Keith Richards Says he Would Work with Dylan in ‘Hell or Heaven’

By Robyn Collins

The Rolling Stones will be sharing a huge bill with Bob Dylan this summer, and they say that’s just fine with them. The massive Desert Trip festival in Indio, California will take place over two weekends in October.

The Stones and 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.

“How many trips can you take to the desert, man?” Keith Richards told Rolling Stone. “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.”

Mick Jagger agreed, but jokingly dubbed the festival “Coachella for old people,” adding, “Maybe I’ll just get my RV and stay there for a bit longer.”

Richards praised Bob Dylan in the interview: “I’d work with Bob any[where]. I’d work with Bob in hell or heaven. I love him.” The comment contradicts some of Richards’ past statements, including one he made to NME: “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.'”

Desert Trip Dates:

The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan (October 7, 14)

Paul McCartney, Neil Young (October 8, 15)

Roger Waters, The Who (October 9, 16)
