    He was a lot of fun to see at Epicenter 2010. I think the crowd would enjoy him.

    Does Eminem ever perform without lip synching or using a backing track? Just wondering, as all the times I've seen him on television this was the case.

    I have seen Eminem three times and he always raps live. He may have an actual track playing in the background, but he's always rapping live. I have a couple of recordings, recent and old, where he has no backing track at all.

    Twice when I saw him, he killed it; once he was awful, but that was right after he released Encore and that is, by far, his worst album.

    I would enjoy it if he were at Coachella, but I am not sure a lot of people would agree with me. If he has a live band backing him and a few solid guests, then yes, for sure.

    Again, not sure many will agree though.

    I would actually really like to see him someday. I wonder if his shows are still as good now that he is sober.

    I support this. I mean ya, your gonna have a lot of people whine about how he isn't Coachella enough, but still bomb music is bomb music. If he would avoid preforming songs off the later part of his career that would be ideal.

    I think Paul Tollett alluded to Jay-Z being the only rap artist that could fit the headlining bill at Coachella. I am a big Eminem fan and even I see what he means.

    I personally would love it, but I understand why people don't think Coachella is best suited for him.

    I don't think you understand what you'll get. This is not the marshal mathers of old. I walked over at voodoo for a peek and saw a flat, limited emotion, actor performing a show. This wasn't the punk ass, fuck you if you don't like me white boy, ripping out fresh rhymes. I've watched plenty of artist get sober and the truth is it takes 3-5 years before they start reclaiming the stage presence they had before addiction or during it. It takes a while to feel safe pushing yourself to that emotional state, and he doesn't appear to have it yet. Don't know if he ever will. I won't even go into any other reasons he fails as a headliner.
    Wow, 12 step meetings at Coachella, who knew? SOBERCHELLA.COM

    I'm a reasonable man, get off my case....

    Honestly I dont think he meant that, unless he doesn't even know who Outkast is (or even Dre at that). I just think he was trying to show some support for Jay, since people were flipping out that he selected Jay-Z as a headliner. All that hip-hopchella and everyone is gonna get robbed and raped by thugs gobbilty gook.

    Eminem does use backing tracks now, on almost all of his songs, whether you can tell or not. Everything I used to love about this guy is gone. He's dead to me.

    Can I get a time machine back to high school when people actually though he was semi good because of his wife bashing comedy raps instead of a reinvented Snow and I may possibly consider agreeing with this but I wouldnt hold your breath.

    "Detox" Live ft. Dr. Dre + Eminem = Headliner ... which i am all for because it (like Jay Z) would offer me a chance to see something I would never go see elsewhere

    I have always appreciated Eminem's recording history. But I have been consistently underwhelmed with the live performances. The few headline shows I have witnessed were killed by the number of guests, intermissions and cartoons/video and the lack of Eminem. It was more other stuff than Eminem. The Eminem bits were pretty good, it was the other stuff that felt more like show filler.
    If he gave me 90% Eminem then I would be interested. I don't get why he needs guests? It would be like going to see Radiohead headline, having The Liars play a couple of Radiohead's tunes, RH play two songs, then Beck gives us a acoustic version of another RH song, some video, a few more RH songs then Bat For Lashes play a RH song.
    I wanna see Eminem perform not some crappy rappers/street performers/videos.

    Eminem would be a step below Jack Johnson for me. He is a legit headliner (probably more so than most of this years HLs), but I've never been into him at all.

    Of course there is more than 1 stage going at a time.

    He would be way better than Jay Z or Kanye i think and it would be cool if dre or Snoop played with him.

    I feel the same way, I was such a huge fan in the early days. Can't really blame him though, it's hard to keep that hungry, underground mentality after experiencing that much success.

    no you're wrong.

    He may not be the best option for Coachella and you may not necessarily like his work, but to call him "garbage" is fucking idiotic.

    Dude has respect from hip hop's elite. Jay-Z, Nas, Andre 3000, Black Thought, Kanye, Q-Tip, Mos Def... shit even old school legends like Rakim, Grandmaster Caz, DMC, Chuck D and countless others have all credited him for being one of the best at what he does.

    Yeah he's released some bad material, but what emcee hasn't?

    I'd rather see Eminem in the headlining spot than see some douchebag like Sage Francis anywhere on the poster.

    I felt this way until I heard relapse. Even that album was kinda wishy washy. I like recovery though. On Encore and during his Benzino battles and work with 50/G-Unit, his lyricism fell off.

    If you listen to Encore, then listen to Relapse and Recovery, you can see he has gone back to focussing on his lyrics.

    That being said, I can see him at lolla, but not Coachella.

    My guess is that IF we get a hip hop/rap artist as a headliner, we are getting the Beasties. I know everyone argues over if they are still a headliner and whatnot, but they are gonna be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, have a new album, and Coachella would be the perfect spot for them to make their return.

    I'd be cool with the Beasties if they don't spend half their set talking politics like they did in 2003.
