Bill Wyman Will "Never" Perform with Rolling Stones Again

Bill Wyman Will "Never" Perform with Rolling Stones Again -

As the Rolling Stones prepare to perform at the 2013 edition of the Glastonbury Festival, former bassist Bill Wyman has revealed he will "never" play with the rock veterans again.

Wyman joined Jagger and co onstage for the band's 50th anniversary gigs which took place last November, however last month the bassist said he would not be interested in rejoining on a permanent basis as he has "better things to do."

In an interview with Huffington Post, Wyman said (via NME):

"The nice thing was that my kids saw me on stage with the Stones," he said. "They'd asked me the December before, and I had to jam with them for three days. I was under the impression I was going to get really involved, but when it came to it, they only wanted me to do two songs, which was very disappointing."

He then added:

"I've always maintained that you can't go back to things, and they can never be the same. it's like a school reunion, or Tony Hancock's Army reunion. If you try to go back and have a relationship with someone, it doesn't work, and it's the same musically. It doesn't work. It was a one-off. Five minutes. OK, never again. No regrets, we're still great friends."

The Rolling Stones will headline the Glastonbury Festival for the first time in the 50 year career on June 29 and will also perform two dates in London's Hyde Park on July 6 and 13.
