    its not semantics at all. there was no death at the festival and I don't appreciate the spread of false info. It was not at the festival NOR was it at our onsite camping. It was offsite at some Un-permitted private land.

    Just curious, and you can tell me it's none of my fucking business... will the off-site people be held responsible for that deal becaue of the unpermitted issue? I know alot of people that live close to the fest were offering rooms, etc here in the local ads, and I'm sure they'ld think twice about that knowing they could be held responsible, no? Like I said, you can say, "Noneyofuckin'bizness" if y'ant.

    I have no idea - I would assume in general that most parents would sue. I would assume the police would investigate. who knows.

    I kinda gathered his drug use was no secret. He liked living on the edge in his highs, so it would seem unfair if the people who were kind enough to provide a place for him to camp, were to face punishment for something they had no control over. Very sad indeed. Thanks Dani~

    let's say somebody got shot at coachella, is driven by ambulence to a hospital, where they later die, does that mean no one died at Coachella, cause 'actually' they died at a hospital? even if one DID ever die at Coachella, paramedics wouldn't declare the person dead until they arrived at a hospital anyway...

    in MY opinion, if what killed him was taken on festival grounds and/or he had to be carried out by friends at the end of the night, he died at Coachella...

    unless the confetti was made of concrete or metal, this seems to be a pointless statement... over a long enough period of time, all carbon-based materials are biodegradable...

    in my experience, most confetti is made of PAPER... since when is paper NOT biodegradable? sure, it may be processed to biodegrade QUICKER, but that doesn't really mean anything... even that shitty plastic-type confetti will biodegrade at some point, and probably long before next year's fest (although with the lack of moisture in the indio area this could be argued)...

    FACT: A Churro has been known to provide the nourishment necessary in order to sustain energy levels needed for dancing and at times, basic survival at Coachella. I have recently discovered a place here that's very close to home. (Too close, maybe.) They make authentic and fresh churros to order. Regular, strawberry, caramel, and vanilla filled flavors are offered. I will currently be testing these churros for their ability to help me sustain and survive until Coachella 2009. BTW...So far, the caramel filled has proven itself to be damned fuckin' tasty! (I'll be the chubby ol' lady runnin' around Coach in 2009!)

    He walked out. He was fine for a while after leaving the festival, not sure exactly how many hours but I know that he was conscious and put himself to bed. Died in his sleep I do believe--most opiate ODs take several hours to actually depress the respiratory system enough to become fatal.

    They missed about which artists have played more than once over the same weekend. That would be Dave Grohl in 2002 with Foo Fighters and Queens of the stone age, and Maynard in 1999 with A Perfect Circle and Tool.

    When Ben died after attending Coachella, it was from a drug overdose. If ingested at Coachella, would that lead to a lawsuit for GV?

    From the postings previously, it sounds like he needed an intervention from a long history of drug abuse & no one stepped up to the bat. When he hit bottom, it was death.

    Maybe something more can be done at Coachella 2009 to spread awareness or prevent such tragedies - and for this board to do less promotion of drug abuse.

    Take care of your Coachella friends, not by supplying and covering up, but by prevention and having the balls to say "no."

    Instead of just denying & saying it happened on someone else's property, it was in fact Coachella-related. Ben's death is an alert to GV to be more pro-active. One way is by the moderator of this message board to delete postings of illegal drug activity.

    Fuck you, Gay. Ben never used this board for any drug procurement. It's a goddamn music festival, people are going to do drugs. Should the Olympics be held responsible for every single instance of someone injuring themselves off their property in the private residence they'd rented to attend?

    Know who's to blame for Ben's death? BEN. He knew the risks and he fucked up, and these are the costs. Not Coachella, not the message board, not his friends, nobody. The problem with this country is trying to foist the blame for other peoples' actions away from where it rightfully belongs.

    that's a good point. you guys make it sound like drugs are a necessity.
    they're not. do drugs, i dont care, but make it a point to tell me how cool you are and list the drugs you take, shit, that's annoying.

    we cant blame this board for a death, but we can point out that this board promotes drugs abuse way too much.

    for the record: three Coachellas attended, no drugs abused.
