    Waits > Reed or Dylan

    Petty or Elton would be better though..

    Tom Waits is amazing and very creative. Glad I got to see him at the Orpheum in PHX. I don't think he is headline Coachella material though. I don't even think he is festival material. Small theatre show is incredible though.

    You're right. He did say that however his sister more recently said in an interview that he has considered bonnaroo. As much as his sound and style would be perfect for an outdoor theater coachella performance, the fact that he hates playing festivals in addition to the fact that he hates playing in california makes it extremely unlikely.

    Thelastgreatman was his debut on the board. It currently has just over 10,000 posts. Then came rotationslimwang, which also has over 10,000 posts. Now, we have Monklish. With his 3 accounts combined, he is the second highest poster on the board. Just below Supre, but just above Amy.
    amy really has that many posts? thats a surprise to me.

    Most of us should agree that having Elton would be pretty spectacular. Let's not forget Simon & Garfunkel either.

    Elton John performing Tumbleweed Connection in its entirety would be legendary. And unfortunately scoffed at by most on here.

    I'm sure it would be, just like the late addition of Prince came most likely as a shock seeing him take the main slot over Portishead, but once all was said and done, most were left in awe. Elton could pull it off as well if given the chance.

    So you're retracting your original statement of this thread now? Should we just close it now? Man you are shitting all over this board.

    Off topic: was gonna make a joke about diarrhea (couldn't remember the name of a medication) then found an article saying you can die from diarrhea. I find that fucking hilarious.

    I think the large crowd and that fact that some people in the crowd may not be too familiar with his music or style may ruin the whole exprience. The Orpheum Theatre show was amazing, I wasn't even too familiar with him. I knew of him, heard him, but never really paid attention. Happened to get a ticket last minute from my cousin and it was well worth it. The crowd interacts with his show, which makes it almost comedy. I don't think the Coachella crowd would provide the same experience, I may be wrong... Just my opinion.

    Tom Waits' manager/agent used to be Stuart Ross, one of the original creators of the touring Lollapalooza fest. His comment was that "...Tom Waits doesn't play outdoors, period."

    Of course, money changes everything.

    The whole reason that we were graced with Leonard Cohen's show last year, in addition to his national tour, was because Leonard's money manager lost Cohen's life-savings for him. If he didn't go broke, we would have never seen Leonard on a stage again.

    What's mine is mine and what Stu gets is his own. I put my surplus in Millstone cans and bury them out back. Go ahead and try to bankrupt me like poor Lenny, I'll still have my cans. Never going to play your hippy Easter soiree. Lenny should have had Herb managing his bankroll. It's easier to trust a man when you share the same name, you know.
