How did the biggest classic rock legends unite for one mega festival? #Coachella architect Paul Tollett tells us he organized Desert Trip, a one-of-a-kind event this fall, that includes the #RollingStones, #PaulMcCartney, #BobDylan, #NeilYoung, #PaulMcCartney, #TheWho and #RogerWaters. Two years ago, Tollett made a wish list that he says consisted only of the six acts. He traveled to see each one play, and he sold them on the idea slowly. “If I’d made a financial offer first, I would have been rejected,” he says. “[The Stones] asked what I was working on. I said, ‘I’m working on one of the greatest shows of all time. I don’t know what that means, but I’ll come back to you.’ ” Click on the link in our bio to read the full story.
