    I watched Searching for Sugarman the Wednesday before leaving for Coachella, that documentary is amazing. Check it out if you haven't already. Rodriguez was probably my top 1 or 2 performer I was looking forward to all weekend. When he came out, I think his daughter helped him to the mic, and the crowd went simply wild. He wasn't moving well - his daughter gave the crowd the love symbol since the crowd was going wild. A very touching moment. His mic didn't seem to be turned up enough, it was somewhat hard to hear him. Also, Social Distortion was playing on the main stage, so their sound was bleeding over it seemed like. Still an honor to be able to see him perform. One of my favorites of the weekend.

    Did he play "Cause?" That song is so desolate. I teared up to it the other day. Very strange.

    Has anyone else had the feeling that he doesn’t really want to tour and that it’s really his daughters pushing him thought this as a last ditch effort to pick up a few bucks?

    I totally thought about that. The way he was guided on stage he just seemed lost and reluctant. It made me sad. It was like he was her puppet.

    My understanding is that he's partially blind, which was why he needed help and was guided on stage. That could be why the mic was bright red too, so he could see it more easily? I only noticed it at his set.

    Yeah at the beginning of "I wonder" the bassist was playing and the song was sounding good then Rodriguez just stopped told everyone not to play and did the song himself. I don't understand why cuz it was sounding good... I got videos of it all, just waiting for them to finish uploading and I'll post them.

    So, how was weekend 2? I don't think I heard a full song during the full first half of the set weekend 1 and didn't go back weekend 2. It was good to see him still, too bad about the sound though.

    Was this the closest thing to a 2013 meltdown?

    Weekend 1 it was the 2013 meltdown. So disappointing, it was a shambles.

    How was it weekend 2 guys? Tell me redemption was forthcoming

    Redemption indeed. I posted this in another thread:

He also stopped midway through the song, sat there for a while, then started over....not sure if he forgot where he was or what. But I decided to give him another shot weekend 2 and I gotta say...he was 100 times better. Not only did it sound great, but he performed much better...he didnt have to restart any songs, he seemed more lively, overall I'm really glad I went again. It was much more of what I was expecting.

    I agree. I skipped him weekend 1, but caught the last few songs of his weekend 2 set. He did a good job, and the crowd was really digging it. Lots of applause and he seemed sincerely touched/grateful by the ovation at the end of his set. He soaked it in for a while before he split.

    Definitely redeemed himself. I heard his weekend 1 set was very bad due to sound issues but I wasn't about to miss him weekend 2, even while knowing that. One of my favorite sets all weekend. Just seeing him walk on stage was a gift. I was up front and his mic was a little low the first 2 songs but they seemed to have fixed it after that. So glad I didn't miss him. The band seemed to be really honored playing up there with him also. They all took a bow at the end of their set while the applause lasted for minutes.

    Glad to hear he killed W2. W1 set did suck sadly. Love him though and hope I can see him again.
