Wayne Coyne is a fucking rockstar. With his knotted grey hair, ripped suit,space bubble, and confetti Wayne is does the title justice. We first met Wayne at Lollapalooza in 2006, hung out again in 2008, and crossed paths again this past summer at an intimate and fiery show at Montauk’s The Surf Lodge in Montauk. He’s always shocked us on stage, entertained us and rocked us. But most of all, he’s charmed us with self-effacing conversations behind the scenes.
The leading man for the psych-rock band The Flaming Lips continues reminds us that what matters in life is to put your heart into it, have a go, and not worry about what others think. That not taking yourself too seriously is the only thing you should take seriously.
