    Thumbs down Missing the ROCK?

    .....i'm thinking that the organizers wanted to tone down the vibe from last year. RHCP and RATM as flatout excellent as they were, did attract a different, shall we say, class of fan. There were really some hardcore maniacs walking around last year......makes me think they're aiming for a crowd (JJ, P and RW) that will be a little more mellow?

    Someone says that almost every year. We've had Rage twice, Tool twice, and Nine Inch Nails. I think the SIZE of the festival last year might have been too much for the community (60,000/day, for 3 days), but i doubt it was the fans - hardcores have been showing up at Coachella since 1999.

    i doubt GV would have a problem with the crowd being too big...though i wouldn't mind if the lineup was a bit more rockin (then again, i could do without RHCP and Rage).

    Not at all.
    I was serious.
    I think that picture is quite humorous.
