Ringo sings as well, he feasibly could sing and not play the drums. I was trying to give Woffy a chance in hell though. No way does McCartney play Glasto and not get Ringo along at this point in his career.

Given they've only played live together 7 times since 1993, I wouldn't hold your breath. Even those have been fundraising events, Harrison concert, Ringo's birthday, Ringo's HoF and lifetime Grammy events.

Anyway less of all this nonsense, saw A Star Is Born last night and am firmly in the Jack and Ally performing 'Shallow' on the pyramid stage camp!

Not a dry eye in the house ;)

I have to say I admire the amazingly audacious confidence level on display here :)

There’s another name for it too, mind.

Good question.

Probably a better fit for Leeds where they would headline, can't see them headlining Glasto and would they take a slot down the bill.

If they play Glasto they 100% headline. But yeah I don't think they'd book em.

yeah you had your day

Not that I'm a huge fan of TRHCP but you don't think Maca and the Cure have also had their day?

To clarify, I'm happy whoever headlines. If I like it I'll be there, if I don't I won't....but I just thought it was a weird criticism given the other names floating around

Bit different, though. RHCP don't have the influence or legacy status that either The Cure or Macca do. They're in a similar position to Green Day who I also don't think will ever headline Glasto now, though I know others disagree on that.

There must be about four bands you think will headline Glastonbury in the future.

Is it any different to someone a decade ago saying they don't think Pearl Jam will ever headline Glasto now? Genuine Q cos I have no idea how Pearl Jam were viewed back then.

I think if the Chillis were ever going to headline Glasto their time would have been 1998-2004. That ship has well and truly sailed aa they don't have the same pull any more, particularly without Frusciante. Athough if they put them as  headliners on the Other Stage I'm sure they would go down a storm and draw a big crowd.

Eh I dunno either. From what I gather - much unlike RHCP or Green Day - Pearl Jam have never been a massive band in the mainstream here and wouldn't have headlined UK festivals twenty years ago anyway so saying "nah not anymore" ten years ago woulda been weird as they'd only just made it there.

For a few reasons I don't personally think Chilis will ever play Glastonbury either - just posted that thing up the page for goofs - but all I meant was that these still-huge rock bands are most certainly in line with the safe choices that Glastonbury chooses to make with its headline bookings now.

Or the time in 2005 that they offered to play for free, and were turned down flat.

Ok, so it was because the spot was filled rather than anything else, but it still amuses me.

Weren't the chilli's meant to headline in 1993 but pulled out for some reason? Their name is on the poster from that year but Lenny Kravitz replaced them as headliner. 

Maybe there was bad feeling after that.

How many headliners have RW got left to announce now? Just the one, isn’t it? 

The Kendrick rumour will probably live or die by that announcement.

So far they have announced:

Thursday: Pink

Friday: The Cure and Tool

Satruday: Mumford and Florence

Sunday: Muse

Surely they have all headliners sorted from that lot? Although maybe Pink isn’t the Thursday headliner.

Thursday will get another co-headliner for sure. It's traditionally the hardest day to sell. Last year QOTSA and Gorillaz headlined and the year before Kings Of Leon and Arcade Fire.
