Rolling Stones tipped for Glastonbury
Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood has revealed he is planning to persuade the rest of the band to headline Glastonbury this year.
The rockers – Wood, 65, Sir Mick Jagger, 69, Keith Richards, 69, and drummer Charlie Watts, 71, – performed a series of live concerts last year to mark their 50th anniversary, and Wood is keen to continue the celebrations.
He admitted he is keen to play at the music festival in Somerset and is determined to get the others on board.
Asked about Glastonbury, he said: "Wouldn't it be nice? We've got a meeting next month and that's going to be my first question to them. It's something I've always been interested in. I'm going to twist their arms."
