Watch: Keith Richards joins Willie Nelson onstage for memorable 90th birthday gig
The pair played We Had It All together along with Billy Joe Shaver’s country hit Live Forever
It was the second of two nights performed for the occasion, called Long Story Short: Willie Nelson 90.
The Rolling Stones guitarist, 79, walked onstage to immense cheer as he greeted the crowd, “Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. It’s good to be here. It’s good to be anywhere.”
Together with Nelson and his two sons on Telecaster and acoustic, Lukas and Micah, the group played through covers of We Had It All, made famous by Waylon Jennings, and a touching take on Billy Joe Shafver’s Live Forever.
“I’m surrounded by Nelsons,” joked Richards in between.
