Not a singer, but I would love to be able to bring back composer Bernard Herrmann, who would've been 100 come June 29th(Died on December 24th, 1975... aged 64 years)!

Frank Zappa. There are so many questions I'd like to ask him, and I truly miss the innovative music he created. I wonder what he would have done with the technological advances in both music production and methods of creation that have come about since his death and how he would have utilized them. I also think he would have done great things with the advancement of computer technology since his untimely passing.

Michael Jackson, John Lennon, George Harrison. Freddy Mercury, Lynyard Skynard's band, Janis Joplin, Mama Cass, Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain. They all left their mark in music.

Michael, as "wierd" as he was, was a musical genius. Nobody can and ever will touch him.

John Lennon had the world thinking about peace at least for awhile.

George Harrison, Freddy Mercury and Kurt Cobain were rock geniuses.

Janis Joplin, Mama Cass and Jimi Hendrix - Hello WOODSTOCK. Would have loved to have been there.

Ready Freddie - Freddy Mercury.

Keith Moon - The Best drummer that ever existed.

John Alec Entwistle - the Who!!

Jon Bonham - For without him, Led Zeppelin would never be known.

Harry Chapin - True reality

Elvis Presley - the King of Rock'n'roll.

This list can go on forever.

I used to go to this small rock club to see AC/DC play. This was 1980 to 1982. This was before they were well known.

In 1980 they released Black in Black which sold over 1 million copies in it's first three months of release in the U.S. alone. I think either your time frame is off, or you must of hung out at a small rock club in the Arctic Tundra.

Nope... You can check it out online. Go search L'aMour's in Brooklyn, N.Y Here's the link

I also saw Twisted Sister, Ace Frehley (from KiSS) and the Comets , and a whole bunch of 80's Metal bands. This is before they became famous.

AC/DC was famous long before 1980. With Bon Scott, they were rockin back in the early 70's.

I'd like to see Marvin Gaye come back to life too!!

Here's a better link:


http://www.crabsodyinblue.com/acdctourdates.htm


And it plainly shows the closest AC/DC was to Brooklyn was Syracuse and Buffalo in 1980, Madison Square freakin' Gardens and East Rutherford NJ in '81 (they sold out 3 nights straight @ Cobo Hall in Detroit in '81 & MSG!!!-- why would they play a hole in the wall in Brooklyn?!?!?) and in '82 after finishing the For About to Rock tour in the US in February (all southern and west coast dates) didn't even tour here anymore that year.

In fact I don't see that they ever played Brooklyn. Unless the Aug 24th, 1977 CBGB date is incorrect (there is a ? beside it).

I might be wrong on the year. It could have been before 1980. I did also attend CBGB's. Then again we don't if this person's listings are on board. They show a lot of cities around the US, but no venues. I know I saw them live doing Dirty Deeds, and it was not Madison Square Garden. I didn't do that many drugs back then. Oh... L'aMour's wasn't a hole in the wall. Some really big acts came out of there.

Actually it's a pretty spot on site. It is unoffical but has been mentioned by both Malcom Young and Cliff Williams as an accurate fansite. And they work with the band, as the band has given them permission to host some unreleased material and videos and they run a rather large fan club.


As far as calling L'Amours a hole, I didn't mean it as a derogatory comment, I just meant in comparison to a venue such as MSG. Most of the bands I liked back in the mid 80s probably played there. I have an old tape of Carnivore (a punk band with Pete Steele [RIP] that evolved into Type O Negative a few years later) playing there in '86.

The only point I was trying to make was by late '79-early '80 AC/DC were already way out of the bar/small club leagues and any band who sells out 3 nights in a row at Detroit's Cobo hall (15,000 seats+, I believe) isn't going to be playing a small club in Brooklyn, at least not an announced date anyway. And AC/DC isn't known for doing the off date warm up gigs like the Stones are famous for. At least not in the US.

I've met Layne Staley, Eddie Van Halen, and Chuck Negron (the voice of Three Dog Night), they were all very nice and cordial.

Dear Universe, citizens of the United States and people who supposedly know and love rock and roll and yet don't know it's roots:


BUDDY HOLLY.

Goddess, the roots of rock 'n roll are Black blues singers. Whites came along much later.
Check out Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf,Elmore James and take note of how many times their songs have been re-recorded by White bands. These were early electrified songs, totally copied by The Stones, LedZep, Cream, and basically everybody.
Buddy Holly was a genius, but rock 'n roll was already established by then.

I'm well aware of both of these facts, however he is still attatched to it's beginnings.

This thread is about what artist you believe died too soon and you would bring back... he died in his early 20s... and I stand by my choice in bringing him back. ;)
