The Rolling Stones are playing at Glastonbury this summer. (Here's the full line up of the acts
). Sold out. Followed by another open-air show in Hyde Park, London. On July 6. Also sold out
. "So Charlie, the Stones are playing Glastonbury! Excited?"
"I don't want to do it. Everyone else does. I don't like playing outdoors, and I certainly don't like festivals. I've always thought they're nothing to do with playing. Playing is what I'm doing at the weekend (1). That's how I was brought up. But that's me, personally. When you're a band … you do anything and everything. But Glastonbury, it's old hat really. I never liked the hippy thing to start with. It's not what I'd like to do for a weekend, I can tell you."
Rest of what is a great interview, here.
Also, even though it's from a few years back, I think this is still worth a listen: Charlie on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Disc. Listen on-line or download, here.
