Vegas Rocks festival : Guns N Roses, Stone Temple Pilots, Motorhead, Chili Peppers & More

Mark the first weekend in July 2009 on your calendar... Guns N Roses might be coming to town.

Wales Online is reporting that Dave Peters - front man from 80's Second British Invasion band The Alarm, who not only sounded a lot like U2, but sported Bonoian mullets too - is putting together a massive outdoor charity festival a la Live Aid called Vegas Rocks.

Despite having a pretty lame name, the early line up has promise: Guns N Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stone Temple Pilots, Motorhead, The Damned and, of course, The Alarm. I can't help but think how a reformation of The Clash would slam dunk this bill... that is if Joe Strummer was still with us.

Motorhead is such an awesome band to see live. I've seen them once. I'd like to see GnR but the original line up, not this thing they've got going on now. Axl with corn rows and football jerseys...he still has those right?

Wowza, now thats a lineup. Stone Temple Pilots is AMAZING live. Saw them 5 times this year (Yes, we're some of those dorks in the old VW riding the bumper of their tour bus). Itd be really interesting to see what kind of lineup GNR pulls together. Hell, at this point Velvet Revolver is more GNR then GNR is.

Hell, I'd go to it just to see The Alarm and The Damned; everyone else would be icing on the cake.

I think they ought to try to get The Pogues for this. I can imagine Shane McGowan drunk and disorderly along The Strip.....
