    Well, at least he's a good singer, a fantastic songwriter, the frontman of one of the best live bands today who has made several acclaimed and critically sucessful albums.

    Even if he is a twat, he at least is a twat that makes good fucking music. And even if he is, he's still not nearly as big a twat as Liam Gallagher, Axl Rose, Justin Bieber, Courtney Love, Chris Brown, Fred Durst, Geoff Tate, Dave Mustaine, Kanye West, Ted Nugent, Morrisey, Lars Ulrich, Scott Stapp, Gene Simmons, 50 Cent, Robin Thicke, Ike Turner, Bono, Eric Clapton (dude's a hardcore racist from what I've heard), Gary Glitter, Ian Watkins, Tim Lambesis, Scott Weiland, and Phil Spector.

    I do feel like he overdid it. Seems like he's trying force the social outcast aesthetic too hard. I feel that Win comes off genuine most of the time. Should you air your personal grievances during a headlining festival slot? I dunno. Didn't ruin the set for me. Then again I'm an AF fanboy so I guess I don't count.

    it is a little odd to choose (perhaps even request) to play a festival that has a lot of non-instrument playing bands and caters to VIPs, only to take a stab at the non-instrument playing bands and catering to VIPs. I understand there's other sides to Coachella too, but it's part of the package. it sounds like he might prefer to be somewhere like High Sierra.

    His expectations were probably way off. They have been evolving along with the festival and each time they played there have been a nice balance of interesting bands. Even 2011 was a tasteful line-up, EDM included. With the expansion of VIP and the clone prog house djs, it was probably disheartening. Tough titties.

    it may have been somewhat of a reaction to the absurd number of guest celebrities running around back stage this year.

    It's just the way the festival is and he should just get over it or give Coachella a large break. There is a new kind of confidence, as opposed to the early joyous wide eyed wonderment, in this band that has lead Win being more comfortable to voice opinions. Yeah it could be insecurity, but I believe he's disappointed. He may have to learn to think twice before pouting.

    Win should've known what he was getting himself into, Coachella has become the "cool thing to do."

    I spoke to multiple people over the weekend who had very little knowledge of the lineup and were just there to party.

    When they first headlined they were pretty new to headlining festivals so it probably seemed more exciting to him, especially since from the beginning of their career Coachella booked them and slowly promoted them. Now they've headlined just about every major festival in the world and he's become jaded. It happens to every big act.

    I don't think he cares about VIP or djs. This is all just his fabricated image, and he is just pandering to "music geeks."

    I would find Win less of a twat if I knew that he was snorting tons and tons of blow before walking on stage in that makeup.

    I think it also has to do with whatever the scene was backstage that night. Calvin Harris drew such a massive shitshow to the mainstage, the crowds for Beck and AF were like a quarter that size. I am so sure Calvin was a massive douchebag backstage with a huge entourage, tons of special requests, all that bullshit.

    Honestly, you should not expect much from artists. They are people as well and people sometimes suck. Your opinion and/or experience may differ from the next. I like his music and that of his fellow artists in AF and really don't care about if he is a nice guy or not. I would probably end up hating every artist, writer, director, etc. that I love if i knew how they were in "real life." Just enjoy the music.

    It is ridiculous that VIP has a section just to themselves at Coachella and that section even covers a portion of the main stage, that is ridiculous. I wish Rage Against the Machine would come back to Coachella (yeahhh i know) and we could TAKE THE POWER BACK! hahaah Coachella 2007 baybay!

    Take out the VIP section at the main stages....not cool Coachella not cool at all.

    and never allow the Beibs in again
