I said the Stones were not playing Coachella (ever) because:
A) Someone who knows Paul Tollett personally told me three headliners and one near-headliner-scale subheadliner, none of which were the Stones
B) Someone with a history of knowing the Stones' plans told me that they had not booked any shows for 2013, likely to be the final year of touring for them, and would not do so until after their December run was complete
Person A is now saying that the Stones may be added and the Killers may be out or demoted, so I am updating my information accordingly.
When Prince headlined over Portishead, and Mystery Artist replaced Black Sabbath, Goldenvoice was "backpedaling," right? Morons.
This is the reason why it's idiotic to come in here making authoritative statements about who's headlining until it's actually on the poster. I know people who know Paul Tollett personally too. Guess what, dickheads: even what Paul thinks is going to be on the lineup isn't on the lineup when it finally comes out every fucking year. The real reason Goldenvoice is quiet about their lineup isn't just because they want it to be a surprise, it's that no one--including them--can be sure what's going to happen. To come on and claim that you know who's playing with three months left to go is idiotic as we're about to see when neither The Killers nor Muse are on there. The smart thing to do when you see that a band someone told you is going to be headlining and then they book like three nights at the Staples Center and have two shows in NY the same week as Coachella isn't to say, "My friend knows Paul Tollett therefore I am going to ignore EVERY BIT OF LOGIC IN THE FUCKING WORLD and assume that my jerk off friend--who must be an INSANELY LARGE JERK OFF since he's friends with fucking ME--is absolutely correct." It's to say, "Gee, that looks like several pieces of concrete data that absolutely contradict what I've been told. Perhaps I should take this with a grain of salt."
Tell me, is your irrationality as demonstrated here why the wife left you, Moto?
