Coachella 2012 Line-up Released! Doesn’t Impress The Doc


The official Coachella line up was released today with Radiohead, The Black Keys, Dr. Dre & Snoop Dog and Pulp being announces as acts for the festival. To me, it is not very impressive.

To be honest, it is hard to sell me on festivals because....I'm a diva. I don't want to be up against some sweaty people, even if it would allow me to see Jarvis Cocker and Pulp rock it out. At The Drive In returns after an 11 year absence and that still is not enough.

This year, the festival extends to 2 weekends.  2 weekends of overpriced water and food items.  Woo hoo!  Ahem.  Not really.

Radiohead has never done it for me. I have tremendous respect for The Black Keys...just not enough to justify putting up with a Coachella crowd. Snoop Dog and Dr. Dre together again. Still....not enough.

Perhaps if I was hooked up by Goldenvoice and had use of its private facilities, I would enjoy it. For those that know the Doc well...i can be somewhat cockshy...or pee shy when it comes to having to use a port a potty. Again, I know I am a diva. I didn't even attend Coachella when Prince rocked it.

Are you guys impressed with the Coachella line up of 2012?-DocFB

Diagnosis: Yes....I said Cockshy....


Video: Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa Perform With The Roots

Snoop Dog and Wiz Khalifa performed "Young, Wild, & Free" with The Roots on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

They cleaned up the song a little bit but it still has its cool funk and when you throw in The Roots as your backing band, you know it is going to be hot!

Check out the video above.  It is hard not to funk side to side while listening to it.-DocFB

Diagnosis:  When you live like this you are supposed to party.....


Classic MTV Awards Performance; Eminem & Dr. Dre

It is hard to believe that it has been over a decade since Eminem was brought on to rap scene by Dr. Dre.  His very first MTV Video Music Awards performance showed that Eminem was here to stay.  The next night, he rocked the Gibson Ampithetre in L.A. with Dre and was my first time seeing Eminem electrify a crowd.

Not only did he perform "My Name Is" and "Guilty Conscience" and "Nothing But A "G" Thang" with Dre and Snoop Dog, he walked away with the best new artist that night.  Unlike the Grammy's, MTV got it right that night.

Check out this classic performance by Eminem featuring Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dog.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  It's Like That N Like This And.....


Video Premiere: “So What” Far East Movement

"So What" is the latest video from Far East Movement. It has been a successfull year for FEM with "Like A G6", "Rocketeer" and "If I Was U" with Snoop Dog.

"So What" has the vibe and video to find itself another major hit for Far East Movement.

I think this gets the FUNK pass and won't be a DUNK.

Check it out and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis: All I Want Is Bass

Me loves. What do you think?-Dr.FB
