Rod Stewart is desperate for The Faces to be invited to play at Glastonbury Festival.

During an interview on BBC Radio London the 70-year-old singer appealed to Festival organisers to get in touch with the band. Rod said, "I just wish someone would phone us up from Glastonbury and ask us to do that. They have never done it. We would be up for it. There are only three of us standing now."

The band reformed last month with remaining members Ronnie Wood and Kenney Jones, for the first time in 39 years, for a one-off charity gig for Prostate Cancer UK performing I Feel So Good, You Can Make Me Dance, Ooh La La, I’d Rather Go Blind, (I Know) I’m Losing You, Stay With Me and Sweet Little Rock ‘n’ Roller.

Stewart left the band, in 1975, to pursue a solo career that included an appearance at Glastonbury in 2002. The Faces fronted by Simply Red's Mick Hucknall reunited in 2010 and played at the Vintage at Goodwood Festival, and Cornbury Music Festival in 2011.

Perhaps his awful performance last time, has put Festival organisers off?

In other line-up news on the TV show Loose Women on Tuesday, 6th October, 70s pop star Leo Sayer was asked if he would like to perform at Glastonbury Festival.

He replied, that he hoped to secure the Sunday legends slot, saying, "Oh it's on the cards, man! Why not? I mean, there's that nice little slot where they put people like Al Green - legendary artists, and yeah, I could do that hands down. I'm sorry, I'm not being flash but bring it on!"
