Hendrix, though I would like to know where Cobain and Buckley were headed musically.

False.

Hendrix is not at all legit for me, because I'm simply not a fan. I don't want to hear him play again, not on my Ipod, and not in person. And if that makes me a musical philistine, so be it. He just does not do it for me, no matter how talented he might have been.

What I'd enjoy would be to hear Zeppelin play again, with John Bonham, who died while I was a kid. I love Zeppelin, I do not love Hendrix, so, of course Hendrix would be a ludicrous reply for me.

Also, by your criteria, Jeff Buckley is a legit answer. A lot of people loved his debut album, and who the hell knows what his future held.

I wouldn't mind picking Buckley, because even though I'm very vocal about how I feel he became overrated in death, he was insanely talented and I would have loved to see him grow as an artist.

I'm not a huge Hendrix fan either. But the guy had more natural talent than most people who have ever picked up a guitar, and as I said, was really just getting started.

I love John Bonham, but the thought of Zeppelin continuing through the 80's (like the Stones) and sucking royally (All My Love, e.g.) makes me think his passing was a blessing in disguise.

Not sure how you could be a Jew AND a Philistine, but if there is a way, yeah, you found it.

George Harrison

My favourite Beatles song is Love You To

"Love me while you can
Before I'm a dead old man"

I missed my chance

Okay, I'll pick Lennon then.
Same here.

If that "one gig" doesn't mean a reunion or a collaboration, I'd vote for Elvis.

He's not on the list, but since there is an "other" choice...

Grant McLennan, so a certain someone would be able to say a proper goodbye and wouldn't have to always remember that the last time they talked he brushed Grant off because he had other things to do that day.

Regret is a bitch to live with.

Ok I know im going to get so much bad stuff for this but I'd have two people to choose from it would be John Bohnam or Freddie Mercury.

I will have to go for Freddie is because he WAS Queen. He was the frontman that made them Queen.

Yes, John Bohman is an amazing drummer, but he was not Led Zeppelin. They all 4 made Zeppelin, well Zeppelin. But when I think of LZ, the first person I think of is Page, then Plant.

Natural talent does not necessarily equal an ability to write songs that that sounded good mate.

I would have said Hendrix, but truth is, he belongs to the 60s because he was the big thing that time.

So with others in mind, with today's music-scene Im gonna go with Michael Hutchence, he oozed the S appeal, and he and Paula seemed to ultimate wild couple at yon time.
His songs were very raw and in those videos you just had to be drawn in by the way he looked at ‘you’.

He would still appeal today.

Very rough sxy.

There is NO "legit answer". It's all opinion!

As for me... Lennon? Mercury? Bonham? All of them would be cool!
