    All my favourite musicians are still alive

    #5 10 years ago

    None, I do not care about people because they are popular. If I had one person to choose to talk to it would be George Strait.

    He didn't say that have to be popular...

    #11 10 years ago

    I really put some thought into just three so here it is.....

    Johnny Cash for sure - influential in blues/country movement and the original badass

    Freddy Mercury - Sexual preference aside, he had one of the best voices of the 70's era and led a flamboyant life...He'd be interesting for sure.

    Sid Barrett - Just for laughs

    #18 10 years ago

    Bob Dylan
    Bob Dylan
    Bob Dylan

    #20 10 years ago

    Interesting topic!

    1. W.A. Mozart - the first rock star
    2. Layne Staley - a troubled soul
    3. John Lennon & George Harrision - it's the Beatles

    Honorable mentions - everyone that has been mentioned (except for Bieber plus: John Bonham, Keith Moon, Kurt Cobain, and Michael Hedges

    Yes, that's a great clip. Gotta love his transparency, no beating around the bush for Warren. There are some other classic clips with him and Letterman that are worth checking out. I guess they were pretty good friends.

    #27 10 years ago

    Some nice picks here...

    First record I ever bought was Jerry Reed, "Sugarfoot Rag", great choice.

    Read somewhere that Freddie M. preferred women, actually, he was a switch hitter..

    #28 10 years ago

    Zappa
    Hendrix
    Mozart

    #29 10 years ago

    Peter Steele
    Biggie Smalls
    Cab Calloway

    #30 10 years ago

    I'm not sure why i'd want to have a conversation with a dead musician... The only things I want to say to musicians are only relevant to the ones I like who are still producing music, and what i'd want to say is mostly hostile and they probably don't want to hear it, and none of it is terribly profound.

    What is the allure of it? What sort of things would you want to talk about?

    #31 10 years ago

    John Lennon
    Michael Jackson
    Jim Morrison

    #32 10 years ago

    +1,000,000

    Also, Bing Crosby

    #33 10 years ago

    Mozart, John Lennon and Elvis

    #34 10 years ago

    marvin gaye

    #35 10 years ago

    WOW! how did I miss that one?

    #36 10 years ago

    Zappa
    Miles Davis
    Charles Mingus

    If I could talk to some more I guess Teddy Pendergrass and Gil-Scott Heron would have to be in there.

    Personally, as much as I'd like to have a conversation with them, I'd like to see them all perform together and release it instead.

    #37 10 years ago

    A lot of these mentioned already would be on my list.

    I've been currently listening to '70s stuff lately. One of these bands "The Carpenters", was a band I have to admit, never really gave a good listening to...

    Holy cow! The female lead has a incredible voice. Probably, one of the best (if not the best), I have ever heard!

    So my choice would be Karen Carpenter.

    #38 10 years ago

    I'd rather hear a performance than talk:

    Tupac
    Robert Johnson
    Hank Williams Sr.

    #39 10 years ago

    as a musician myself I would love to have a chat with the people I listed. Questions like: How did you come up with the idea for this? What piece of gear did you use on this song? Who were your influences?

    Edit:

    actually it would just be great to sit in a room with those three or four and listen the conversation that they would have.

    #40 10 years ago

    New list:

    Jeff Buckley- (one of the most talented singers in American history, drowned in the Mississippi singing "Whole Lotta Love")

    Bob Marley (excuse me while I light my spliff)

    Rory Gallagher (my all time favorite guitarist, every bit as good as Page)
