Wow!!!! What a killer lineup!! Better than last years!!! Sir Paul will probably perform a bunch of Beatles songs and his solo stuff. Hope Amy Winehouse is clean enough to perform so she won’t suck, I have a feeling she will, that woman needs to stop performing. I wonder why the Coachella booking agents would want to book a drug addict to the Festival anyways when fans will probably boo her off the stage.

Seeing Leonard Cohen’s gotta be amazing. Cool show, wish I could be there.

I’ll especially give the new Guns N’ Roses a listen tomorrow on myspace. I’ll listen to the Sir Paul one too of course, but I’m more interested in hearing the new Gn’r album. I had planned on buying the “Chinese Democracy” album and I want to listen to the whole thing first in case I want to change my mind.
