Blur 'nearly' played Glastonbury

Alex James writes in his latest column for The Independent that Blur were very close of performing at this year's Glastonbury Festival.

"Blur very nearly played Glastonbury this year, and there was a pang of regret when I heard Damon's mum had nixed it at the eleventh hour."

Despite the cancellation, Alex appears to be quite happy they never made it to the stage: "I was looking forward to showing off to Claire and the kids, but I suppose the important thing was to have been asked, and listening to all that screaming I felt pleased about how things had turned out."

He concludes with optimistic words: "I'm sure it'll happen one day".
