So no one believes the dude when he says they were in negotiations for months? He did seem a little defensive - talking demographics like Bumblebee and all.
This is like Jane's Addiction bailing them out in 2001. They go to their friends in times of need. Don't we all.
But yes, I'll be with Nick.
I also find RHCP to be a toss up between Killers/Muse as well.
Saying that RHCP was somehow the only choice is a ridiculous statement.
Having Sigur Ros into Bjork one night would have also been a jaw-dropper - even for me.
I'm just happy it wasnt Green Day.

Here's some more proof:
Stones wanted to wait until after their shows to get a base price for what kind of money they could make. After taking that into account the negotiations began around the new year and lasted a couple weeks. There are a lot more details I am not going to get into because it's not my place.

Is that all the Rolling Stones are about these days is money? I mean these fucks will be buried in solid gold caskets for christ's sake. They've got enough money to make the next 20 generations of their family millionaires. I'm was really hoping they would do it but now I'm actually glad they're not if thats all they're really about.
The answer I am going to go with is a lot of bullshit filler to make people pay attention to something trivial.
I mean, it's fucking Rolling Stone. Nick, really? You're gonna cite RS?
Pearl Jam could've been booked for less. Employ a fucking focus group next time if you're going to book-end a lineup like that with the equivalent of sonic shit a year in advance.
I'd take Metallica over RHCP. And I don't even like Metallica. I just know I would be more entertained.
