Listen to The Rolling Stones on iHeartRadio

Mick Jagger says The Rolling Stones aren't playing Coachella, but not for the reasons that had been rumored.

Jagger tells NME that there were no money issues. It's simply because the festival is "too early. There was a rumor we were gonna do that one, but it's very early, Coachella. It's April or something, isn’t it? And we're not gonna be ready to go by April. But we're not gonna stop."

The Stones are the leading nominee for the NME Awards, with nods for Best Live BandBest BookMusic Moment of the Year and Best Music Film. The awards will be handed out February 27th in London.
