Former guitarst keen to perform with band on The Pyramid Stage

Mick Taylor hopeful of joining The Rolling Stones onstage at Glastonbury
Mick Taylor says he is hopeful that he will be able to get up and play with The Rolling Stones when they headline Glastonbury in June.

As confirmed last week, the legendary band will headline the Saturday night of the festival on a bill which also includes headliners Arctic Monkeys and Mumford & Sons. When The Rolling Stones performed in London at the end of 2012 they played with a number of guest stars including Florence Welch, Mary J Blige and former guitarist Taylor.

Speaking to The Sun about the Somerset festival, Taylor said playing with Mick Jagger "would be great", adding: "I really didn’t think they’d be touring again. But I hoped they’d want to re-create some of the music from my days in the band. It would be a big noise, I tell you."

However, Taylor was not completely sure the band would be able to find room for him during their set. "Having said that, the last time I saw them play live from the crowd was at Wembley Stadium six or seven years ago and to me it seemed that they hardly played anything from the '70s or indeed the '60s."
