Thinking about a great rock and roll band of dead people… difficult, right? What would fit together? And are dead rock stars keeping tabs on modern or are they stuck in their own era.
Plus, you and I might want to put Bobby Fuller together with Duke Ellington… but what exactly could they do together.
Hendrix and Louis Armstrong might make more sense, one invented and the other perfected improvisation. But again, surely Miles Davis would make more sense?
Arrrrhhhh…. there are too many choices.
Lennon or Presley or Brown for lead vocalists. And really, are we gonna make Biggie just a member of the posse. How many guitarists are enough guitarists? Should we leave Whitney and Amy alone, is it too early to send em back on stage…
OK slow down, let's start making decisions:
Jimi Hendrix lead Guitar
John Entwhistle bass
Two drummers:Keith Moon And John Bonham
Coltrane on Sax, Armstrong on trumpet
Lennon gets lead vocals.
Kurt for second guitarist
Brian Jones on everything…
Additional vocals by Amy Winehouse (it's been awhile, she can do it! I believe!!!)
Piano: Nat King Cole and Duke Ellington
And, if we want some rap? Big L!!!
How will this play out… OK, I know this started as a Hologram post and ended as some sort of Night Of The Living Dead… oooh, good name for the band.
You see the problem, right? I could go on forever… Setlist? For another post but at some point Lennon will invite Billie Holiday on stage to share "Yer Blues" with him…
