Exclusive: Paul Tollett on the Coachella naked-wizard-Tasering

April 23, 2009 |  6:52 pm

As you may have read recently, a naked man was Tasered at Coachella after refusing a police officer's request that he put on his wizard robes. There exists a terrifying video of the occasion that we cannot link to, for it contains images of this amateur Merlin's wand (thanks folks, I'm here all week, tip your bartenders please). Because Pop & Hiss has the naked wizard Taser beat on lockdown, we caught up with Goldenvoice grand poobah Paul Tollett for a comment on this occasion. His thoughts on this electrifying festival moment?

"Maybe he thought it was the Weenie Roast or Wango Tango," Tollett said.
