If you could bring a dead rock star back to life

If you could bring a dead rock star back to life for one gig, who would it be?

John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis, Kurt Cobain, Buddy Holly, Freddie Mercury? Or someone else?

This Day in Music are carrying out a world-wide survey to see which dead rock stars people would want to see again - for one night only!

Who would you pick? You can see a full list and vote on

I know! Now never mind me, pick a dead rock star! I'm having Jimi Hendrix. He was dead before I got into him, but seeing him on DVD he was the man.

Since John Lennon is likely to be picked by just about everyone, I'm going to go for a non-rock star and say Nick Drake.

I voted Hutchence. There's many on that list that I would have voted for, but personally, in September 1997 I passed on seeing INXS in concert in a club and a couple of months later he was dead. I've been kicking myself ever since.

Probably Lennon or Bonham.
Never got to see INXS either.
I did get to see Queen with Freddie, R.I.P.

It's obviously John Lennon for me, but if I didn't pick him, the first star that came to mind was Kurt Cobain, although Freddie Mercury is a top pick too

I wouldn't pick Lennon, because I believe had he lived, he'd have soon become a watered down version of himself, pumping out middle-of-the-road pop records.

Although if it meant seeing a Lennon/McCartney reunion or collaboration?

Okay, I'll pick Lennon then.

I agree so I go with Buckley or Cobain.

Buckley was really just hitting his stride and Cobain I think would have gone off a completely different path musically if he found a way to deal... rumor has it he and Michael Stipe were writing some tunes together right before his death.
