Jake Bugg has spoken about the influence The Rolling Stones have had on his music.

Bugg opened for the legendary band at their massive concert in London's Hyde Park yesterday (July 13), an experience he described as "a privilege and an honour".

Speaking to Absolute Radio as he came off stage, Bugg said: "I never thought it would be a reality. I mean I've dreamt about it, I've thought of these kind of things but I never thought something like this would actually come true."

Continuing, Bugg said of his Hyde Park performance: "It's the biggest show I've played, maybe not the most receptive crowd wise – you know 70-80,000 people there to see the Rolling Stones, not Jake Bugg, but it's a complete honour. I did T In The Park, which was amazing and then onto supporting the Stones. You can't beat that. I just loved it."

Hailing the band as an inspiration to him, Bugg added: "The Stones have definitely been an influence on me. They're a great band with a good body of work and there is definitely something to be taking out of that. You know they had a lot of old blues influences; they're an amazing band."

Bugg is currently working on the follow-up to his self-titled debut album, which reached Number One last October (2012), and recently admitted it would be "dishonest" if he sang about life on a council estate again because his life has changed so much over the last year. "I want to give an insight to the same people who liked the first record about what my life is like now," he explained.

Jake Bugg will tour the UK in October. The dates will follow appearances at Reading and Leeds Festivals, as well as slots supporting The Stone Roses over the summer.
