And here’s the proof!
Stones drummer Charlie Watts has said that he doesn’t want to play Glastonbury because he doesn’t like festivals or playing outdoors.
The band will headline the Saturday night at Glastonbury, joining fellow headliners Arctic Monkeys and Mumford & Sons on the bill for the Worthy Farm festival.
However, Watts seems less than excited about the prospect, telling The Guardian that he worries the wind on the night will make it difficult for him to play the drums to the best of his ability:
“I don’t want to do it [Glastonbury]. Everyone else does. I don’t like playing outdoors, and I certainly don’t like festivals,” he told the paper. “The worse thing playing outdoors is when the wind blows, if you’re a drummer, because the cymbals move … it really is hard to play then.”
The Rolling Stones announced details of another outdoor show yesterday, confirming that they will play London’s Hyde Park in July. The rock legends will perform at the central London location as part of the Barclaycard presents British Summer Time festival. Tickets for The Rolling Stones in Hyde Park go on general sale at 9am Friday, April 5.
