    Default Can for Coachella

    A Can reunion at Coachella would be absolutely spectacular. I haven't heard anything about them for so long I don't know if it's even a possibility, but nonetheless it would be cool if it did happen.

    I am neither foxy, nor a lady.

    They were amazing, I agree, but the guitarist, Michael Karoli, died in '01. Add to that the fact that the band hasn't played together since 1991, and it seems unlikely.

    I was kidding. They're both crazy about them, Can was both of their #1 Greatest Bands of All Time in Marco's thread.

    A great idea, too bad it can't happen (not trying to be sarcastic). CAN would have been a cool late-night Mojave set.
