You can bring back from the dead three musicians. Who do you pick?

    Prince
    Copeland - just to see what he'd do in the modern era
    Don Severson - best man at my wedding, kindest human being I've ever known, and I miss *learning* new music with him. He was a successful guy who never lost the childlike amazement toward beauty in the world. Cancer in my jaw? I'll put down the sax and learn bass! I would trade all the music left in me for a day spent riding bikes and playing music with him.

    Leaving aside the moral ramifications/the ethical dilemma of thinking of them as real people and the difficulty a return would place on them/their families, and instead only considering artists I'd selfishly like to see perform/release new music...

    Marc Bolan
    Jacques Brel
    Lou Reed

    I'd say Nick Drake, but I don't think he'd like that much. Maybe Otis Redding somewhere in there. Syd Barrett, but selfishly I don't think I'd get any music out of him, so **** him. <3 Jobriath? idk, this is hard.

    Mark Kozelek has written at least half a dozen songs about him. His memory lives on.

    I feel like Jason Molina is pretty well-known and well-regarded by a very specific age demographic (maybe roughly 26-39... right in that range to be "cool" during that Saddle Creek/Secretly Canadian/Team Love/etc... boom in the '00s/early '10s).

    Wow, you only like half of their albums? But you're a fan?
    Hello Nasty! was brilliant. You're missing something.

    HUGE fan of pretty much everything before that since i was about ten years old ('Licensed To Ill' was the first album i ever bought and made a huge impression in so many ways). with 'Hello Nasty' they just sort of became caricatures of themselves. Mike D really started pushing that dorky voice thing, too much "sing-song" stuff, those stupid jumpsuits, Mixmaster Mike was too much of a focus, on and on... some cool tracks and production here and there after that, but they were never the same again.

    these days 'Check Your Head' and 'Ill Communication' are my favorites, but not even the whole albums. i actually didn't think much of 'Ill Communication' when it came out but (most of) it has grown on me considerably. no real desire to listen to anything beyond that again. once or twice was enough. i've got a playlist of 32 songs that i could listen to over and over again for the rest of my life. still enjoy the entirety of 'Paul's Boutique' every once in a while, but i wore the hell out of that one years ago.

    I’m bringing back those who left us too soon and still had plenty to offer.

    Jimi Hendrix
    John Lennon
    Kurt Cobain

    Zappa (just for the fact that the world was a better place with him in it, not to mention ending Ahmet's petty bs)
    Beethoven
    and maybe Hendrix, maybe Moon or Bonham, maybe Layne, maybe Cornell or Cobain, but is bringing back a tortured soul really doing them a favor?

    Probably not, so ****it, Lennon for 3.

    I’d guess maybe 1 out of 100 musicians know who he is, and maybe 1 out of 2000 people at best.

    He’s known and respected by those who know him, but that number isn’t nearly enough compared to his talent. Just the way it goes. A big loss, but I feel he’s one who will be much more famous dead than when he was alive, but it may take awhile.

    Throw a great drummer in there and that's a very interesting band.

    Jaco, Bonham, and Stevie Ray, and tell them to form a trio and see what happens.

    Likewise, I think Jimi and Randy still had plenty left.
