This is only speculation (so in other words a pointless post), but...
I think the Stones would see playing Coachella as a two fold windfall in terms of cash money. They will still receive a pretty penny, but maybe not an amount that would cripple the fest's chance at still getting 2 more big headliners. The reason this works for them is exposure to one of the most easily manipulated audiences who are still giving money to the music industry. Being associated with the "Cool Coachella", especially if they are being presented as the grandfathers of the Strokes and what not will no doubt boost their relevancy (briefly) among young people. By relevancy I mean, people buying their shit.

That's funny, mothmonsterman, I don't know WHAT to expect from you because I don't know who the hell you are. That was my little way of saying I'm jealous. Hating on your dear old Horned Gramma is so five minutes ago, by the way. Tres gauche.
