Bill Wyman Will "Never" Perform with Rolling StonesAgain -

As the Rolling Stones prepare to perform at the2013 edition of the Glastonbury Festival, former bassistBill Wyman has revealed he will "never"play with the rock veterans again.

Wyman joined Jagger and co onstage for the band's 50th anniversarygigs which took place last November, however last month the bassistsaid he would not be interested in rejoining on a permanent basisas 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 theStones," he said. "They'd asked me the December before, and I hadto jam with them for three days. I was under the impression I wasgoing to get really involved, but when it came to it, they onlywanted me to do two songs, which was very disappointing."

He then added:

"I've always maintained that you can't go back to things, andthey can never be the same. it's like a school reunion, or TonyHancock's Army reunion. If you try to go back and have arelationship with someone, it doesn't work, and it's the samemusically. 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 theGlastonbury Festival for the first time in the 50 year career onJune 29 and will also perform two dates in London's Hyde Park onJuly 6 and 13.
