I want to see them headline that day, than The Killers. How about it?

Not Coachella-friendly. They are more the ACL/Telluride/Bonnaroo-type. Which they have already headlined. Nice try, please try again.

oh well, this is my first time to coachella. I have only gone to ACL and South by Southwest, since I live in Texas.

Definitely not a Coachella act. And, their CD was not inspiring at all. I like Led Zeppelin, I like Alison Krauss and Union Station. They could have stayed home on this one.

Then you've got a pretty big pair of balls calling for a replacement headliner already, rookie.

I saw them last year, not at a festival but their own show. Their CD was OK, but they were AWESOME live. Definitely one of the best shows I've seen, and I'd support them being at Coachella. For those of you who don't think they fit - um ... Dwight Yoakam? Nickel Creek? How about this year's Ryan Bingham? Even Conor Oberst & Mystic Valley Band cross the line from folk into straight-up country on occasion. RP + AK definitely are the type of band that Coachella tends to include these days whether we like it or not.
Having said that, who are you, malcolmjamalburdensome to decide whether someone is qualified to make a suggestion on the message board? Just because you camp here doesn't give you ownership by adverse possession or squatting rights. Let people do what they want.

they put on an amazing show when I saw them in SF but I don't see them fitting in as a coachella headliner at all. they've bluegrass, and it just wouldn't appeal enough to the young coachella crowd

I don't think they're big enough to headline Saturday.

sure. whatever gets the killers out of that position.

Robert Plant with Alison Krauss is happening at coachella...except they are doing an acoustic show playing a greatest hits of Led Zeppelin.

I saw them at bonnaroo last summer. The show was pretty good, but the Zeppelin songs made it all worth it. He did some slower bluegrassy versions of a few old songs, but his last Zeppelin song was Battle of Evermore...he wailed, the band rocked, it was epic. During that song everyone around me was either crying tears of joy or simply beaming with happiness. Great way to experience the sunset.

But, regardless, I agree that they are not ideal for the saturday headliner.

What YOU want? What about what I want? What the fuck makes you so goddamn special, punk?

I think they would be a great replacement for Winehouse. It would be in the same kind of vibe and well, they're better.

I'll pass

03-14-2009, 11:33 PM
seen it. boring. next.

No, they're not headliners, but how the fuck are they not Coachella friendly? They could replace Winehouse's spot or be a line below her on the poster, easily. Some artists transcend boundaries, like Booker T or...um, Prince, who otherwise aren't Coachella-friendly. Is Al Green Bonnarroo-friendly? No, but who's complaining?

Plant/Krauss isn't even close to headlining, but perfect for Coachella. It's not like the festival doesn't have country or Western music ever.
