The LA Weekly is a weaker shell of its former self and the article is rediculously uninsightful.

It just goes to show how rabid some fans are vs. others about their favorite bands.

Ricky Martin is going to be announced as the surprise headliner for Friday.

This one is stupid. Black, Latino, and White all describe people who could be from anywhere but are descended from people of a certain area. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, is a country of origin, not a race. It's an entirely different beast. If they did the whole thing by country of origin, it would be a lot more diverse.

I know, though. It's just a joke. I am all for jokes. But.

However, major labels need not fret. Of the 16 “headliners” (which I’ve defined as those in the first five rows of the official Coachella IX poster, including but not limited to David Gilmour, Kraftwerk, Portishead, The Verve, The Raconteurs, Love and Rockets, and Death Cab for Cutie), only five aren’t signed to a major label, and three of those used to be on majors.

he said david gilmour instead of roger waters.

what ever happened to journalistic integrity and a good hard fact-checking editor slouched over a sheet of paper in a smokey room?

Don't forget a scotch in one hand and a dame with great gams in the other.

i would rather have David Gilmour....better yet both....even better yet all 4 members and the ghost of Syd Barrett.
