Musicians You Would Bring Back From the Dead

61 Syd 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

63 Selena Quintanilla-Pérez Selena Quintanilla-Pérez Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer.

Yet another artist that died while entering her prime. She will never see the success of her crossover album - FlakyCuddles43

Amazing and beautiful person. Never forgot where she came from.

Selena is Timeless! Her voice, her style, her moves. All sounds fresh today as the day it was recorded. Selena continues to inspire and pick up new fans thanks to her timeless talents and the well made movie on her life starring Jennifer Lopez. Selena will live on now and forever!

67 Warren Zevon Warren Zevon

One of the greatest songwriters of his time.

Most fabulous keyboard artist. died way before his time. Many singers covered his songs like "Hasten Down the Wind". He recorded his last cd while he was dying from lung cancer, surrounded by a lot of musician friends.

68 Ronnie Van Zant Ronnie Van Zant Ronald Wayne "Ronnie" Van Zant was an American lead vocalist, primary lyricist, and a founding member of the Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd.

A truly gifted southern poet. The loss of Ronnie and Skynyrd after only 4 years of professional recording is a huge blow to music. Can't forget to mention the brilliant Steve Gaines who also died in the crash.

69 Hillel Slovak Hillel Slovak

Although his death lead to the rise of my favourite ever guitarist - John Frusciante - this guy would have just got better and better, and become a legend in his own right, such a loss to the world. RIP Hilel

He was the beginning of one of the best bands I've ever heard. If he was still alive, the chilis would bring funk to the 21st century.

ARE you kidding me. The MASTER or MUSIC, simply put. I wish I could have seen you live! Everybody only covers your music, I know that real thing had to be SOMETHING SPECIAL. 200 years, and you are still the best!

He was a prodigy and genius, it would be cool if he came back hundreds of yrs after hiscdeath.
