I don't know, I'm pretty sure that her 50 minute set at 2 in the afternoon is going to go down in Coachella history.

This is a good argument of why he could POSSIBLY do Coachella, but what makes him doing Coachella more likely than Glasto in your opinion?
Glasto's a big, conventional sort of thing. Coachella is, comparatively, still young, exciting and about getting the "new" thing. That seems like Bowie's bag. Plus, singing in dry desert air would be easier than the damp British nights.
And yeah, he also lives in the US.

He does have some semential value when it comes to Glastobury . I remember reading him saying he was at one of the early 1970s Glastos' and he camped right infront of the pyramind stage....BUT the first coachella rumor I have ever heared was while standing at the barrcade of the main stage all day over hearing that Bowie is going show up since the logic was " Nine Inch Nails is playing.......David Bowie CONFIRMED!"
FWIW, After the 1/11 Purity Ring show, my friend ended up talking to Megan and asked if they planned to tour the West Coast soon (we both live in San Jose). She said they're playing Coachella and a handful of other dates in April.

No, he is correct. This year has the potential to be the biggest Coachella line up yet, or the most disappointing. We have legitimate rumours (if ever there was an oxymoron, there it is) this year about The Rolling Stones, Daft Punk, and David Bowie. 3 acts that have been pipe dreams and rumours have popped up from nowhere and we had no real reason to believe. While this year, there is very good evidence any of the 3 of them will be there. I personally only expect one of those 3 to be on the line up and highly doubt the other too, the rumours have given people reason to believe they may actually end up on the line up. Toss this in with other possible headliners discussed including NIN and Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and subs including Blur, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Phoenix, Sigur Ros and more... this line up seems like it has the potential to be far too stacked be reasonable.
Of course we may end up having RHCP, Mumford & Sons and The Killers as headliners. So it also stands to reason this may be the most disappointing Coachella line up yet.
Bro...... lil bro.... NO FUCKING GEEZERS HEADLINING. Maybe Bowie could swing it, as he's David Fucking Bowie.... but what in the hell makes you think Neil Young and Crazy Horse could headline Coachella without comparing Coachella to lesser festivals that Neil Young and Crazy Horse have headlined? I find it disturbing that you think it's okay to barf this shit up on this thread. Have you personally seen Neil Young play in the last five years? It's truly an abomination. He's ruining his great songs with old age. Farm Aid is fucking tragic. Geezer rockers have their place. Neil Young has Farm Aid. Eric Clapton has Crossroads. Ozzy has Ozzfest. If you really want to see these guys stink up a festival, by all means, GO TO THEIR FESTIVALS, and stop bringing them up as if they could be headliners at Coachella. Thank you.
