The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood says he wants his band to play at Glastonbury next year.
Referring to Emily Eavis' recent comments that she'd do her best to book The Stones for Glastonbury 2013, Wood said: "There’s been no mention of [Glastonbury, within the band] but I’m gonna bring it up. They’ll probably go 'get out of here Woody, shut up, no!' I don’t care, I always take risks like that, so I'll put it forward."
He added: "I have great respect for [Glastonbury] because it is an institution, that there frolic in the mud. No festival would be complete without the mud! The ghost of Woodstock, I regard it as."
Last week, The Rolling Stones announced two huge London dates for November. The rock legends will play London's O2 Arena on November 25 and 29 to celebrate their 50th anniversary. They will also be playing two nights at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey in the US on December 13 and 15. All the dates sold out in minutes.
