The Rolling Stones were among the big winners at the annual NME Music Awards.
According to an article posted today at NME.com, “The World’s Greatest Rock N’ Roll Band” took home two trophies at the ceremony held Wednesday night in London for Best Live Band for their 50th anniversary London O2 shows, as well as Best Music Film for the documentary “Crossfire Hurricane.”
Stones guitarist Ron Wood accepted the awards on the band’s behalf, saying, "Mick, Keith and Charlie were too nervous to come out from backstage so I stepped up."
The veteran musician was also a presenter at the event and performed a rendition of The Smiths' "How Soon Is Now" with guitarist Johnny Marr.
When asked about The Stones doing more shows, the recently wed rocker replied, "Keep your eye out because you know I want to do some more, and I know that the boys do too," he said. "I want to do [Glastonbury] badly, but I've no idea yet.”
The “Satisfaction” hitmakers are scheduled to meet this month and Wood has claimed a headline gig at the prestigious U.K. festival will be among the business discussed.
