Ron Wood

Rolling Stone guitarist Ron Wood hopes to persuade his fellow Stones to headline the U.K.’s Glastonbury Festival this summer. Asked about Glastonbury by London’s The Independent, Wood said, “Wouldn't it be nice? 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.” Wood added he would like the band to do more shows along the lines of their performances in London, New Jersey and Paris last year. “I've got lots of high hopes this year, now that we're all rehearsed,” he said. “Let's get it cracking this summer!”

Last month, Mick Jagger hinted that a Stones performance at Glastonbury was indeed a possibility. “There are other things in the world, you know, apart from Glastonbury,” Jagger said. “But then again, Glastonbury is very important. It seems to be very important to my children.”
