Watch Keith Richards Cover Bob Marley’s ‘Get Up, Stand Up’
By Brian Ives
As the video shows, Richards wasn’t actually with the other musicians for the recording of the song, which is sort of the modus operandi of the Playing for Change organization, who put the collaboration together. Playing for Change is well known for recording different musicians playing the same song, and then editing all of the performances together. Their video for “Stand By Me,” featuring musicians from all over the world, was posted to YouTube in 2008, and has been viewed over 61 million times.
