I'm just back from the theater - I saw Micheal Jackson's 'This is it'. MJ was one of the many artists I grew up listening to, and I truly believe that the world will not be the same without him.

Wish we could bring all the greats like him back - but if you had only one choice among the mentioned great musicians, which would you have resurrected?

Jason Becker isn't dead, but he is paralyzed. I'd want him to be able to move and play music again.
#4
Layne Staley. Although I do like DuVall.

Hitler. I think he'd really dig the hippies.

Musicians - probably Mozart. Mozart + a computer with Finale = omg.

Kurt Cobain is probably the best choice, since Nirvana arguably peaked with In Utero and their acoustic stuff.
Randy Rhoads definitely went too early, but solo Ozzy is pretty lame...so he wouldn't be my personal choice. He was amazing, though.
Dimebag Darell went out before people started to realize how lame he was becoming, so his death really helped his cause (being immortality). I mean, Pantera after '96 is pretty laughable.
Michael Jackson, yeah it's MJ. I mean, he'd been making shit albums for over a decade and I know most people had gotten annoyed with him, so yeah...it's not 1982 anymore.
Elvis Presley....that sucka was racist. **** him
Syd Barrett would have still gone crazy, so no good. Unless you can return his brain to "normal" or whatever that means in the context of Syd Barrett, then a couple of Pink Floyd albums would be neat. I doubt they'd be much better than Piper, though, because the band really wasn't happy with him.
Cliff Burton was a huge part of Metallica's status in metal, but I feel like James was going to end up taking the band in a progressively more frustratingly commercial path eventually, so he wouldn't be that important to the band's music.
Jimi Hendrix, another guy who doesn't need to be discussed. I feel like his music was getting less great as he progressed, not that I don't love Band of Gypsies or anything, just more drugged out jamming and less songwriting. A personal opinion.
Jim Morrison is probably my number two, because his solo stuff destroys his work with the Doors. Still, he probably didn't have very many good albums left in him.

Another option is Nick Drake. He put out three stellar albums, and died after his magnum opus. No doubt he was taken too soon. Also, Jeff Buckley.

Few too many to name, but a few that spring to mind are Layne Staley, Hendrix, Jeff Buckley, SRV.

And personally for me, my Grandfather, he died at 94 so he had a pretty full life, but there are things i would have liked to have talked to him about because i feel i could now more than when he was alive.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

None of them, because as soon as they were here again you would quickly realise they are not as special as the pedestal we built beneath their corpses.

Kurt killed himself, so wouldn't he again? Also, proof of Elvis's ''racism'' please...

Mine would be Chuck Schulner of Death, as he died after a slew of amazing albums. Then maybe Oystein Aasarth from Mayhem, it would also be interesting to see what he would of put out. Then John Bonham,Rhandy Rhoads and Fredie Mercury for similar reasons.

exactly this..


a shame that a lot of great musicians are already dead, like aforementioned persons like freddy mercury and such for example, but I wouldn't want them to be alive again, since I have no idea of how important music really was for them, and how their lives were because of the fame/fortune and the talent they had..

I can imagine for a lot of those musician's lives were pretty stressful

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

I know he's not a musician, but I'd rather like to see Kurt Vonnegut come back.
But he won't, so it goes.

Randy was talking to Ozzy about leaving the band before his death and probably would have after another album or two. The first time Randy brought it up to Ozzy, Ozzy punched Randy in the face.

Also, IMO, recent Ozzy is bad. Besides Ultimate Sin (With the great track: Shot in the Dark), Ozzy had a pretty good line up of CD's with Blizzard - No More Tears.

Who knows how Randy would have changed it... Can you imagine a Mr. Crowley 2.0?


But really, I would have to say Mozart... How he would have changed the world of music and composition if he lived even 5 more years can't be said...

I'm shocked, and quite troubled that throughout this thread, nobody, and i mean NOBODY has mentioned Johnny Cash. I mean, guys...What the fuck?
#35
^ Maybe it's because Johnny Cash had a full career? People have to die sometime. But it's not really like his life was cut tragically short.

Jeff Buckley.

He was special.

A profound, prolific songwriter who could actually sing and had wicked guitar chops to boot. He could've easily been the next great, iconoclastic artist.

I voted jimi hendrix but now that I think about it it would be cool if Chopin or Rimsky-Korsakov was alive.

I'm sorry, i didn't realise that the name of this thread had changed to 'Which musician would you ressurect due to them having their lives cut short and not having a full and successful career'. And so i bow down to you, oh seer of invisible words. Your powers truly are magnificent.

Lulz.

Bitter much? If you don't want things replied to, perhaps you shouldn't wonder out loud (figuratively speaking).

Of that list, I think the only ones that truly deserve to be alive are Randy Rhoads, Cliff Burton and Dimebag, as their deaths were completely out of their own hands. All the others with the possible exception of Barrett, I don't know much about him, contributed in some way to their own demise.

My own choice would be Frank Zappa. I know he had a lot left in him.
