It would certainly be a surprise addition to the line-up.

The son of Roy Orbison has just got us thinking wistfully of a hologram appearance from the singer at Glastonbury 2019 following his forthcoming holographic tour of the UK this year. It certainly would make a very special addition to the festival whether or not he could make it as a headliner.

The 'Pretty Woman' hitmaker would hardly be a suitable candidate for a main stage headliner, even aside from the fact that he passed away in 1988. However, now that technology can bring the dead back to life in some senses, it would be pretty cool to see such a legend at that UK's biggest music event.

Roadie Review

By Christopher Null

OK

This strange collaboration of Zalman King, Alan Rudolph, and Meat Loaf stands as one of cinema's big, cult oddities -- giving us the Loaf as a Texas beer trucker (hauling Shiner, by the way) who becomes a roadie in order to impress a groupie he encounters. Never mind that she's 16 years old. Te film approximates a road trip en route to an Alice Cooper show, but the plot is safely skippable. If only there were more musical bits (check the cast list!) -- and the lead actors didn't jabber constantly over them.
