As previously reported, The Rolling Stones’ two Desert Trip performances also will feature Bob Dylan. Also playing the festival will be Paul McCartney and Neil Young on October 8 and 15, and The Who and Roger Waters on October 9 and 16.

In other news, The Rolling Stones have debuted the first installment of a four-part podcast series promoting their new Totally Stripped audio/video releases. The online feature offers archival interview segments with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards discussing the band’s 1995 album Stripped, which featured stripped-down renditions of their well-known tunes recorded live in studios and intimate venues in various cities.

Totally Stripped, which is available in several configurations, contains a new documentary taking an in-depth look at the Stripped project, as well as an album featuring both previously released and unreleased performances from the concerts recorded for Stripped.
