Billie Joe & The Replacements @ Coachella
After what was regarded as a lackluster first weekend set, the Replacements returned to Coachella's Outdoor Stage with a vengeance, recruiting Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong (above right - standing) to fill in for ailing frontman Paul Westerberg (above - being held), who was laid up on the couch -- literally.
Westerberg came onto the stage at the opening of the band’s set walking with a cane, and some tweets from audience members suggest he’d hurt his back, hence the need to hit the couch on stage. But it’s not entirely clear whether something actually was wrong, or whether it was just a joke. MORE (including tons of video) HERE
