    If you could bring a dead rock star back to life

    If you could bring a dead rock star back to life for one gig, who would it be?


    John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis, Kurt Cobain, Buddy Holly, Freddie Mercury? Or someone else?

    I would liked to see where Ricky Valley's ( La Bamba ) carrer would have gone.

    Jimi Hendrix. I'd also bring back Miles, so they could team up and produce a sequel to Bitches Brew.I would love to see what Jimi could create with all the technologies available to musicians today, which weren't even invented when he was alive the first time. One can only imagine what he could have accomplished given all of these marvels today.

    Whilst we're talking about great guitarists such as Hendrix, it also crossed my mind that I'd love to have Duane Allman back to do just one more rendition of his awesome,ass-kicking Mountain Jam.

    Tempted to bring back Brian Jones so the Stones could play with their original line up. Or maybe the original Pink Floyd.

    Fantastic story, love it I didn't realise Frank was that tall.

    I was born in 63 and in Oz land - last time Frank toured here was 76', so I was a bit young lol.

    Flo and Eddie too, that would have been a lot of fun. Humbuckers with white tape hey, very sixties I guess ( or early 70's with Flo & Eddie). So Frank let it at we have to go- good god you could have been roped in to his craziness.....

    I've also seen Dweezil live here in Oz doing a Zappa plays Zappa show in Brisbane 2007- Had Steve V, Ray White and Joe Travers (the Vaultmeister) on drums and was great but not the real thing.

    Jim Morrison of The Doors. I liked the versatility of their playing and the variety of their music. Would he have matured and progressed? I would like to find out. I know that he was not a musician but .........
