    If there was a chance of the return of your fav artist who has no longer been with us within the last 30 years.....who would you choose.


    Me,

    split between hendrix or prince

    You probably have more chance of banning drugs

    Kurt, probably. I'm not the biggest Nirvana fan but it would have been fascinating to see where he went next.

    Hendrix hasn't been with us for longer than I've been alive, and I'm almost 47.

    alright, this did cross my mind, but you get the gist of the thread?

    Now that we're ignoring the 30 years thing, ;) Hendrix for me. Not just because he was so good, but along the same 'to see what he would have done next' lines. Supposedly he was planning a jazz album, but it would have also been interesting to see where he got to if he'd managed to break free of the audience expectations for pyrotechnics and guitar humping. Maybe more than somebody like Stevie Ray Vaughan - another contender for the list - Hendrix probably had more potential to reinvent himself (even though SRV was in some senses the better guitarist).

    I'd have loved to see Hunter S Thompson write about the clinton v trump race and aftermath. I don't generally agree with necromancy unless there is a real need though, getting a soul back from the other side, just for your own pleasure and amusement, seems wrong to me.

    e2a this is in music. I'd say cohen but I think he was about done anyway.

    If we're broadening to writers then I broaden further and say Vermeer

    What I meant was that if only drugs were banned, both of those artists could conceivably still be with us
    Oh hang on a minute

    Am I making a deal with the devil to have them brought back as they were at the height of their powers, and are they going to be making a concept album about their time in Hell? If it's yes to both, then probably Lux Interior.

    Jimi Hendrix sprang to mind too, but I often find myself thinking If only Garnett Silk hadn't died so young. The greatest of voices, spiritual power, and not enough material

    Most recently Marcus Intalex. Massive loss.
    If really only one I'd go for Marcus
    :(

    Absolutely agree with this. Amy had potential to change her style and I'd have loved to have seen how that went. When you compare her style at the beginning her career to that at the end you can see she was changing in a negative way, probably due to drugs and alcohol. But towards the end she'd started to sober up. It would have led her to different styles. I think.

    Although im a huge Prince fan, he already did such great work. So for sure, Amy. Her first sojourn i think would have gone into hip hop as a rapper (if you watched the Amy documentary, was already writing rap rhymes and would have been brilliant). She would have done it of course in a fantastic, part spoken word, part singing style...and then done many more great albums....although a great vocalist she was a brilliant songwriter and had an interesting style with words. Truly unique.
