    Bonamassa should headline this terrible lineup.
    Joe Bonamassa is out of nowhere I would KILL to see Joe Bonamassa live.
    One of the greatest live acts around. I was blown away at how tight he and his band were. (not to mention his playing ability is phenomenal)
    I get it, "The Blend" trying to add the old with the new. I would be there for KSE, Alter B, and Bonamassa and Zombie only. The should play "Daryl's House"

    Quite a lot of young metalcore bands on the bill this year. Miss May I, Blessthefall, Emmure, Upon A Burning Body, While She Sleeps, Suicide Silence, Black Dahlia Murder, The Amity Affliction, Letlive, Memphis Mayfire, Crossfaith. Glad these bands are getting to play Download.
    Crazytown?? As in "Butterfly" Crazytown?? That's hilarious.
    That would be funny. Would be cool if Frusciante showed up to play Pretty Little Ditty riff with them. I would definately not hold my breath though!
