His suicide was tragic, but I think what was lost with Curtis were essentially his lyrics. I kind of feel that New Order was a natural progression from Joy Division musically, though the music might have sounded much bleaker.....hard to say....wish he lived longer though.

Marc Bolan, damnit! It would be hilarious! There would have to be a surprise guest performance by Bowie, which would be funny as hell!
Morrissey would be standing somewhere in the wings being extremely confused... and eating a piece of toast. This is my dream.

Bolan was cremated so he'd have to be an ASH ZOMBIE! So. Awesome.

Frank Zappa
- best guitar player ever bar none
- he would have had a field day with how politics and popular culture has 'developed'
- many argue that his last album (Civilization Phase III) was his best
- I would have gotten to see him play live
- he rules

The lead singer from The Cranberries. I'm not positive she's dead but I haven't heard anything about them in ages so I'm just going to assume. If only so that while they are eating our brains we'll hear "ZOMBIE, ZOMBIE, ZOMBI-EH-EH-EH!"

A tie:

John Lennon and Jimi


Honorable mention: Micheal Hutchence, John Bonham, Keith Moon, Buddy Holly and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Aww Hell, Jim Morrisson would be cool too.

Dang, I'm sorry I didn't think of Stevie Ray Vaughan like MrPryck2U. I'd love to see him back among us.

You had to be there

What I'd enjoy would be to hear Zeppelin play again, with John Bonham, who died while I was a kid.

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.
This is an incredibility huge loss to music, in my opinion.

As for me... Lennon? Mercury? Bonham? All of them would be cool!
I was privileged to hear Jon Bonham/ Led Zepplin live in '73.
It's embedded in my soul.

The Cranberries decided that they wanted to persue solo careers a few years ago. Dolores O'Riordan is alive. She released an album last year called "Are you listening?"
