Mick Jagger and Keith Richards about doing Live Aid (1985):
Mick: “I did it to raise a lot of money. That was the main thing, to draw attention to the hunger in the world. Down the line, people can appreciate what can be done by an event of this magnitude. It was really a relatively nice, well-meaning event.”
Keith: “Well, it’s not the first time I’ve played with Dylan… First time before a paying audience. Course we didn’t get paid (laughs). Would have been better if we’d gotten paid… Technically it was a very dizzy thing to do. Three acoustic guitars at the end of God knows how many hours of high-tech band stuff. We couldn’t hear a goddamn thing except the band behind us tuning up to do We Are the World. But it was a real privilege to play with Bob. I’ll work with that asshole anytime.”
