I had heard RHCP's name dropped to me by some backstage folks last year while eating breakfast at the camping buffet. I didn't want it to be true then, I hope it's not true now, but who knows at this point...
Argh! Stuff like this usually turns out to be true. At least we'll get Afp out of this.
Actually, that makes a lot of sense. Flea could easily pull double duty with Red Hot Chili Peppers AND Atoms For Peace.
I have much less issue with Coachella booking a sh*tty headliner than I do with Bonnaroo pulling the same thing, simply because I know there will be something awesome going on at the same time. Last year for the Black Keys (who I don't actually think are sh*tty at all), you could have gone to see Explosions in the Sky or M83. So if they do book RHCP (which I am taking with a grain of salt), whatever. Just means I can see something else cool without as much of a crowd.
Valid point. Coachella always has someone worthwhile playing opposite a headliner.
