Alas no. They don't even answer my agent's emails these days. Oh well.
Shows? All of em.

Any idea why? It seems bizarre that they would be happy to book you in the early days, but not now.

Because Frank is a diva. He won't play anything lower than the Pyramid Stage without being promised his own backstage toilet AND bar.

Be honest, did you shag Emily and never call her or something?

No. I suspect they're friends with certain journalists who don't like me. But that's speculation.
Shows? All of em.

I for one am glad. I know full well it's for charidee, rather than eevil capitalism, but Glasto' still pisses me off with its preposterously unfair / arbitrary ticketing system (yes, I''ve never managed to get any!) and the fact that every other fucker there is on a corporate / media freebie ...

Eh? Surely it's better than festivals like Reading, where touts buy shitloads of tickets and sell them on for profit (well they did when it used to sell out quickly, anyway)? I thought the Glasto system was pretty much the most fair. I did get them at my first attempt this year though!

I first went to Glasto 20 years ago!
Holy fuck that makes me feel REALLY old all of a sudden ... (year of crisis).

It has changed an awful lot since then, but there are still a few small little areas that are lovely.
The last time I went I only saw about 3 bands and just spent the week watching circus, comedy and theatre acts ...

It's a massive place and I think if you avoid the main stage and other stage - you have a much nicer time.

If they don't like you why was Michael Eavis at your Bath Pavillion Gig December 2012?

Still a bit miffed about this...
Meanwhile a totally average band like Haim gets to play two years in a row.

If Frank was booked, then he'd probably end up clashing (that got autocorrected to flashing, which would be a completely different set) with Dolly Parton. Dolly would win that one.
