and Roger Waters and The Who will close each weekend on the Sundays. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards talked about the upcoming events. "I thought it was Coachella for old people," Jagger joked when asked about what he thought of Desert Trip”, and he added "Maybe I'll just get my RV and stay there for a bit longer."
Jagger continued to say "On the Friday night, it's going to be us and Bob Dylan, so there will be masses of musicians, actually masses of guests of all the musicians, and it's a fun time for everyone."
Keith Richards declared: "How many trips can you take to the desert, man? The line-up is just amazing. I can't believe we're all going to be stuck in this little town together. I mean, never have we ever all in the same place at the same time." The Stone's guitarist reveals his desire to work with Dylan:
"I'd work with Bob any[where]. I'd work with Bob in hell or heaven. I love him."
In the past Keith has been critical of Bob Dylan: "Bob's a nasty little bugger. I remember him saying to me, 'I could have written 'Satisfaction', but you couldn't have written 'Desolation Row''. I said, 'Well, you're right there, Bob.'"
