I could have really gone for Sir Psycho Sexy during their 2007 set but whateves they were fucking awesome. The Black Keys arn't headlining material yet. They have 1 huge album and a ton of mediocre ones. They already played Coachella last year, riding on the popularity of that 1 huge album. Who cares, I'm going to be at Amon Tobin.
No question RHCP would put on a better Headlining set. All you fags hating on them ,,l,,
The last time I saw RHCP was Coachella 2003 and they were fucking boring. The Black Keys set last year, which by everyone else's account (except mine and Dylan's apparently) wasn't up to par, was still better than that 2003 performance by RHCP. Also, from what I hear, (like what Matt said as well as countless others) their 2007 set wasn't very good either.
RHCP has gone from having a reputation of being one of the most wild and entertaining live bands to watch to one of the dullest in the matter of a couple of years back in the late 90's. They don't put on the live shows they used to.
