What if...

Hypotheticals.

What do you think would have happened if the following artists were still alive/mentally sound today?

Jimi Hendrix
Janis Joplin
Jim Morrison
Syd Barrett (I know he's not dead but I mean what if he didn't turn into a bazooko from all the acid and mandrax and stayed in Pink Floyd)

Tell me what you think they would have done in the time since they died and what they'd be doing today. Feel free to add more names to the list, those just came straight off the top of my head.

If you wanna get real creative, make up some kind of timeline.

I wish I knew what Freddie Mercury and/or Kurt Cobain would be doing musically today.

Cobain's death served to build the myth, it's easy to predict that if he was still alive would be retired or if he continued doing music would be a predecible and boring musician, it was the fire of his youth what made him huge (and what killed him), not the fact that he was a good guitar player or a good song writer, because he wasn't

I love Nirvana too but this is an interesting thought.
