oh yeah, i remember. it was my birfday.
that's not going to be the norm going forward, and given the choice between tool in an arena and tool at coachella, coachella wins erry time.
Massive Attack was an amazing opener. I didn't personally hear anyone boo them but it's hardly surprising. Every year I encounter drunk, high, inconsiderate douchebags at the festival. It just happens that in 2006 a number of them were yelling TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL! I doubt any of the members of Massive Attack lost any sleep over it. They're a UK band, and it was probably a nice change of pace not having the hecklers throw urine at them.
Less time for sets, not enough transition time between equipment changes for bands, sometimes tech problems with visuals/soundcheck. Having seen some of the main headliners and smaller bands at smaller venues and Coachella, there are definitely some performances that felt a little more disorganized at the festival.
I mean, Gorillaz for fuck's sake was a nightmare, then I saw them later that year at the Gibson with all of the guests who were supposed to perform with them at Coachella, it was a show you just didn't want to end in addition to it not getting cut off on a somber note.

1. Longest setlist since '01.
2. Most talkative I've ever seen Maynard, he was fucking with the crowd between every song.
3. Tom Morello coming out and delivering what I'm sure most consider the most talked about live version of Lateralus. He answered a god damn phone during his solo.
4. Frying your face off, turning around and seeing the lasers go further than yours eyes could see.
5. The Roots opened.
6. After the show you could mosey on over and watch John Paul Jones play Zepplin tunes with ?uestlove on the drum kit. And if that's not your thing, The Black Keys and The Flaming Lips were also playing.
yea i dont even know anymore
For me it's much more of a case by case basis and where they are on the festival schedule. Yet another reason to hate GV policy of releasing it a couple dozen hours before the festival begins.
I could also name a handful of acts where I actually prefer SHORTER sets(Bob Dylan...)
sounds unreal!!! I am trying to picture it all......... DAMN!!!
*fingers crossed, fuckers*
Considering APC/Puscifer is playing Lolla Chile on 4-6/7 it's safe to say the Tool will be closer to home. And if Tool does play, I predict May May doing an unprecedented triple-dip.
Also, Deftones would be sick late night in a tent, or opening for Tool.
I like how they put Tool and Deftones on different days, fuckers.
"How long will this last, this delicious feeling of being alive, of having penetrated the veil which hides beauty and the wonders of celestial vistas? It doesn't matter, as there can be nothing but gratitude for even a glimpse of what exists for those who can become open to it."
I remember back in '06 after Tool's performance, they posted a blog entry on their site entitled "CoacHELLa" where BMB basically talked about how much of miserable experience the whole thing was. This leads me to believe that they wouldn't really want to play again, but I will always hold out hope for a return.
