You honestly saying you wouldn't go to it? Would be one hell of a singalong.

Oh yes I can. Very clearly and it will be loouuudddd. Until we lose our voices two verses in and hum the rest enthusiastically.

R.E.M as long as they play nothing after AFTP. 

Eh? Nothing from Monster, New Adventures in Hifi or Up? are you mad! Some of R.E.M.'s best work came after AFTP...

Smiths would be OK if they didn't piss arse about trying to make new material.

Mozza and especially Marr have been prolific over the years with new material. If they ever got back together, releasing new material.would not be the worry. It is Mozza continually postponing gigs or walking off stage due to illness that would be my worry.

I think Mozza, Marr and Rourke will play together some day, I just can't ever see it happening at Glastonbury.

I just don't want them to ruin a legacy with shit new music is all. I don't mind their solo material but new Smiths (if shite) would ruin it forever!

Sorry mate I misunderstood. I thought you wanted new tunes and did not want them pissing about like the Roses.

For me the Roses have tainted themselves by not releasing new stuff. They have come across as money grabbers.

I honestly don't think the Mozza and Marr partnership could fail as they are that good. If they got back together then I would want new music.

It's a real shame Pulp never headlined Glasto when they came back. They were incredible on the Park and even managed to pull out an excellent gig at Hyde Park.

Zeppelin reforming would be the biggest headliner in modern memory

yea, that Roses thing has really tainted them for me, I did want new music off them at start but it took them 5 years to produce 2 shitty songs, 1 of which they still can't play live, and now it looks like they're splitting up again.  Smiths are infinitely more talented than the Roses but I would just worry something like that would happen as a result of a bust up

Out of that lot I've already seen Floyd, Zeppelin, REM, The Smiths, The Jam, the Pistols and Oasis. So either Talking Heads or ABBA.

That said, in the unlikely event of the latter ever reforming, they could play whatever venues they wanted and charge the earth - and demand would always be huge. Can't see them reforming to play a Glasto Sunday afternoon slot.

Think when they headlined in 1992, JB had a moan on stage about the place. Don't think they were invited back after that!

I once saw them play at my University Summer Ball, 3rd on the bill behind Let Loose and Sean Maguire. That was 4 years after they headlined Glastonbury.

Definitely Led Zeppelin out of that list for me.

I'd love to see My Chemical Romance but that's not really relevant to Glasto.
