Compare lineups. Tennessee gets better music than LA WTF is up with that.
Back in the day it was THE FESTIVAL in the US but that ended after the 3rd one. Sasha and Digweed are spinning in Tennessee and not LA? The Police are playing in Tennessee and not LA? We get fookin Bjork who's last good music she was with the Sugar Cubes (no offense to Bjork because the cubes rocked)? We get a RHCP's who are now a pop music sensation no better than Brittney or Justin? Thats messed up. If anything causes Rage to cancel there will be riots of bored wasted youths.
Why no Police?
I can only figure the Police want to rape us for money when they come play an arena or stadium figuring unlike a band like Black Sabbath or the Dead if they played here once most folks who saw them would stay home. But that is WRONG. I might stay home but the majority of people going to the stadium concert wouldn't be found at Coachella. People who love Bruce Springsteen, The Cars, the Who, Dave Matthews aren't quite the people who wil be at Indio. The Police had 3 great albums then they went pop. So anyone who thinks Synchronicity is the shit is really a wimpy music wuss. Let me state the WORST Police Song EVER!.....Every Breath You Take! Yep. FACTOID!!!!!
BTW Coachella could improve the lineup if they weren't cheap asses and actually ponied up for a Space Island Stage now that would be the shit all the West Coast Breaks DJ's getting off.
I miss the good old days when they talent was off the boards vs looking like they were desperate to fill slots. I have to think it's a management issue vs acts not wanting to play here.
