Ok this thread is pretty simple. out of the 3 groups of performers, pick one you would choose to come back to life and play one last show (they would come back as themselves during their prime, and not as talentless zombies.)


The female edition of this same question coming soon, so dont fret!

I voted for Jimi as I think it would be very interesting to see what he'd be able to do with todays technology, Johnny Cash because, well, it's Johnny Cash smile.gif and I was going to vote for Freddy but went with my heart with Sinatra just because I love 'Ol Blue Eyes.

The best (famous) guitarists are like super massive stars in the universe. Super MASSIVE stars have a blue hue to them because of their extreme heat. Whereas our relatively tiny sun is yellow/orange (less heat). These gigantic orbs of gas burn sooo much more hydrogen they're much brighter, produce exponentially more energy and are much more prominent. You can only burn massive amounts of fuel, be so bright, and expel so much energy for only so long until you die out…

These guitarists like SRV, Jimi, Dime - these guys are bigger than life, bigger and brighter than anything you can really imagine and for that reason it seems they burn out.

I don’t know if this analogy makes sense to anyone else, but it seems kinda clear to me. =)

F*ck it, live like a rock Star.
