    green day has been asked in the past and declined, not sure that will change in the future.

    Haha really? That's good I guess but they might change their mind. I have seen Green Day live twice and they are great but I think they are a terrible fit for Coachella.

    As for Pearl Jam I haven't seen them live - I have a couple bootlegs - but I don't think their fans would be as annoying as Green Day's. Let's put it this way, THEY'RE NOT POP PUNK. Anyway it would make sense to have them there next year - 20th anniversary of their polo fields show (as noted in the campground magazine), and they plan to have a new album out next year.

    I think he is saying Green Day fans are bros and PJ fans are hardcore. I was going to respond the same way but after reading it again, I gave him the benefit of the doubt.

    Pearl Jam's contemporary fan base is in no way bro, but their heyday fanbase was proto-bro. It's a more complicated issue than one might imagine.

    Captn, I may start a thread; if I don't, please feel free to yourself.

    If you don't get around to it this week, I may start one later on or around the weekend.

    Like the phrase "sell out", BROS are something I never seen given a concrete definition or a thorough list of which bands that it applies.

    What is your first language? Seriously--is it Latvian or something?

    As far as classic rock festival headliners, what about Joe Cocker? He totally pwned Woodstock '94.

    My one experience seeing Nick Cave in a festival setting was in '94 when he was part of the traveling Lollapalooza. It was horrific. He went on at like 2:00 in the afternoon in front of a bunch of Cincinnati shitkickers who were there to see Smashing Pumpkins and Beastie Boys. Poor guy.

    The reasoning for PJ never having headlined has to be one of the stupidest things I've ever heard/read.

    Wow. Thanks for all the comments. I was wondering about a list like this a couple of weeks ago and between the article and all of these opinions, it's a great buncha stuff to chew on. So glad I posted it!

    agreed. possibly a reason why it took Radiohead so long to play again???

    and Elvis Costello has played SoCal DURING Coachella the last 2 years, i doubt he'll ever play.

    11/21 - Pearl Jam - Viejas Arena

    Page three and nobody has mentioned The Jam or Roxy Music?


    Both trump most of the 80's stuff on TomAZ's list.

    Paul Weller has already played and that’s about it for me. Roxy Music expired back in 2006. Watching him shuffle to remake/remodel on his recent olympia tour saddened me.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

They spent what felt like a half an hour tuning their guitars on stage before launching into their set (which was cut short because of the tuning) and then everything sounded out of synch. Even my beloved Marquee Moon. Took my years to be able to listen to their album again.

    Some of these suggestions are bringing back a lot of great memories. I can only come up with three new ones.

    Robyn Hitchcock: Saw him open for REM on their Green tour and he handled an arena venue surprisingly well.
    Stan Ridgeway (or Wall of Voodoo): Also great back in the day but I haven't really followed him recently.
    The Residents: Would need to be a nighttime set but still would be cool to see them at Coachella.

    The Jam were great and I guess Foxton and Weller have been amicable lately, so that's conceivable I guess.

    Roxy Music - meh unless they bring Eno. but fuck that let's just get Eno to headline!
