“…take a trip…”

If you could build your own concert event, you’d be hard pressed to come up with a better line up than this…

The Rolling Stones…Bob Dylan…Paul McCartney…Neil Young…Roger Waters…The Who…

Can you imagine…

The group that brought you ‘Exile On Main Street’ and ‘Let It Bleed’…the man who changed a generation with ‘Blonde On Blonde’ and ‘Blood On The Tracks’…a former Beatle, who just happens to be, a former Beatle…one fourth of CSNY and the solo troubadour of ‘Harvest’ and ‘Earth’…a founding member of Pink Floyd and solo artist of ‘Amused To Death’ and ‘The Pros And Cons Of Hitchhiking’…and the mod rockers of ‘Tommy’ and ‘Quadrophenia’…

Crazy as it may sound, they actually got them to agree to a three-day weekend event, with The Stones and Dylan sharing the first night…Mac and Neil on the second night…Waters and The Who rounding out the last night…

however…

Tickets sold out so fast that they all agreed to do another weekend of shows…

Now…the title of this event is ‘Desert Trip’, and it is taking place in Indio, California, on the site where the ‘Coachella’ festival is usually held…

And…there have been some snarky comments in reference to the concert, by calling it ‘Oldchella’…

Personally, I just think they’re mad because it took true talent to make up a concert like this…

…and true passion to make music like this…
