61Otis ReddingOtis Ray Redding, Jr. was an American singer, songwriter, record producer, arranger, and talent scout.
62Syd Barret

Syd Barrett would be my first choice m. Not to make an album but to let him relive a life he never got to live. Everyone else's on here died young but he died old and had not had a life for 40 years. No wife. No children. No love interest. No music. Nothing but a house, sister and ironically a bike.

Syd was a genius and should be higher on this list.

Actually his name is Syd Barrett. - Music_Lover123
