Keith Richards has told NME that he'd love The Rolling Stones to headline Glastonbury 2013.

Speaking in an exclusive interview in this week's bumper double Christmas issue of NME, which is on newsstands now or available digitally, Richards says that the band have made no plans for next year yet, but that he would love to headline Glastonbury if they could.

"That’s a good one," he says of the Glastonbury rumour. "I'm really going to be guilty here of leaving that one up in the air. I mean I’d love to. But look, I don’t know anything about next year at the moment, I really don’t. We’re just getting this year under our belts. But anything’s possible, that’s all I can say about it. But if it could happen, I’d love to."

Speaking to NME previously about whether The Rolling Stones would happen next year, organiser Emily Eavis said: "We’d obviously like that to happen, we’ve always been quite open about that, whether or not it does, I cannot say."

She added: "I could not tell you now whether it’s going to happen. But we would love it to happen next year, we feel like if it’s going to happen, it’s got to happen next year. So, you know, we’d love for it to happen, so we’ll try our best – I’ll let you know how we get on."

Stevie Nicks has also told NME that she would "love to" headline Glastonbury when Fleetwood Mac come to the UK for their 2013 reunion tour.
