That sucks to hear that about BSS. I just saw them in Atlanta and it was a really good show. Maybe if they get a couple of paydays they will get back together for a festival circuit, but they are all probably moving on to their own projects. I guess I will never get to see Pacific Theme live, that sucks.
I do like your picks cheez (minus the Pumpkins because I have never seen a good live show of theirs, too much Corgan whining)

Here's my list:
1. Wilco 2. Sufjan Stevens 3. The Arcade Fire 4. Of Montreal (late night) 5. Ted Leo and the Pharmacists 6. The Hold Steady 7. The Postal Service 8. Spoon 9. Feist 10. Daft Punk (not gonna happen, but would be so awesome)
Now that I've seen Radiohead, I really don't care who's the headliner. That said, someone like The Who or David Bowie would be pretty cool. Is Wilco big enough for a headliner slot?
Flaming Lips SCI David Bowie Gabby la la sean lennon Ben Harper Phish (think that stands for about everyone) The Postal Service Shpongle (probaly no chance) The Allman Brothers Band Bright Eyes Islands Ween The Cure Gnarls Barkley Trey Anastasio Moby
Im sure I could think of more if I put more effort into this.
First time I saw them was at the first moe.down. They kicked off the festival and were such a good time! Plus, I'd like to see some more celtic-leaning artists in the festival. (Greenwich Meantime, Young Dubliners, Seven Nations, Glengarry Bhoys, etc.)

Nice to see you posting Chris!
Are you familiar with Shooglenifty? They're a celtic/bluegrass rooted band from Scotland, who have created some pretty awesome material. Everything from straight up fiddle based jams to pseudo-psychedelic atmospherics. Great stuff.
Thanks, Ryan, it's nice to be seen. The Forum's been a little quiet lately and I've got lots of free time so I thought that I'd actually start posting here, too.
I'm not familiar with Shoglenifty but I'll definitely check them out. Most of that kind of music I find at Irish and Scottish festivals because I don't have a whole lot of other inlets. I'm such a sucker for fiddles and songs about women and drinking and death...
I don't think so. At the smaller Lollapalooza they were offered a headlining slot and turned it down. I couldn't imagine them being offered or taking one at Bonnaroo.
For my ten, I don't know if I can bring it to 10, so I'll put a bigger group and then try to bold my top ten.
1) Arcade Fire 2) Arctic Monkeys 3) Badly Drawn Boy 4) Black Keys 5) Gnarls Barkley - missed at ACL 6) Incubus 7) The Killers 8) Kanye West 9) Muse - amazing live, would do very well at Roo 10) My Morning Jacket - how can they not come back? 11) Nickel Creek 12) NMA 13) Primus 14) Pearl Jam - its time 15) Robert Randolph 16) Sigur Ros 17) String Cheese Incident - farewell show 18) Sufjan Stevens - beautiful music, great contrast 19) The White Stripes 20) The Who - timeless 21) Neil Young - " 22) John Fogerty - " 23) The Mars Volta 24) Dave Gilmour/Roger Waters/whateverPF -
1)Pearl Jam 2)Umphreys McGee 3)John Butler Trio 4)Les Claypool 5)Derek Trucks Band 6)Xavier Rudd 7)The Wood Brothers (saw them thursday night last year and they were AMAZING) 8)Jack Johnson 9) MMW (with john scofield would be nice) 10)Galactic
John: We don't even understand our own music Spider: It doesn't, does it matter whether we understand it? At least it'll give us . . . strength John: I know but maybe we could get into it more if we understood it
1)Rocco Deluca and the Burden 2)Jack Johnson 3)Ben Harper 4)Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians 5)Allman Brothers Band 6)Brian Wilson 7)Junior Brown 8)Derek Trucks Band w/Susan Tedeski 9)Jeff Beck 10)Ratdog
