In an attempt to possibly take some of the spotlight off Coachella this week, Lollapalooza released a "same, same but different" lineup for the eighth installment of the Chicago festival in Grant Park. As at Coachella, the Black Keys and At the Drive-In are performing. But unlike Coachella, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jack White will make an appearance. And in a giant coup, the Black Sabbath reunion will not happen in Indio, but in the Midwest. The Afghan Whigs will also tour together for the first time in a decade.

Who else is playing Lolla that we wish was doing Coachella? Alabama Shakes, for one. Burger Records' FIDLAR, for another. And lastly, there's a ton of EDM acts at Lollapalooza this year: Avicii and Justice will be at the main stages, and Bassnectar, Kaskade, Calvin Harris, NERO, Santigold, Knife Party, Zeds Dead, and Big Gigantic will perform as well. Lollapalooza will be held on Aug. 3 to 5.

The Rolling Stones are never irrelevant. THEY ROCK!And besides I bet you can't do what they do. Charlie Watts is Awesome and so is (Keith Richards and the Expensive Winos) - Ronnie Wood was Awesome with the Small Faces and The Faces which included Rod Stewart.

Why have you heard of anything such as Depends doing a sponsorship for major bands, I think Mick Jagger is what 70 years old and still rocking, that last film "Shine A Light" was pretty damn good in places as I saw it and it's still incredible, unbelieveable that they're all up there rocking like that still today, I disliked the negative comments about it but Director Martin Scorsese complained too much in my opinion but I understand his motivation, the Stones have been doing it for years and years and they're in the process of making another CD and it's almost done and I hope that it will be released soon. A Bigger bang was pretty good too, it takes a lot of effort to make an album and CD let alone a DVD and get everyone co-ordinated.

 Sorry to hear that Ronnie Montrose of Montrose fame died (I bet Sammy Hagar was hurt when he heard that news) and never got to finish the DVD that he was working on. I wanted to see that come to fruition, but now I can't enless someone else takes up his mantle and pieces it together from old and new material but don't know if he gave that authorization. It would be grand and fantastic to see that as well as hear another CD by him, I heard that song called 'Town Without Pity' on Coast to Coast AM and was blown away by it that was on his last CD.

Most of the bands on in that lineup I've never heard of, but Perry Ferrell is fastastic in his musical endeavors as well as his DVD efforts, I saw him and Jane's Addiction on a British rock show on cable one night and the guitarist was cool standing next to him. Rocking out.

At what point does live geezer rock shuffle creakily across the line between irrelevant (Rolling Stones) and outright embarrassing? Your 40th anniversary tour? Your 70th birthday? Tour sponsorship by Depends, Polident and AARP?

WHO'S THE LINEUP GONNA BE PERSONWISE FOR BLACK SABBATH? THAT WILL BE AWESOME TO SAY THE LEAST. IS OZZY GETTING INVOLVED? BECAUSE TONY IOMI IS FANTASTIC, BUT I STILL MISS RONNIE JAMES DIO, LOVED HIM WHEN HE WAS WITH RAINBOW AND HIS OWN BAND, WE LOST A TREASURE THERE. I GOT TO SEE HIM ONCE AT THE COTTON BOWL AT THE VERY LAST TEXXAS JAM WHEN 80,000 PEOPLE WERE IN THE STANDS.
