Guns N Roses played “It’s So Easy” at Coachella this weekend. Johnny Manziel played in the sea of balls.
The Heisman Trophy-winner attended the three-day event in Indio, California, which featured performances by LCD Soundsystem, Lord Huron, Ice Cube, Pete Yorn, and Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, who sang: “Son of a bitch/Give me a drink/One more night/This can’t be me/Son of a bitch/If I can’t get clean/I’m gonna drink my life away.”

Manziel at Coachella Music and Arts Festival follows a busy offseason that has included a helicopter deployed in Texas to search for him and a rented mansion in California allegedly trashed by the quarterback and friends.
The appearance at the non-stop party in the desert provides an answer of sorts to agent Drew Rosenhaus, who gave Manziel an ultimatum to end his partying or their association would end. On Wednesday, Rosenhaus imposed a five-day deadline for the former Browns quarterback to clean up his act and seek treatment. He wrote, “I hope he gets the help he needs, and if he does, then I will continue to represent him.”
Manziel searched for the cure to what ails him at the music festival, dancing in a sea of balls, walking about with a drink of some sort in hand, partying with Drake’s dad, and socializing with the opposite sex. The slimmed down Johnny Football looked like he needed to hit the weight room as much as he needed to stop hitting the barroom.
The QB remains a free agent, with an emphasis on free.
