Wow, might be easier to list who WON'T be there!

No Glamification of Metal, Rock or Pop here.

Just a rag tag hodge podge of B-list performers aimed at the alternative crowd.

But there are a couple of acts worth checking out...

Jeff Beck. The best on the bill.

Flamin' Lips. People will be trippin' for their performance of 'Dark Side Of The Moon'.

Thievery Corporation. Phenomenal Electronica!

But that's too few bands that are good to bother hauling it all the way out there for Bonaroo.

As my 94-year-old dad would say, "It sure is a long way to go for a drink."

Whoah.... Gwar and Stevie Wonder on the same bill. PRICELESS!

Yeah, Kenny, I was thinkin' the same thing when I looked at the bill again. Maybe GWAR could join Stevie on stage for an encore with Jeff Beck on lead. They could do "Superstition", since Beck covered that with Beck Bogert Appice, back in the day.

Seriously, tho, there were some other cool ones I missed...

LCD Soundsystem, Calexico and John Fogerty.

If only Jay-Z would use Auto-Tune. His band is hot, replete with the occasional Metal guitar treatment, but his voice blowz. But if it was smoothed out and melodicized by Auto-Tune, he would sound so stylin'.

In fact, he could do his song, "Death To Auto-Tune", singin' with his "voice" being Auto-Tuned up to Ted Poley levelz... For that I would be willing to pay exorbitant amounts of cash and be willing to suffer through the Tennessee heat and Bonnaroo weirdoes for, too, and gladly.

Another cool thing to do to kind of break up the sheer boredom most of theze acts will deliver to the stages of Bonnarscrew would be to strap Les Claypool to his bass with a bunch of plastique, stuff him into one of AC/DC's canons maybe we could get them to lend us to put onto the main stage and launch him into the stratosphere.

That would look so cool and sound a h*lluva lot better than his endless riffing off of the theme to The Barney Miller Show that he monotonously beats to death while also singing like a drowning chipmunk.
