PILTON, England - There's a first time for everything, even if you're the Rolling Stones. The rock rabble-rousers who formed half a century ago played Britain's Glastonbury Festival on Saturday, their debut appearance at the country's most prestigious rock music event. A majority of the 135,000 festival ticket-holders crammed into the fields in front of Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage for the gig, which opened with a rousing "Jumpin' Jack Flash."

As on recent tour dates, the Stones gave fans a fistful of classic hits - including "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It)," ''Paint it Black," ''Wild Horses" and "Gimme Shelter" - as well as newer songs.

There was even a brand-new folky number called "Glastonbury Girl," written specially for the occasion.

Singer Mick Jagger, who turns 70 in July, has lost none of his swagger, strutting the stage in a sequined green jacket, a satin-lined black cape - on "Sympathy For the Devil" - and other eye-catching outfits.
