    Of all the musicians that died early, which one would you really want to bring back to life in their day. Let's set a guideline that they had to be 35 or younger, and have played on no more than 4 albums. I'll start:

    1st: Jim Croce. why? His only 2 records were chock full of songs that we all know and sing along to this day. His musicality and lyricism are at the pinnacle of singer/songwriter craft.

    close 2nd: Bradley Nowell of Sublime.

    1st: Cliff Burton - Metallica
    2nd: Randy Rhoads - Quiet Riot and Ozzy

    Shannon Hoon - Blind Melon

    Andrew Wood--Mother Love Bone

    +1 I have a feeling Cliff Burton was far more important in the early development of Metallica songs than anyone gives credit for. I'm pretty sure Hetfield has said the same. There are early videos of them playing with him on Youtube, you can easily see how great he was even though he has no problem being behind the limelight. Who knows where they might have gone with him, they were (and still are) fantastic in the early days, but the newer stuff can be a bit uneven, depending on your tastes.

    +1 Jim Croce

    Mozart?

    Yeah check them out, the origins of Pearl Jam. Plus some where's theirs a interview with Andrew sitting in a bar with a Blackout game right behind him.

    Always wondered how much more Joy Division would’ve put out if Ian Curtis didn’t off himself

    #18 1 year ago

    Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix

    #19 1 year ago
    Quoted from StoneyCreek:and have played on no more than 4 albums.

    Sorry about not following the OP's rules but I can't help myself:
    1- Keith Moon
    2- Jim Morrison

    #20 1 year ago

    Chris Cornell

    #21 1 year ago

    The original rule of 4 albums does make sense with the OPs original idea. Otherwise, you could just talk about all of those who died young. And that means one thing: Hendrix.

    The big bopper
    falco
    Sylvester
    Peter “James” Bond
    “Smoking” Joe Frazier

    Not many answers here are following OPs 'rule' even Croce had 5 studio albums.

    Hoon and Curtis are solid answers. Jerry Garcia probably played on closer to 104 studio albums

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    falco
    Sylvester
    Peter “James” Bond
    “Smoking” Joe Frazier

    +1 on the Big Bopper, the the others not so much.
    Falco=40
    Sylvester=41
    the other two are a research project. although a quick search on Peter Bond reveals that he retired after 10 years and is still alive?

    guilty! I missed the first two records that didn't chart at all.

    I didn't like your dumb ground rules so I made my own. Anybody born any time, real or fictional, who made records and died!

    Peter "James" Bond was one of Spinal Tap's many drummers; I believe he died in a freak gardening accident. They were never the same without him.

    Smoking Joe Frazier had golden pipes!

    Oh shit

    Yeah, both Eddie Murphy’s career and Rick James need immediate resurrection.

    Chester Bennington - Linkin Park...
    And some already mentioned Chris Cornell.. both left so close together..

    #33 1 year ago

    Five albums, but Ronnie Van Zant, Lynyrd Skynyrd, on the 45th anniversary of the plane crash that ended his life.

    #34 1 year ago

    <Jim Croce clawing desperately at the inside of his coffin> "ARRGGGGHGHGHGH!!!! Time in a Bottle THIS IS NOT WHAT I MEANT AHHHHHRRRGHGH!!!"

    +1 Landrew - Mother Love Bone

    Jay Reatard.

    Went with Lemmy, but then saw the rules, and couldn't delete my post, so apologies for bending the rules... I'll still go with Lemmy.

    Read somewhere that Brian Johnson has never done "It's a Long Way to the Top(If You Wanna Rock and Roll)out of respect to Scott

    I think the band just doesn’t want to hire a bagpipe player these days.

    I tease my wife I am gonna get some bagpipes just so I can play this song!

    #44 1 year ago

    I can't believe no one has said Kurt Cobain

    Others I'd like to see - I'll give y'all an eclectic mix

    Amy Winehouse
    Andrew Wood - I'll second his inclusion - he was such a huge part of the early grunge
    Buddy Holly
    Patsy Cline
    Tupac (although he also did 5 albums)
    Ronnie Van Zatt

    and finally....

    Hank Williams - although he was well above the 4 album cut-off.... but if he hadn't died he would have cut records for decades

    Rules are no fun!

    Eddie Meduza and Lemmy

    #49 1 year ago

    How about Keith Richards... oh wait, I made a mistake... I thought you said to name a musician who "looks like they are dead" not actually dead.

    I think I’m ignoring the rules but…..

    Robert Johnson, just to hear him play an electric guitar.
