Hendrix, first and foremost without a doubt ... followed by Elvis, Lennon and Hutchence as ties for second.

I think that, had this kind of gig actually happened, it would have been incredibly weird and creepy,

But in terms of talent cut down too soon, I'd go with Jeff Buckley. I think that Grace is waaay overpraised, but for me there's no question that the guy was incredibly gifted.

If it was for one gig only, I wouldn't hesitate to bring back Mister John Bonham .... to reunite with Led Zeppelin and play Madison Square Garden

If it was to continue on with their career .... Jeff Buckley. His brilliance was only just starting to emerge, he was so young and at the beginning of his career. He was so unique, so talented and so utterly mesmerising. This guy was amazing in every musical aspect and he had the voice of an angel.
Who knows where he was heading, or if he was always destined to self destruct ..... as so many of the other incredibly talented musicians of our time were.


and for sheer greed ..... Bon Scott ...... just because he was Bon friggin Scott. No more reason needed.

hahaha.. SHE'S NOT DEAD BUDDY... is actually doing a solo thing now. She was at the 930 Club a few months ago. They just stopped and concentrated on raising their families apparently. I stayed at a B & B in Ireland, somewhere outside of Dublin. It was the family home of the woman who married their bass player, so they filled me in a little on them while we were there. That was 4 yrs ago.

Let me add, Boston's Brad Delp ... such an inspirational songwriter/vocalist.

as much as i would have loved to see what jimi hendrix could have done if he lived on, i would hate to have seen jimi hendrix become a watered down shell of his former self like eric clapton has become.

so i'm gonna go with a name nobody's mentioned and say bradley nowell.

I don't think Hendrix would have gone that way. He wasn't a tool. He had a brilliant way of thinking. I think he would have progressed and maybe become something different - like Prince but less angry. Clapton was just talented - and never as talented as people believed he was, I don't think.

Bono? I keed, I keed.

I'd pick Keith Moon, Jimi Hendrix, or for the lesser known choice, Mick Ronson. He wasn't that popular of a dude in comparison, but I would've loved to hear him jam with Bowie one last time.

I never really thought about Ronson because it didn't stop him while he was still going on strong like some others.

You're like a dog chasing cars. You wouldn't know what to do if you picked Ronson earlier.

I just want to show people that their faith in Ronson ... is meaningless.

And I can prove it objectively, with facts.

Write a thesis and see if you can earn in a PhD in ROCK! I'll grade it.
