Jimi was lucky he died when he did. It would've been all down hill for him from where he was.
#6
Probably Hendrix, he had so much left in him. Only 27 when he died. Plus, Band of Gypsys shows the fantastic direction he was going in as a musician.

John Bon Jones?


Mine would be John Bohnam.

Well, I guess I'd choose either Hendrix or Duane Allman. Both of them died so young; the world only got to hear a whisper of them.

I would choose Bonzo, but Zep was, to be honest, out of their prime by In Through the Outdoor, which I think was a good enough album for them to end on (it'd be great to see them live, though).

I also would've chose Jerry Garcia, but the Dead were, sort of like Zeppelin, way out of their prime. The concerts weren't about the music entirely anymore - people would go set up booths to make cash off of the true fans.

But there's still many more that died too young...

Stevie
Janis Joplin
Jim Morrison
Berry Oakley

Etc., etc.

Seriously, this sounds like a pussy squable from Saved By The Bell or some **** like that.

I wouldn't bring anyone back. I'd rather have my role models die as legends than die as washed up has been musicians that took their career too far. I will tell you, however, who I think still had a lot of potential. Bon Scott and AC/DC were just making it big time when he passed on, if he was still alive him and AC/DC most likely would have gone in a different direction than they did in the 80's.

all these people saying Lennon?

why?

His music at that point in his career was complete crap, save a few songs here and there.

Ya, he could have helped World Peace, but not much more than he already did. Granted, he was a symbol, but still, i think someone like Duane Allman, who was a flawless musician, and who didn't waste five years of his life fooling around with some japanese freak, should get a second chance.

Keith Moon and John Entwhilste, John Lennon and George Harrison. Just so the original Who lineup would be complete, and a Beatles reunion would be possible.
#18
most definately either

Keith Moon (OMG JOHN ENTWISTLE'S DEAD?!? [seriously])
SRV
Randy Rhoads
Jimi Hendrix
John Lennon
George Harrison

^No one has said him because not everyone has the unhealthy obsession with him and Queen that you do


Anyway, I kinda agree with karateguy29. I would rather have them remain as legends rather than see them fade away as the years progress. But I would still love very much to see Randy Rhoads alive and well today. But tis only to remain a dream..

Dang, I thought this was about the Grateful Dead...

As much as I think it'd be cool to have Garcia alive and well, he was tired. I think he was at the end of his run. It was time.

But, I do think Frank Zappa coming back would be pretty cool. He was going to run for Prez, that would have been so cool

Cozy Powell


The man that could've/would've replaced Bonzo.

You guys know what would be interesting? If time travel was ever found to be possible, and it was mastered, if we could somehow prevent the deaths of these guys just to see what direction things would go in.

I mean, a lot of great music was created after/because of these guys deaths, and would not have been if they hadn't died, but it'd have been great to see what guys like Hendrix, Allman, Vaughan, etc. would've come out with had they not died so young.

Actually, I watched a video in my physics class some time ago and a few very well educated researchers discovered that it would be possible for time travel. The only problem is that, according to what they have researched, it would be impossible to go back any further than when the time-travel device was made. Don't ask me for any in-depth explanation though, since I can't possibly explain it. Just throwing in my random tid-bit of info for the day is all

^^Really? I thought me and deadead313313 both gave some good reasons as to why he it's okay he's dead...

Oh, god, that sounded awful.

His death was horrible - I meant to say that he should've just retired the Dead, and maybe continued with some bluesgrass stuff or something that didn't have him touring so much.

Poor Jerry... his body just couldn't live the life he was leading.

Hendrix and Duane Allmand man, if they would have survived, the mainstream music scene in the 70's and 80's would have been completely different (probobly a whole lot better) than it turned out being.
