Rolling Stones for Glastonbury? Rumours intensify.

Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno has apparently confirmed that The Rolling Stones will be playing this summer's Glastonbury Festival.

Speaking to MTV News, the band's chief songwriter was talking about Kasabian's headline slot at Hard Rock Calling, which takes place the same June weekend as Glastonbury. He said: "I hope ours is the most talked about performance of the weekend, but that would be a miracle because The Rolling Stones are playing Glastonbury."

Many a Rolling Stone has previously hinted at playing the show's Pyramid Stage. Mick Jagger told NME in January "There are other things in the world, you know, apart from Glastonbury! But then again, Glastonbury is very important. It seems to be very important to my children – highlight of their year!"

He added, "But is it going to be rainy on the Sunday? Isn't it nearly always rainy on the Sunday?"

Ronnie Wood seemed more determined in an interview with the Independent.

"Wouldn't it be nice?" Wood said, adding "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. I've got lots of high hopes this year, now that we're all rehearsed - let's get it cracking this summer!"
