Good news, Rolling Stones fans and Glasto-goers: it turns out that Ronnie Wood wants the legendary rock band to make their debut performance on the Pyramid stage this year.

In an interview with The Independent, Wood revealed that he wants to persuade his bandmates to play Glastonbury this year, saying: “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.”

The band performed a series of live concerts in London, New Jersey and Paris last year to mark their 50th anniversary, with their two gigs at London's O2 Arena fuelling speculation that they would be appearing at the Worthy Farm festival. The band's representatives stated before the shows that they would not be headlining the festival in 2013, but now that guitarist Wood's on board, hopefully Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts will fall into place, too.

Wood also said that he hoped to continue the Stones's run of celebratory shows, saying: “I've got lots of high hopes this year, now that we're all rehearsed – let's get it cracking this summer!”
