The Stone Roses
In Living Color
The Velvet Underground (though wouldn't be expecting much from anyone but Cale)
Faces (A much more palatable way to give Rod Stewart a chance at the Coachella stages - ? Is Ronnie Lane still alive, if so doesn't he suffer from advanced MD - would be great to hear that Carnival Barker voice of his)
The Talking Heads
Midnight Oil (surprised not mentioned more in these forums..seems a very Coachella oriented band)
REM with Bill Berry (too soon after breakup, I know, but God I hope they Headline Coachella in next 5 years...one of the three or four acts I most want to see that haven't played Coachella before)
Mott The Hoople (don't know if even viable, how many members are still alive...Ian Hunter has performed recently but is really getting up there, 72 I think).
Procol Harum (again, don't even know how many band members still alive...but it's a wish list)
Smashing Pumpkins (though not an end all be all for me, saw them multiple times in their prime)
Had the opportunity to see the reunion tour at the Knitting Factory but missed it. Taught me one important lesson...never miss an opportunity to see a band you like, if you miss it, you may never see it again. Should have learned this lesson with the Ramones.
spice girls closing the sahara would be a blast. don't act like it wouldn't be.

Absolutely no chance. They'd be billed where Pulp was this year if not higher.
Definitely not higher. Pulp are way more popular, I know it's not necessarily about the 'hits', but it is somewhat and, much as I like the Roses, they have had very few. In either the UK or the US. Their popularity definitely seems to have gained since they broke up
They've already reunited though, no? Playing at OSL this August.
