Will Ol' Dirty Bastard Be Resurrected At Coachella?

(Radio.com) With the music world still reeling over the long-awaited announcement of the 2013 Coachella line-up, hip-hop fans fired up for the headlining performance from '90s hip-hop legends Wu-Tang Clan are asking the same question: will late Wu-Tang rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard appear onstage with the rest of the band as a hologram?

It's a fair question, as despite high-profile sets from the likes of Radiohead and Swedish House Mafia, Coachella 2012 will forever be remembered for Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg highlighting their star-studded closing set (Eminem, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa and more all made onstage cameos) with a widely-publicized hologram of the much-revered Tupac Shakur, killed back in 1996 amidst a hail of bullets while riding in a car in Las Vegas.

Ol' Dirty Bastard was one of the most visible members of the Wu-Tang Clan with his outrageous behavior (he notoriously allowed MTV to ride along with him in a limousine to pick up a welfare check) and inimitable flow on the microphone. An ongoing barrage of legal difficulties from assault charges to drug convictions found the rapper spending more time behind bars than on concert stages.

Sadly, Ol' Dirty Bastard died of a drug overdose in late 2004, just two days before his 36th birthday. more on this story
