Hip-hop stars Black Eyed Peas were forced to take Sting's helicopter to last summer's (04) Glastonbury Festival in England when a quick trip to his Wiltshire "castle" left them running late for their appearance.

The rocker invited the group to visit him in between a festival date in Spain and their Glastonbury show, but they had no idea a tour of Sting's Lake House estate would take so long.

Rapper WILL.I.AM recalls arriving at the festival in style: "The audience thought it was part of the show."

The story is told in a comic strip in the new issue of rock magazine Spin.
