Musicians You Would Bring Back From the Deadjestina1292
The Contenders: Page 2
Buddy, so much in such a short time, you died in 1959 at age of 22, and we still miss you.
Buddy Holly is one of the first people I think of, with singer-songwriters who should have kept living...
"The Day the Music Died" was a very sad day.
David was more than music... He was creativity at its finest. Never one to shy away from originality for originality's sake. He was Visual, Visceral, Graphic and "Out There" when the world was stuck in the state of "The Formula" of success. His music was what shaped the stars of the world from Debbie Harry and Madonna, the Clash to the Trews and Nine Inch Nails. The creativity never stopped. Each album was entirely different. And always one to point out what he liked and hated in his own work. ( Tonight was not one he liked well, he claimed he was under so much pressure he put it out. He said in an interview that he didn't feel it was allowed to flow or develop in his usual process Which was a great experience because he really went back to being himself not what the sales or labels wanted.) These days there are so many acts that rely on a labels idea of what they are and not what they really are. His sound was unique and his voice was both haunting and warm all at ...more
Definitely want Bowie back. He was so musically active til the end. Gives me chills to think about what he would've created if he had more time with us.
Did more with music than any other artist. There wasn't a style that he couldn't put his own thing on.
I wish I was born a few decades earlier so I could really marvel in this legends workV 6 Comments
If Randy would live more, he would be the best guitarist for now. He had so much talent and it was so bad that he died.
No way he belongs here, he had SO many great years ahead of him - UFasten8Me
Seriously, no one added him until I did? Freakin awesome
Raised the bar on what was expected from metal guitarV 2 Comments
He put east coast rappers on the map!V 4 Comments
Layne, Layne, Layne! I pick Layne. He was so incredible, his voice and musical talent will never be duplicated. He was growing musically before he died, I can only imagine the incredible music he would have made had he lived longer. Truly an amazing talent! RIP Angry Angel We Miss You
Layne should definitely be in the top 10! He had a beautiful voice and it was taken away from us, I would love to see it back.
I would bring back Layne, he influenced many of his fans to beat their addictions. I think he would have continued to make great music with AIC and given the world a lot more great music.
How the hell is Layne at #31? Listen to his amazing voice.V 1 Comment
he is simply the worlds greatest with his inspirational music and talent, and all his children have followed in the footsteps of this legend. No. 1
He was a great singer who made some of the best music ever and he needs to be at least top 10 on this list. His quotes were amazing and deep. He was the best musician of his time.
Brought Reggae to the rest of the world. Great, great musician. - Wii360

If he still alive he is going to be one of the best Vocalists alive... Nobody will ever forget you chuck you were the best Death Metal Vocalist and you were genius.. And also you were the best death metal guitarist - nooreldeen
We miss you Chuck. I listened to Human while driving home and I shed tears knowing that such a great man no longer walks this earth. Always in our hearts though.
Death metal live long! Thanks chuck for inventing such a wonderful genre
How is the father of death metal not on here?V 3 Comments
This guy is supposed to be number 1. Died in his prime, his death was a tragedy. The best drummer that ever lived and along with the rest of Led Zeppelin made the best songs ever heard.
Why the hell isn't this higher up? This man made history every song he played was the work of god
My favourite dead rock stars are John Bonham and Cliff Burton. We need the world's greatest drummer back to life. - Nintendonix
This guy needs to be in the top 3. Never has been and never will be another drummer like him. The raw power and emotion is unheralded. There's no knowing what he and Zep would have accomplished. Long live Bono.V 2 Comments
Aaliyah I would absolutely bring back to life because not only was her music good and she was beautiful but she could also Dance I loved her Dance moves, she Dance so confident and made every dance step look so sexy but Hip Hop at the same time, and her face was worth a million dollars she was beautiful and her movies were really good Queen of the Damned is still one of the best Vampire movies ever Aaliyah we miss so much I just wish she'll come back to us I am about to cry.
Aaliyah was just entering her prime at the time of her death. She sang like an angel and had great dance moves. What I really love about her is her personality, she was never trashy. Aaliyah carried herself like a lady, she was very mature for her age and she was very sweet. The angels took her too soon, I wasn't even born at the time of her passing. RIP Baby girl, she really should be higher on this list - FlakyCuddles43
She was a pioneer, and was on her way to becoming the next janet jackson or pop icon taking over the music world. Music hasn't been the same since she left. Its quality has gone down dramatically.
I wouldn't, she sucked and couldn't sing. She was just a product of good production. - RnBLoverV 4 Comments
Prince was loved by everyone. Was a great artist in the 80s which in my 45 years was the best time in music.
Man such a great ARTIST. Simply put, I miss him!
With all due respect to Mick Taylor and Ronnie Wood, nobody could replace Brian. I would have love to see what Brian could have done post-StonesV 1 Comment
A great musician!
I would do ANYTHING to be able to hear more music from him!
Great guitarist, great singer, but his most prominent feature is his soul. He's pure soul, man.
I would do anything to bring him back.V 2 Comments
Best metal vocalist and probably the single most talented vocalist of all time.
My hero. Either Mitch, Cliff or Randy.V 1 Comment
Simply marvellous is the expression for this beauty! YOU SEE, THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOMEONE LIKE beyonce and her is that beyonces voice can easily be immitated but amy had a certain deepness but gentleness to her voice. It could speak to you. Her voice lurred you to go pass just enjoying the song to actually listening to the lyrics! Shes a legend! I wish I met her before she died. She didn't deserve to die so early
The queen of jazz. Should be higher on the list!
An amazing talent, gone too soon.
This cutie should be at #1. - FandomstuckV 2 Comments
