Nice , Peaceful, quiet family outing at Coachella

A post shared by Sly Stallone (@officialslystallone) on

Sly Stallone went to Coachella to see the reunited Guns N’ Roses live with his wife Jen and looks like Arnold went with him too. The first video is Sly just arriving to the concert and of course, fans recognized him. Fans were cheering Sly and Arnold on as they make their way through the crowd.

The second video is Sly and Jen enjoying the concert. Sly is a music lover too and he goes to a lot of rock concerts. I guess that’s what he likes to do when he’s not working on movies at this time. He deserves it, though ’cause Sly is a workhorse in the movie business and he deserves a break.

Guns N’ Roses “Coachella” performance confirmed w/ Slash & Duff being part of the lineup…

Last night, the Guns N’ Roses official facebook finally confirmed their reunion and their return will be for “Coachella”. Axl himself confirmed it on his official twitter page as well. Slash and Duff McKagan also confirmed that they will definitely take part in the lineup for “Coachella”.

For the Guns N’ Roses new lineup, who is gonna be the drummer and the second guitar player? It’s looking like that Izzy and Steven are both out. Matt Sorum is out too. So the drummer is probably gonna end up being Frank Ferrer and the second guitarist is probably gonna be Richard Fortus both who were part of the previous lineup. It’s still a reunion since Axl, Duff and Slash are coming back.

Some people may not care for Guns N’ Roses anymore and they only cared for Gn’R ten years ago but give it time, y’all. I’m sure the reunited Gn’R will put on a killer set at Coachella and they will blow people’s minds again like they used to do. The reunited Guns N’ Roses will be like a bit of a throwback, a blast from the past kind of thing and that’s what it’s all about, y’all! A celebration of the Guns N’ Roses legacy. It’s gonna be a great set and I hope they stream it live on the internet so I can watch it.

Predicting the Guns N’ Roses “Coachella” set…

So Guns N’ Roses is set to headline “Coachella” this year. We all know that Slash, Axl and the guys will play all of the band’s singles and hit songs. Like I said before, I hope they throw in some non-hits in there as well.

I also have a feeling that when the reunited Gn’R finishes their set, the audience is never gonna let them leave the stage so there’s probably gonna be a lot of “encores”.

Here’s what the Guns N’ Roses “Coachella” set is gonna look like, I’ll list all the songs in no particular order:

Welcome To the Jungle
Sweet Child O’ Mine
Knocking On Heaven’s Door
November Rain
Patience
Paradise City
Don’t Cry
Civil War
You Could Be Mine
Mr. Brownstone
It’s So Easy
Live and Let Die
Yesterdays
Pretty Tied UP
Dust N’ Bones
Rocket Queen
Sympathy For The Devil (Stones cover)

And maybe they’ll throw in a brand new song or two we haven’t heard before.

I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be a killer set and will be interesting to hear what their set will sound like in LCD Surround Sound.

What would Guns N’ Roses play for their Coachella set?

Now that Slash and possibly other original members are coming back to GN’R for a headlining slot at “Coachella”, what will they play on the night of the show? Obviously, they’re gonna play all of their greatest hits. I would think they would play all the hits that Slash played on. I can see them playing songs from all Gn’R albums that night. They’ll play songs from the “Appetite” album, “GN’R Lies”, “Use Your Illusion I and II” and “The Spaghetti Incident?”. While I’m sure the band is gonna play all their hits, I hope they throw in some obscure songs from their albums aka songs that are not hits.

Will they play anything off of “Chinese Democracy”??? I don’t think so ’cause Slash didn’t play on that album. This show at Coachella is gonna be a big celebration of the original GN’R.

Regardless of who’s gonna be part of the lineup, I’m sure they’re gonna put on one sick show now that Slash is coming back finally. Trust me on that. Axl may not be as good of a singer anymore but I’m sure he’ll improve before the show ’cause he’s not gonna wanna disappoint the fans at all. It’s gonna be a great show I’m sure. Slash has always been one of my favorite guitarists of all time.

I’m sure they’re gonna stream the show live on the internet so I can’t wait to watch it. Hopefully they won’t make you pay to watch it. I’m a GN’R fan myself but only the original Gn’R. I never cared for the other guitarists. The other guitarists seemed like a GN’R tribute band to me. I’m glad the original guys are making a comeback finally.

Finally confirmed! Guns N’ Roses original reunion is happening at Coachella!

Billboard was the first to break the news that Guns N’ Roses will reunite for the next “Coachella” festival as headliners. As for those who are gonna take part in the lineup? They say Axl, Slash and Duff McKagan is definitely in. As for who the drummer is gonna be, not sure whether or not it’s gonna be Steven Adler or Matt Sorum.

Like I said before, it’s not just gonna be a one off show. They’re planning to do a North American 25 date stadium tour.

I’m sure we’ll get an official announcement on the band’s official website soon. The band themselves will tell us who’s in and who’s out on the website soon.

Will they do a new studio album as well? We’ll have to wait on that too. I’m sure the guys discussed it and if a new album will happen, I’m sure it will happen after their tour. They’ll probably end up writing stuff while they’re touring anyways ’cause that’s what a lot of bands do. Write while they’re travelling on bus or on plane. I’m pretty sure Slash already wrote a bunch of new riffs for the band. Maybe they’ll debut a few new songs nobody’s ever heard before at Coachella? I can see that happening.

Thoughts about Madonna kissing Drake on stage…

Check this out, I hate discussing these kind of stuff on my blog but I thought I would talk about this one:

http://www.tmz.com/2015/04/13/drake-madonna-kiss-coachella-video/

This sparked a huge debate on the internet so I thought I would get my thoughts on it too. Madonna made a surprise appearance at Coachella during Drake’s set. As she was walking around on stage while singing, doing her usual thing… she made out with Drake onstage. Then there was a lot of speculation that Drake was disgusted ’cause a 56 year old woman kissed him since he had his hand over his mouth after she did it.

You see, I don’t think Drake was being disgusted. From what I saw, he fucking LOVED IT!!! He covered his mouth ’cause from the looks of things, he looked pretty shocked and thrilled. He was in one of those moments that he was pretty speechless that one of pop’s biggest icons made out on stage with him. He did love it. If you watch the video in the link above as Madonna made out with him, he was trying to brush his hand through her hair but she took his hand away. In my opinion, I think it was a bit of a thrill and excitement. He just couldn’t believe that a legend just kissed him, ya know?

I’d be the same way if a female pop star kissed me. This is one of those moments he’s never gonna forget. He was just pretty surprised and shocked, that was all. You heard him himself, “Oh shit, look what just fucking happened”. He was just a little too star struck is what it was. He probably never expected it and she just did it. The kiss was probably improvised and not planned ’cause you know how Madonna is. That woman is unpredictable when she performs. She’s always been sexual like that. Still the same old Madonna she’s always been.

I agree with Ac/Dc headlining “Coachella” but not Drake and Jack White…

Man, I’m tired of Jack White headlining all the big festivals lately. I’m NOT a fan of the White Stripes or his solo career. Jack White is overrated as hell as I’ve never bought his music. Yet, another rapper headlining a festival.

I agree with Ac/Dc, though. Ac/Dc haven’t headlined a big festival in many years so I’m glad they’re getting the opportunity.

I used to appreciate and respect these big festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bamboozle, etc but they are becoming a joke lately. I am beginning to hate them all.

Kev

Edit to add: I meant to say that I wasn’t a fan of the White Stripes or Jack White’s solo stuff.

Why big music festivals like Lollapalooza, Coachella, and Bonnaroo are garbage these days…

I really hate the lineups for all three of these festivals this year. Lollapalooza, Coachella, and Bonnaroo. The reason I don’t like the way the booking of these festivals is going is ’cause of rap/hip hop taken over the headlining act. We have rap acts being the headlining acts of all 3 of these festivals. Outkast is headlining both Lollapalooza and Coachella while we have Kanye headlining Bonnaroo. We now have Eminem confirmed as the headliner for Lollapalooza.

I enjoy some rap/hip hop but I’m not that big of a fan. I hate most of it. Rap/hip hop is obviously getting big and taking over the music industry. These big festivals don’t care what the people like anymore. They book the headliners whatever sells the most-tickets. Rap/hip hop sells a lot. That’s why this genre is taking over the big festivals these days ’cause rap draw the largest crowds.

These festivals used to be cool when rock and metal acts used to be the headliners but this is just more evidence that rock and metal is clearly dying. Rock and metal will never get big again and that’s the genre that I prefer to listen to mostly. There are plenty of great rock and metal acts that are deserving to headline these festivals. What about Soundgarden, Metallica, Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Ac/Dc, Neil Young, David Bowie, etc.??? So many possibilities.

I’m tired of all the rap obsession. Come on kids, there are better music out there. Why don’t kids today listen to real talent??? We need to educate people on music so they don’t listen to such garbage. We have pop and rap taking over the mainstream ’cause the media turns these kids onto that stuff.

We need kids listening to real stuff like Led Zep, The Beatles, Hendrix, SRV, the Grateful Dead, Chuck Berry or the Allman Brothers. Nope, everyone wants to listen to garbage like Kanye, Rihanna or Beyonce.

Rock and metal tries to get big in the mainstream but I don’t think it will ever get big again. Shame.

Top 10 Dead Musicians the industry should bring back to the stage…

So the new invention of the Hologram in the music industry is becoming a huge hit. Everyone is talking about what dead musicians they should bring back to the stage. I’m sure a lot of them will bring them back on either their birthdays or anniversary deaths.

Here’s a list of top ten dead musicians that I think that should be brought back from the grave:

  • Elvis Presley – I’m sure they’re already planning something for the King.
  • George Harrison & John Lennon – Get Paul McCartney and Ringo on the stage, get a George and John hologram, we can officially have a Beatles reunion, finally.
  • Jimi Hendrix – Wouldn’t it be cool if an upcoming Superbowl have Jimi  playing the National Anthem on guitar? Yeah it would.
  • Johnny Cash & June Carter – This would be badass!
  • Jerry Garcia – A Grateful Dead reunion with Jerry fronting again would be awesome!
  • Cliff Burton – I wouldn’t be surprised if Metallica is planning on it. Could they do it at their Orion festival?
  • Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, the Big Bopper – The next “Day the Music Died” anniversary???
  • Jim Morrison of the Doors – Bringing the Lizard King back would be great!
  • Kurt Cobain – I hope Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic would plan a Nirvana reunion of some kind, with a Kurt hologram fronting them would be awesome.
  • Bon Scott of Ac/Dc – Maybe in the next Ac/Dc tour, they could make a Bon Scott hologram. I fuckin’ love Ac/Dc! I love both the Bon Scott and Brian Johnson eras.

Feel free to add to the list if you want. Enjoy.

Cool Video: I must say that the Hologram thing at Coachella was very cool!

Now dead musicians will have the opportunity to perform on stage again!!! Well, sort of! While I wasn’t that crazy about this year’s Coachella lineup, I thought what Dr. Dre did here was very cool, and a wonderful thing to do to pay homage to an artist!

The music industry will probably do this a lot more often for live concerts for TV! Will they do this for Elvis? Hendrix? Janis Joplin? Jim Morrison? Maybe even Kurt Cobain?

I think Metallica should do a Hologram for Cliff Burton, that would be awesome!

I’m not into rap too much anymore but I thought this was very cool! The Hologram will indeed be the next big thing in the music industry.
