Despite my best efforts, it proved impossible to avoid the coverage of Glastonbury entirely. One thing I did glean is that Kanye West received a decidedly mixed reaction. One of those who apparently couldn't be bothered with the self-proclaimed "greatest living rock star on the planet" (he's not noted for his modesty) was the BBC's subtitle writer, who essentially shrugged his shoulders and gave up.
I have no time for West, but had I had a Glastonbury ticket I wouldn't have signed the petition protesting against his appearance for the simple reason that the identity of the Pyramid Stage headliners never matters - there's so much else going on. Anyone wanting to avoid West had the choice of seeing The Mothership Returns (George Clinton, Parliament, Funkadelic & The Family Stone), Jon Hopkins and Leftfield amongst many, many others. So if you don't like West, there was no need whatsoever to go and indulge his gargantuan ego.
