Flaming Lips Ready To Rock With Who, Film


Avant oddballs the Flaming Lips are gearing up for their performance at next week’s Rock Honors, where they’ll be taking on the Who (a dream come true, for frontman Wayne Coyne). Known for their on-stage spectaculars, the band — who’ll be joining the Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam and Incubus in kneeling at the altar of the Who — will also be celebrating something else: after seven years, the band have finished working on Christmas on Mars, a concept film about the first Christmas on the Red Planet, starring the band. They plan on screening the film this summer at a series of shows.

So what to expect from the Lips’ Who tribute and their latest foray into film? Just like the band they’re honoring, weirdness and spectacle, and lots of it. If you can’t wait until next week, check out the craziest on-stage antics of rock and rollers here.

    The Flaming Lips are the best live show..PERIOD. Something I thought “interesting”…..it was mentioned last night at the VH1 Who thing that The Who never sold out. HAHAHAHA, Townshend sold his songs to anyone pitching a product; their song snippets were heard on commercials ranging from Hondas to detergent.
