The rock world reacts...
Two rock legends have reacted to the news that Metallica will headline the 2014 Glastonbury festival, the first metal artist to do so in the entire 44 year history of the event. They will perform at Worthy Farm in June. In an interview with The Sun (via NME), Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones offered his thoughts.
He said: "I've seen them live and they're going to be great."
He also said the Stones had a "great time" headlining, which is why they are playing more festivals this summer.
In a separate interview with NME, Judas Priest singer Rob Halford had a similar reaction.
He said: "I think it's great, but I did have a bit of a diva moment when I heard. I rang Michael [Eavis] and said I loved it. I love that he's bringing metal to Glastonbury, but I did say next time he wants to bring metal to Glastonbury, can you make sure it's British? Metallica are our best mates, and I'm thrilled for them. I think when Michael Eavis sees how mad the crowd go he'll realize metal can work there, and hopefully he'll book Priest in a couple of years."
