Wood hopes to headline Glastonbury

Ronnie Wood would love to headline Glastonbury

Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood has revealed he is planning to persuade the rest of the band to headline Glastonbury this year.

The rockers - Ronnie, 65, Sir Mick Jagger, 69, Keith Richards, 69, and drummer Charlie Watts, 71, - performed a series of live concerts last year to mark their 50th anniversary, and Ronnie is keen to continue the celebrations.

He admitted he is keen to play at the music festival, and is determined to get the other Stones on board.

Asked about Glastonbury he 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."

And he is also hopeful they will extend their tour, after playing a few dates in London, New Jersey and Paris last year.

Ronnie said: "I've got lots of high hopes this year, now that were all rehearsed - let's get it cracking this summer!"

The 65-year-old rocker was partying at the Elle Style Awards at London's Savoy Hotel, where guests including Bradley Cooper and Kate Hudson enjoyed a night of high fashion and Cointreau cocktails.

He had just returned from his honeymoon after getting married for the third time, to 34-year-old theatre producer Sally Humphreys. He joked: "I've just come back from my perma-moon haven't I?

"We got to be nice and peaceful on Mustique, we had a house, empty, beautiful beach, fantastic."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Sorting out and organising your surroundings should be your first priority. As a general rule, you don't mind an untidy workspace. As far as you're concerned, messiness is a sign of genius. There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
