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


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.

You cannot link to? Or you're too lazy to pursue? This is the kind of nonsense that passes for journalism at the Los Angeles Times these days? Despicable.

Unlike you, August, I actually tracked down the specifics of the incident and talked at length with the Indio Police Department.


For goodness sake, do your job. I'm not sure if you've paid attention to the economic headlines, but this is not exactly the best time for journalists to kick up their feet.

Actually I think this is a great time for Journalists to kick their feet up becaue I'm sick of hearing about america falling into the toilets economically I need a break, and some light hearted news.
