He's fantastic. One of the best hip-hop artists to emerge in a long time.

Will he be performing again with Imagine Dragons like they did at the Grammys?

I love how balanced the lineup is to suit different musical tastes.

Personally, I'd tune in for Soundgarden and Soundgarden only... I'm not familiar with most of the other lineup's music.

But kudos for catering to a wide audience, since not everyone can be open-minded about music genres other than their own, as some of the comments here clearly show.

Only 1 good band? Band of Skulls is the only band worth seeing of all these bands. And they are not metal. Check them out.


Cool. I'll stream them at my desk today.

Thanks,
