Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

Would it matter that much if he still lived? He would probably have quit music and became a full time heroin addict by now.

I'd say, Bonham, Hendrix, Moon, Entwistle (sp?), Peter Green (his mental state, he's still alive) Freddy King.

Randy Rhoads, Cliff Burton, and I wish that Jason Becker didn't have ALS... pair them with a good drummer and you'd have an amazing band :[

Just had to get that out there.

We're ticking away, the moments that make up the dull days

#14
Rhoads, Dime, Django, Jimi, Bonham, Schuldiner, Burton, Zappa, Layne Staley(probably wrong spelling).

Tupac. I can't believe nobody has said Jaco yet?? The dude was ridiculous.

I was gonna say SRV but he's kinda implied along with Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain and all them.

You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

Roy Orbison
Richie Valens
Buddy Holly
Jimi Hendrix
Keith Moon
John Entwhistle
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Natasha Schneider
Brad Delp

I'm sure there are waaaay more than that. Imagine what those rockabilly guys like Buddy Holly could've done had they not died so young. I mean Holly's career lasted 18 months. Christ...
