Keith Richards wants to work with Bob Dylan at Desert Trip

Los Angeles - The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards wants to work with Bob Dylan.

The 72-year-old rocker and the Forever Young hitmaker will be performing on the same day at mega festival Desert Trip at California's Empire Polo Club in Indio and Keith would love to get the opportunity to collaborate with Bob at any point over the two weeks the event takes place in October.

He said: "I'd work with Bob anywhere. I'd work with Bob in hell or heaven. I love him." 

The Satisfaction rocker and his bandmates will also be joined on the bill by Sir Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and The Who, and he still can't believe all these legends are going to be in the same place at once. 

He told Rolling Stone magazine: "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."

Keith's bandmate Sir Mick Jagger has joked that the event - which has been organised by the creators of Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival - is for "old people" and says he plans on resting in his recreational Vehicle [RV] between shows rather than partying hard like the old days.

The 72-year-old singer quipped: "I thought it was Coachella for old people! Maybe I'll just get my RV and stay there for a bit longer.

He added: "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."
