Mick Jagger Recounts The Rolling Stones Glastonbury Festival Debut
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 12.08.2013

Speaking to The Observer, rock legend and Rolling Stones member Mick Jagger called the Glastonbury Festival the "alternative Ascot." The band recently headlined the festival for the first time in their careers. Below are some highlights.

Jagger on the festival being the alternative Ascot: "It's the alternative Ascot, let's face it. Not that I've ever been to the proper Ascot."

Stones on the experience of playing Hyde Park in July 1969: "Everyone was banging on about it, but what I remember is thanks to the film that was made of it [by Granada TV]. The film supersedes my own memory. Someone asked me if I was thinking about '69 when I was on stage this summer. Listen, darling, if I was thinking about that, I'd really be losing it. If you ever start thinking about how pretty the sunset is, you get lost. You can never start wondering about what you'll watch on TV when you're back in the hotel… Homeland, or whatever. You need to pay attention. There are cables to trip over, it can be dark, people throw things. The stage can be dangerous place to be…"

Jagger on how much the band loved playing at Glastonbury: "It's not your stage and it's not your crowd per se – people have bought their tickets before any acts have been announced. I know U2 didn't have the best of nights [in 2011], although the weather didn't help."
