    Out of all the bands no longer in existance, which would you have most liked to see?

    A few of mine:
    Alice in Chains
    Soundgarden
    The Smashing Pumpkins
    Led Zeppelin
    Rage Against the Machine.

    I was meant to be born in '76, not '86, I'm telling you!

    Oooh, good one!

    I'd have to say:

    Led Zeppelin
    Pink Floyd
    The Stone Roses
    The Smiths
    The Who

    That will do for now. Ohh, and Jeff Buckley.

    Beach Boys - were they any good live?
    Bowie - in his Ziggy days - providing I don't have to dress up!

    I saw them. It was bizarre and rather boring, Morrison disappeared underneath the stage for 20 minutes while they were playing "Light my fire" and the rest of the band kept playing the same piece over and over. It was really annoying.

    I also saw

    Led Zeppelin (twice)
    The Who
    Jimi Hendrix
    etc...

    Joy Division (obviously)
    Led Zeppelin
    Love
    Nick Drake
    Television
    The Clash
    Johnny Cash
    Woody Guthrie (not that I think he would have been anything special live, but it would have been nice to meet him)
    The Who
    The Allman Brothers (I have seen them, but I would have liked to see them when Duane Allman was still alive)
    Beatles
    Soundgarden
    Gram Parsons
    Ray Charles
    Marvin Gaye (especially w/ Tammi Terrell)
    Beach Boys (again, I have seen them, but it would have been nice when they were whole and not in their 60s)
    Public Enemy
    Jeff Buckley
    Elliot Smith (would have seen him, too, if it wasn't for a last-minute flakeout from stupid Kathy Colby)
    Richie Valens (white-washed Hispanic kid from suburban LA; a man after my own heart)

    It might have been cool to see the Manic Street Preachers; I don't know

    Van Halen played at one of my dad's birthday parties in his backyard, when they were still just a local band without a record deal. That would have been so awesome to be there.

    In this vein, it's my understanding that William Shatner recorded an album of his vocal stylings. Wouldn't it be great to see him singing live?

    Shatner and Nimoy did some great stuff. And do I hear a chant for the Partridge Family?

    Okay seriously though, I would have loved to have seen Sonny and Cher. I think Sonny was a great guy [couldn't sing but a great guy] and I still like Cher.

    Rage Against the Machine. Political fury at its best!

    Without a doubt I'd love to see Led Zeppelin in concert. Here is a list of concerts I've seen - Kiss, Triumph, Kansas, Ozzy Osbourne, and Fleetwood Mac. All very cool. But I never saw Led Zeppelin and I wished I did.
