Ronnie Wood eyes Glastonbury for the Rolling Stones

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 is keen to play at the music festival and is determined to get the other Stones 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.” And he is also hopeful they will extend their tour, after playing a few dates in London, New Jersey and Paris last year.
