Metallica's Lars Ulrich has tipped AC/DC to be next year's Glastonbury Festival headliners.

The drummer, whose band this year became the first ever metal act to top the bill on the Pyramid Stage, has tipped the British and Australian rockers to follow in their footsteps next year.

When asked by Q who he could imagine headlining Glastonbury next year, Ulrich said: "Foo Fighters would blow that shit up," before adding: "Can I throw in my first bid for who I think Michael Eavis has booked for next year? I have heard it might be a band whose lead singer is British, but none of the rest of the band are. Yeah… AC/DC. Come on! Can you imagine that?"

The drummer also spoke about how he is already planning a return visit to Worthy Farm. "I am hooked and addicted," he said. "Me and my girl Jessica are already talking about returning next year and bringing more of our friends. It doesn't matter what anybody tells you about Glastonbury, you don't know what it's like until you experience it for yourself."

In April, it was reported that AC/DC founder member Malcolm Young would step down from the rock group due to ill health. Rumours had circulated that the band might be forced to call it quits, but a statement on AC/DC's Facebook page on April 16 said that Young will instead take a break from the group after four decades as a member.

AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson later said in an interview that Young was in hospital but that he was confident the guitarist would return to the band.
