Hey, now. I don't think the lyrical content of a band's songs has any relevance to a fan finding meaning in them. You may not like them but its not like there aren't some gems. I wouldn't pass up seeing any legend who's music resonates with me somewhere. And trust me, I have passed up "legends" because pretending to enjoy what I was hearing just because they were so and so would be lame and sorta fraudulent. I just anticipate that The Stones will put on a good show and a lot of kids who heard to songs growing up will be able to have a musical connection with their parents (or whoever) based in live performance. It will be the jam for most people to phone their pops and flip over Brown Sugar (or whatever).

Yes, but what about the people who really don't care enough about those bands to even go to Coachella? I do not pretend that the Stones aren't a big deal and everyone would flip their shit. And everyone has been holding out for Derft Purnk. But neither of those bands are ones that would make me choose Coachella over Sasquatch, or any other festival.
If Daft Punk and the Rolling Stones confirm for Coachella...
...every other festival might as well take 2013 off.
Coachella isn't doable for me because of the logistics and timing. Sasquatch however lands on a 3 day weekend, and is fairly close, so I only have to get a day or two off work/school instead of 3 or 4.
