The Stones want to play at Glastonbury
Mick Jagger appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman to offer his list of the ‘Top 10 Things I, Mick Jagger, Have Learned After 50 Years In Rock N’ Roll’.
He took the opportunity to take a lighthearted swipe at the Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera hit that referenced his dancing, saying: “You don’t earn a cent when someone does a song called ‘Moves Like Jagger’.”
Jagger is in New York ahead of the Rolling Stones guest appearance at the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at Madison Square Garden in NYC. He returned to the Ed Sullivan theatre to film the segment, having first performed there with The Rolling Stones in 1964.
The band also perform sold-out concerts in neighbouring New Jersey.
Jagger’s number 1 ‘Thing that he’s learnt in Rock ‘n’ Roll’ was, “At first, you do Rock ‘n’ Roll to do drugs and have lots of sex…but you end up doing drugs to do Rock ‘n’ Roll and have lots of sex”.
Keith Richards says that the band have made no plans for next year yet, but that he would love to headline Glastonbury if they could.
“That’s a good one,” he says of the Glastonbury rumour. “I’m really going to be guilty here of leaving that one up in the air. I mean I’d love to. But look, I don’t know anything about next year at the moment, I really don’t. We’re just getting this year under our belts. But anything’s possible, that’s all I can say about it. But if it could happen, I’d love to.”
