Surely it's GenXers ragging on the prequel trilogy, having been kids with the originals. it can't be long until "OK Xer..." hits the mainstream.

Prequel trilogy is objectively fucking dogshit by the way...

I watched the originals in the 90s on the re-release, can confirm that waiting 20 years to see Luke Sky walker throw his light saber away as a cheap joke in the last jedi set the tone for the next 2 hours...

Paul McCartney's birthday today. He will be 80 by the time of the next festival. I want to see a Beatle play live, but at what point will he be too old to deliver without it being embarrassing.

 

I saw Macca a couple of years ago at the O2 and certainly delivered still.

I also feel for the likes of Macca, Reg and the Stones it's important not to expect crystal reproductions of their perfect voices, it's about the vibe and enjoying just having them on stage.

When 80,000 people are going mad to Live and Let Die it won't matter if he's a little croaky.

Think I might have been at the same one. Played pretty close to 3hrs and nearly missed my tube home. 
I’d have no concern about him playing at 80, if he was still up for it.

Why would McCartney playing at 78 go unquestioned but 80 would suddenly be too old?

I'm assuming something star wars related but I'm only half reading the thread

I'm not even a superfan but Macca's still exceptionally sprightly (being rich as fuck really helps), still knocking out great albums, and has easily one of the best live backing bands on earth right now. Absolutely no way it won't be brilliant. He's not being wheeled in from a care home or anything.

Where did that lightsabre come from anyway? Last I saw it, it was travelling to the bottom of a very deep shaft with a severed hand still hanging on to it.

Wouldn’t surprise me at all to see Metallica as a TBC but can’t see them headlining. Has anyone fallen so immediately in love with the festival as Lars? 

They are playing the Sunday of Glastonbury though which would probably mean they play the Friday. I don't see then going from Prague on the 22nd, to South West England for a nothing paid gig virtually and then back to Belgium.

That is so close to Download that I'm shocked they've not persuaded then to play. So next year is RAR/RIP, Nova Rock and Graspop. If them 3 get them and Download don't then I think that's it for chances over.

Metallica have form for doing surprise shows. Relatives of mine went to Nashville for a country music festival/convention thing, and Metallica rocked up in a tiny bar and just did a set of Lynyrd Skynyrd type stuff for an hour. Apparently it wasn’t seen as a big deal at all, and most of the people there didn’t really know who they were! I could totally see them doing something random on the Farm next year.

That is undoubtedly a winning story, but the mental picture of Lars trying to keep a consistent tempo for the entirety of Free Bird is really getting me good.

What’s this Sunday gig? Werchter is a week later. 
 

During the build up for the ‘20 festival I was suggesting them for a secret set. An hour in JP in the middle of the day, or opening the other or pyramid is the dream.
