    And boo to GV for giving in to what looks like desperation and settling for the fucking Peppers. I'd have waited another month for the lineup if it meant a significant upgrade over goddamn Dani California.
    This.

    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.

    How is it bailing them out if they were in negotiations for months? They had a year to come up with a headliner and gave us RHCP. Please, Tollett booked exactly who he wanted on Sunday.

    Exactly. They have played twice before for a reason.

    "Negotiations for months" could mean a million different scenarios took place. That sentence means nothing.

    Sound City
    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 don't see how Muse is a "back up plan." They're one of the biggest bands in the world right now.

    I'm just happy it wasnt Green Day.
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    Well, this might come as a shock to you but there are people who actually know what they're talking about around here. And Dre/Snoop absolutely replaced Sabbath at the last minute. But I suppose since I don't have a link to prove it it's just a rumor.

    It's the 2010-2013 turnaround that's the issue. If they had never played Coachella they would be a priority.

    Plus they've played SoCal every year for 5 years running.

    My sincere hope is Nick Cave is on the Outdoor at the same time as RHCP on the main. I don't hate them. But it's not something I'm putting in the schedule unless I still have energy and there's no one else on.

    It was serious. They were in talks up until the middle of last week or so. Got it? I know that for a fact.

    Here's some more proof:
    http://www.rockcellarmagazine.com/20...oachella-2013/

    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?

    They got fleeced in the 1960's and have been very shrewd about money ever since.

    You gotta admit though...Kanye closing the fest out was a very defiant move by GV. I'm sure this is what spennyb meant.

    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.

    I agree. As great as all the bands I saw were the last 3 years at Coachella, each weekend felt like it was building to a brilliant and unpredictable main stage conclusion. Gorillaz, Kanye, and Dre and Snoop were all epic. It isn't even a knock on the Chili's to say that they won't be able to measure up to those performances...they just won't.
