Two months ago, Flaming Lips leader Wayne Coyne shared some thoughts on the members of Arcade Fire ("They're pricks, so fuck 'em"), prompting an overheated response from AF's Win Butler. Now, Coyne's just sorry the whole thing ever happened and he's issued a heartfelt apology, sort of: "I didn’t necessarily mean it about the people in the Arcade Fire. I meant it about the guys that were running their stages at a couple of festivals ... I really feel bad about it. I like enough of their music. The idea that I’m somehow against them … I’m not!"
