In his work as a professional adventurer and overall sampler of both food and life, Anthony Bourdain has had the chance to work with a dream list of collaborators.
“The toy box keeps getting bigger,” he laughs. But despite working with basically every musician, writer, or cinematographer he wants, there’s still one collaborator Bourdain wants to nail down for a big project: the Rolling Stones’ guitarist Keith Richards.
“I’d like to make bangers and mash, and maybe have a meat pie with him,” Bourdain told Business Insider after speaking at a Capital One Spark Business event.
But his plans are bigger than that.
“I’d like to revisit the locations from ‘Exile on Main St.’ and re-experience that wild year from a slightly more comfortable and less toxic point of view,” he said. “Exile on Main St.,” the iconic 1972 album from the Rolling Stones, is famous not just for its quality, but for being partially recorded in France while the band was on the run from British taxes.
Bourdain has some more esoteric collaboration ideas for a potential collaboration with Richards as well.
“I know he’s very interested in British naval history,” Bourdain says. “I’d love to do a show about that with Keith.”
Whatever the topic, a collaboration between these two legendary raconteurs would surely have no problem generating buzz.
