Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie wood shared his views about R&B artist Kanye West’s slot at this years Glastonbury festival.

Ronnie Wood tells the Daily Mirror, “It p**ses me off so I try not to think about it too much. Glastonbury is the home of rock music and, look, Kanye isn’t rock.

“He’s a great entertainer and he knows how to captivate an audience with all his swearing, but when it comes to what that festival is about, it’s the wrong choice. Good luck to the man – I don’t know if he’ll survive when he’s on that stage. People who go there for rock music are starting to get very angry about all these rappers and R ‘n’ B singers taking over.”

West is due to perform on Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage in the Saturday night headline slot on 27 June, but his inclusion on the bill has angered many music fans, and a petition set up on calling for his set to be axed has attracted more than 100,000 signatures.
