They've all had their time. I wouldnt have any of them back, just like I wouldnt go to a band's reunion gig - pointless. huh.gif

Do hope I've not offended anyone but I dont think any of these people would be huge idols unless they were dead and new artists need recognition over our worshipping of long gone glories.

My 2 cents guys wink.gif

I think quite a few of them would still be "idols" if they were here. I also believe that we need to keep in mind that many of them made a huge impact on music without the technology we have today. And a lot of new artists will get recognition because they stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before.

Just a thought.

Never said people shouldnt take inspiration from such artists, I just get sick of the whole idolising thing in general, there seems to be too much of it (in my opinion) - we keep our eyes fixed on the past and dont move forward, sure I like many artists - but I dont believe they are any better than anyone else here on this site as people and potentially as guitarists.

Technology is irrelevant, it's just another way of getting entertainment to the audience, true genius will be recognised in one form or another.

I'd bring back Dimebag, Bob Marley and Freddy Mercury.

Not on the list, but I would like to bring back Chuck Schuldiner as well and see a live show.
