One More Gig!

Blogs n Roses recently pointed me to ThisDayInMusic where they indulged a music junkie's wet dream, with this question:

Which dead rock star would you bring back to life for one more gig?

Here's the conclusion to the poll:
(I've also included the band they were from - for noobz)
  1. John Bonham (Led Zeppelin)
  2. Freddie Mercury (Queen)
  3. Elvis Presley
  4. John Lennon
  5. Jimi Hendrix
  6. Kurt Cobain (Nirvana)
  7. Bob Marley
  8. Jim Morrison (The Doors)
  9. Johnny Cash
  10. Jeff Buckley
  11. Stevie Ray Vaughan
  12. "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott (Pantera)
  13. Frank Zappa
  14. Ian Curtis (Joy Division)
  15. Janis Joplin
  16. Bon Scott (ACDC)
  17. Jerry Garcia (Grateful Dead)
  18. Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzy)
  19. Karen Carpenter (The Carpenters)
  20. Keith Moon (The Who)

Other artists outside of this top 20 included:
  • Joe Strummer (The Clash)
  • Stuart Adamson (Big Country)
  • Steve Clark (Def Leppard)
  • Joey Ramone (The Ramones)
  • Brian Jones (Rolling Stones)
For me personally, I would add:
Isaac Hayes, Barry White, Luther Vandross, Michael Hutchence (INXS) and Jackie Wilson.

Anyone who is dead, you'd want to see live one more time?
