    Default Thoughts on Bruce Springsteen @ Coachella?

    This isn't so much a "I WISH HE WERE PLAYING @ COACHELLA" thread as much as it is a curiosity thread. I'm wondering what your thoughts of Bruce being at Coachella OR if you'd see him if he were to perform.

    With his new album getting great reviews and his name being mentioned by so many new up and coming bands, I don't think it'd be completely out of the question for him to play. I don't know how likely it is, but it'd be cool.

    Thoughts?

    His fans alone ruin the experience...I just saw him a few ago and the fans ruined the experience...oh and that rediculous facial expression he gets on his face that looks like he's pinching a loaf...other than that he and his JAM!!!

    I'd watch him, but don't think he'd be a popular choice with some of the more blinkered festival goers.

    I think its hard to get a headliner that will appeal to EVERYONE that goes to the festival. Sure there are a few bands here n there that can pull it off, but at this point they'd be repeat headliners (Radiohead) and people would probably complain about that.

    I would love to see them in concert just not at Coachella. Monroe St and Thunder Road don't mix.

    Hit those skins Sil, just like Adriana's head.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    since it's always been a Coachella hallmark to have bands that have been influential to the current crop of artists making good tunes, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band would definitely work.

    *yawn*

    If he really wanted, I'd let him open up the festival on Friday
    Superfan will be in front of the Fonda masturbating furiously to a photo of him taking a photo of a band. Set is from 8:05 to approximately 8:05:15. Guest list only.

    If he were to be there, I'd check him out.
    But the other headliners better be major.

    I don't think he's a good fit. but of course I'd watch him.

    I like the idea of an OldButStillGoodChella. me and 25 other people would show up.

    Coachella has had older acts before, why not Bruce?

    Maybe The Arcade Fire can open for him.

    ?? Other than The Killers ripping him off a bit on their new cd, I'm not sure who else The Boss has influenced.
