I had an epiphany this morning while I was enjoying a fruit smoothie after an invigorating jazzercise class. How gay does that sound? Some of you are actually wondering if I did jazzercise, aren't you? Well just between you and me, I didn't, but I did have a fruit smoothie. The whole jazzercise thing was just an attempt at a cheap laugh.
Anyway, if you had the power for one night to reunite or resurrect one band for one show in your hometown, who would it be?
Would you bring back Elvis Presley?
Would you reunite New Kids on The Block?
So bloggers, who would it be. Make your musical dreams come true.
Well, my answer is Guns N Roses. I would love to reunite the original band and see them perform all their shit in one rocking night. It would be awesome.
Are they all still alive and haven't over dosed or anything?ReplyDelete
I loved Guns N Roses back in the day...LoL
Nothing wrong with a guy doing jazzercise...there is this one and only guy who is in my aerobics class every Tuesday and Thursday...LoL. Good entry.
There was a band in Boston in the 80's called Scruffy the Cat. I would get them together if I could. Not likely, as at least two of them hate each other with the white hot intensity of a thousand hells... Too bad. They were amazing.ReplyDelete
Of big, national or international acts? hmmm.... Oh, I got one:
Yes, nutty, I think most of the originals are still alive. But it doesn't matter because you have the power to bring them back from the dead if you have to.ReplyDelete
Do they still do jazzercise?
Tough question. I'm with you on GNR. I'd say either Jimi Hendrix or Led Zeppelin. Either one is part resurrection, part reuniting.ReplyDelete
Just reuniting? The Chaos A.D> era lineup of Sepultura.
The Doors. But, since Jim Morrison died in 1971 at age 27, I'm going to say that I want my powers to make the band members (including the living ones) to return to their prime.ReplyDelete
I'd give Jim Morrison a smoothie (and that sounded vaguely pornographic).
It'd have to be Pink Floyd. Without Syd. I would die to go to that concert.ReplyDelete
Yes Scarlett it did.ReplyDelete
And dream it you dreamer.
Cheap laugh worked with me!ReplyDelete
GNR might just be the ultimate pick.ReplyDelete
I want Tom Petty to reunite with the Heartbreakers. Final answer. I'm telling you, put on "Here Comes my Girl" and panties drop. Get those guys to play it live in concert, and the possibilities are endless.
But can you imagine the amount of skank (I apologize to all females who are offended by the previously mentioned word but I am having guy talk with Vince) that would be at a GNR concert. And drunk skank at that.ReplyDelete
You are right though about the panties dropping. Maybe we can get Tom Petty and GNR to play together, and then holy shit, who knows what would happen.
I'd bring back the Beatles. That's it. That's all I've got.ReplyDelete
no question. cool and the gang.ReplyDelete
Fiona -- I am shocked, and still shocked at your selection. I would have never seen that coming. Very shocking.ReplyDelete
Cher -- We are going to celebrate and have a good time.
I would love to reunite the greatest band to ever touch an instrument, Ace Of Base. I SAW THE SIGN!ReplyDelete

I would have to say ABBA, or did they ever break up? Just something to think about.ReplyDelete
I joined a jazzercise class once because my cousin Sue promised it would be fun. Wasn't fun, I keep missing a beat, had no idea what direction they were going and I got fatter, if that is possible.
The one. The only. The incomparable 2 Skinnee J's.ReplyDelete
Those guys rocked my world, and put on three of the best live shows I ever saw. If I could get them together to play a show in my backyard, that would be amazing.
the beatles or bob marley and the wailers..ReplyDelete
i saw the wailers last summer and it blew my mind.. it was awesome !!
So many bands... Elvis? The Beatles? Zeppelin? Then there's Miss Billie Holiday, Peter Tosh, Sarah Vaughan. But I have to say, honestly, I'd probably pick Zeppelin. They have been with me musically as long as I can remember. PS-- I DID laugh at Jazzercise, and I did wonder... heheheheReplyDelete
Shife... good question... The Beach Boys. All alive and healthy.ReplyDelete
This is a good questions! It would rock to have the gogo's all back together rocking out right? Hmm The beach boys that was a good choice, but I am afraid I am going to be lame. My choice would be Garth Brooks. Yes he retired and makes appearances every now and then, but his music was AWESOME I wish he'd come out of retirement, or do a duets album with TrishaReplyDelete
I would want to reuinite Nirvana. I was going to see them for the first time at the second Lalapalloza tour when it came to the Manchester (Tweeter) center or the old Great Woods as it used to be called.ReplyDelete
I was all about Nirvana back in the day, so that would be extra sweet to have them all together again. Ah, to dream.
Armaedes -- I have spent many cruel summers waiting for their return.ReplyDelete
Max -- I am not familiar with you band. I will have to do some research.
Phats -- I wouldn't have pegged you as a country fan, not that there is anything wrong with that.
Beo -- Excellent choice.
Hey, andraste. Did Scruffy the Cat do Moons of Jupiter? I used to love those ... cats.ReplyDelete
Be a shame to waste this on a band that didn't have a dead person in it, so ... I'll go with Keith Moon and The Who--provided they don't try to play that Pinball Wizard-shit.
Duh... Beatles. I realize it's the easy pick, but I would love to see them sans thousands of screaming teenage girls. That would be the best. With an opening act of Ray Charles. Heck yeah. Oh yeah, and they would all sound like they were in their prime, with their entire catalogs to choose from.ReplyDelete
NSYNC, fo' sho'.ReplyDelete
Arm! HAHAHA! perfect! they could sing all that she wants is another baby to me personally!ReplyDelete
phat's i laughed when you just called her trisha. you're on a first name basis i see...lol!
on a serious note, i have to agree... Nirvana. Even just once, in a small setting.
Yeah, t.leach, that was they. Earlier stuff was amazing...I missed most of their earliest gigs because I hadn't turned 21 yet (damn those stupid puritanical blue laws), but once I was in...I was in every freakin' weekend.ReplyDelete
Boom-boom-boom Bingo and High-octane revival were Brill!
I would have to say 2Pac for this one no question about it the all out king of lyics...ReplyDelete
If G-n-R is booked in Boise that day, I want Trixter to make a comeback...ReplyDelete
jersey boys are hot.
Well, first off, hello mrshife! Fabulous site. Second, I am going to have to go with a very cliche answer, but nevertheless, it is my answer, no holds barred. I would have to second Fiona and see the Beatles. Then, if I'm feeling especially feisty, I might see the Presidents of the US circa 1996 (not present day), just to hear Kitty and Peaches. w00t!ReplyDelete
So just curious, what kind of music did you peg me for? Please don't say gospel!ReplyDelete
there was a guy who used to karaoke Paradise City EVERY NIGHT at this bar my friend and I went to back in the day. But oh man was he bad! He had NO musical ability whatsoever but thought he actually was Axl and rocked the joint!ReplyDelete
He even had his own GNR Karaoke CD!!!
Oh wow.....this is so hard, I can't pick just one..The Eagles..no...Pink Floyd....no....Led Zeppelin...ughh...how bout if I can wish for one HUGE concert and bring them all back together as ONE band??....LOLReplyDelete
upon further thought, i'd also like queen to come back and the steve miller bandReplyDelete
If I could just watch their pyrotechnic light show just one more time before I die, I'd be a happy man.
But if the boys in grey aren't availalbe, probably the Smashing Pumpkins
GNR would be a great reunion....except for Axl's new look. Yuck! WTF was he thinking?ReplyDelete
Phats -- I have no idea, but I guess I wouldn't have picked country. Anyway you should be busy blogging now that Purdue finally won again.ReplyDelete
Ahh yes you are right my friend we FINALLY won the football gods smiled on us!ReplyDelete
Beatles, Jackson 5, Stone Temple Pilots and Nirvana for me!ReplyDelete
i overdosed on hair band hair once..ReplyDelete
you didn't go on Blog Strike did you, I am not sure I, or the blog world could take that!ReplyDelete
