    Liam should definitely fix the roof whilst the sun's shining cos I agree that his current popularity probably won't maintain. Noel knew when he walked offstage at Knebworth that it was all downhill from that point on. He's 'mod'-elled himself on Paul 'Modbod' Weller since day one and I don't see why he wouldnt continue to do so given that he's pretty much the 'mod'-el of musical integrity in the face of commercial pressure.

    So going crawling to Liam seems unlikely, particularly when he's as rich as Croesus.

    He'll be grateful for the opportunity to wear a Santa hat on the Xmas Top of the Pops.

    Captain Drugwar has the charisma to overcome that obstacle.

    l'm fairly sure that Mani confirmed that Glastonbury didn't offer them enough money.

    I was wondering who that was in your avatar and I've just twigged that it's Mikey Graham.

    Mutoids to construct a giant metal mullet to crown the Pyramid. The tails to robotically waft around in the air when Stagger Lee rapes that guy.

    Would Nick Cave have the worst ever haircut of a Pyramid Stage Headliner?

    Lets see where were are in the run up to 2021. I don't see it in the next two years but if he's only consolidated his current position with another strong record then he'll maybe be looking like a more viable prospect.

    The Stone Roses never made any money in their initial outing. Royalties from Morning Glory alone mean that Noel mever needs to worry for money ever again. He's fucking mentored by Paul 'The Top Mod' Weller, the #1 example of never reforming.

    Worst Headliner?

    Kasabian headlining was so Brexit there was even a tiny version of it on that Sun front page from a couple of days back.

    Noel Gallagher must be one of the richest men in rock. Wealthy enough to never need to spend any time with someone he really seems to hate.

    I'm not even sure what their incentive is either.

    Was anyone here in the audience that has any idea why?

    I cant see that they'd need the money, so you'd have to assume that their principles would hold fast.

    "It peaked to soon - the high pressure's starting to break up" is basically the story of Glastonburys 11 through 15.

    Though if he did play the Bad Seeds still might get a bigger crowd than Metallica did.

    So in that case its not really If there's a premium tier of huge one offs who've never played (say Madge or Mac, mibbe Swizzle, mibbe Rihanna) a secondary tier of huge acts that could possibly play again (say Queen Bey, Macca, Blur, Pulp or Coldplay) and a tertiary tier of bright future hopes (Kendrick, mibbe Stormzy) then the Nickster's in the quarternary layer of last resorts alongside the also rans like Biffy Clyro and never should have runs like Mumford and Kasabian. I dont think its as unlikely as it was 4 or 5 years ago, but it wouldnt be a premium booking.

    I wouldnt have said so. I like the Cavester as much as the next spooky swamp-dwelling wampyre, but he tours regularly and up until a few years back was still just playing the academies. Most people who want to see him must have done so, several times.

    Keep sanguine, team. We've previously been sat here 10 days out, only to watch a bluebird long range forecast go all to bollocks.

    1.3 million - does Michael Eavis know something we don't know ?

    I'm pretty sure that it was also shown on BBC4 one Friday night a few months back. Might also still be on the iPlayer.
