Wednesday, August 21, 2013 - 11:33
In an exclusive interview with Stereophonics frontman told how he had been invited back for a third meeting with the show’s producers, with eventual pickDanny O'Donoghuealso approached around the same time.
Jones explained: “I had a couple of chats with some people and once they asked me back for the third chat I realised they were serious and I bottled it.”
The lead singer also admitted: “It took between January and June of your year away and I don’t think I’d be that comfortable judging other people.”
Despite not appearing on the show, Kelly did admit that both he and the other Stereophonics were fans: “We’re happy as being a band, I mean we watch it on a Saturday night for a laugh but it’s not what I really want to do.”
The Welsh band also said how it felt good to be V veterans first playing the festival in 1997, stating how the shift from the festival’s more traditional rock and indie sound to pop hasn’t put the band off either.
“It’s good to have a varied line up when it comes to festivals,” added Richard Jones. “It’s about good music.”
