    i remember last year, an indio local said there was an area near the polo fields with a sign saying something like "future site of coachella music & arts festival".

    might be. might not be.

    The property next door to Empire Polo, known as Eldorado Polo Club, was up for sale the last 2 years. Apparently, any deals fell through... I know I was offered my job back there with the possibility of atleast 2 seasons of work if I had wanted. Will that ease your worries?

    Every year there's the same rumor going around. The polo fields are not going anywhere, they need them in that area.

    Billboard: How did Stagecoach come together?

    Paul Tollet: I had seen a small country show at Empire Polo Field in the '90s. It seemed like a fun local event. There were rumors last year that the polo fields were going to be sold, so I talked to the owners and said, "If I commit to two big festivals, will that be enough incentive for you to not develop for now?" They said, "Yes," so we developed the country idea.

    Yes he is, and has for a long time...Trust me, he has many other eggs in his nest. I know him, and this guy would rather bask in the glow of Coachella Music Fest than another housing developement here in the desert. If he did anything, it would be to buy out Eldorado's property and make that campground into a 5***** hotel before he give up on something that keeps growing like Coachella. Now...wouldn't that be sweet?

    Thank you, Andrew. And actually, long before I made it to my first Coachella in 2004, I had a little casita right on the polo club property right next to the campgrounds. The first time I met him, I had just moved there and was coming home from work late at night driving down that dirt road. As I was trying to avoid the rough spots and potholes, this Mercedes comes towards me flashing it's headlights, so I stopped. This guy gets out and comes up to me asking if I was okay because I was driving erratically down the dirt road, and after introducing myself, I said to him that whoever owned this road should get it graded because the potholes sucked... He paused and then introduced himself..."Hi, I'm Alex Hagen, and I own the road..." And within the week, no more potholes.

    Shenanigans should be called, not said.

    In defense of BD, in seeing how hard she is to ignore on the board, do you really think it would be possible for the owner to have not had an encounter with our dear Bev?

    Ah, and then there was a memorable night when I was bartending at the Cantina along the side of the campgrounds and he had just opened the Tackroom Tavern Bar near the entrance gate. The Cantine belonged to Eldorado Polo Club, so there was that competitive thing going on. I had a full house of partiers and he comes walking in to announce that he's buying a free round down at his bar, so naturally the polo peeps headed that way to continue partying. (How tacky, right?) About an hour later, he returns as I'm going about closing up the Cantina, and sits at the bar with a cocksure look on his face, asks me for a drink, and proceeds to try and intimidate me with his bragging about the crowd bailing on me, and how the Tavern has been remodelled, etc...I noticed his drink getting low, so I proceeded to be "neighborly and polo friendly," and made him another...Double, of course...And just as he was about to head on down that ol' bumpy road, shitfaced, no less, in come the polo peeps after their free drink to start the party over at the Cantina with me...Good Times! LOL

    I did a facebook search for this Alex Haagen fellow, and one of his music "likes" is...Jupiter's Ring. I dont remember if we ever figured out how they got on the bill two years ago.

    probably not the same guy. He's really old and I doubt he has a facebook. He lives in Palos Verdes if I'm not mistaken. My dad use to do some work for him. He owns the Manhattan Beach Village shopping mall in the town where I live
