Ronnie Wood has said that he is hoping to persuade his bandmates in The Rolling Stones to headline Glastonbury this summer.

The rumour that The Stones could be set to make their debut appearance on the Pyramid Stage in 2013 has been abound since they returned to the stage with two gigs at London's O2 Arena in late 2012. Mick Jagger has previously dropped hints at the possibility of the band playing at the festival and now Ronnie Wood has revealed that he is keen to play too. "Wouldn't it be nice?" he said when asked about the possibility this week by The Independent.

He added: "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. I've got lots of high hopes this year, now that we're all rehearsed - let's get it cracking this summer!"

Meanwhile, This year's Glastonbury festival is to be live streamed for the first time with viewers able to watch different stages as they happen. The BBC will use the latest digital technology to allow viewers to choose from simultaneous live streams from all the major stages.

In other Glastonbury news, it was recently confirmed that Daft Punk will not be performing despite ongoing rumours.
