Re: In this history of rock n roll, who do you most wish wouldn't have died?
It would have to be Jerry . There was nothing that could compare ever!
And I’ve seen tons of bands from metal to shitty Cyprus hill.
Pink Floyd was even a let down compared to what jgb and dead and reconstruction and the rest of it put out.

So.... Jerry, right?

I totally get that. And I agree. But, he lived twice as long as Jimi (or Hank) and actually did a fuck ton of recording.

I *WISH* we had 3,000+ shows of Henxrix, or Hank Williams.

So, yes, Jer died too young. But he did enough to where it doesn't hurt as bad as some of the others.

For me, anyway. And I LOVE Jerry, everything he ever did. And I'm glad that there's so much of him out there.

Do you have a favorite Garcia time period? For me, it would be about 1981-82-- top of his game, electric technique wise, (discounting nodding off), and have you heard his Oregon State Prison show, acoustic just him and John Kahn? I think that was '82. After that, he lost the edge, but hell, Lazy River Road was as good as any song he ever wrote.

I'm glad he died doing what he loved, and at least had enough white hair to suggest a life well-lived

Thank god for the Archive ;)

It got too intense at the end of the shows knockin, and I ran out thinking I died .
But I love the seventies too. 60s is my least favorites beside the wonderful doing that rag and mountains .
Like the side stuff acoustic , solo .

John Bonham


Okay, so, yes. Obviously.


What does it say about the young man, that he died at age 32, and yet is 50 years later singled out among the greatest of the greats.... the only drummer mentioned so far.

Bonham was by far the best pure feel drummer (for the power) of his generation, and absolutely deserves to be considered.

Amen--- er, cheers!

Tom Petty.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75187366



You know, absolutely.

Unlike others who died too young, I really feel like Tom had no ceiling.

I truly believe he would have written another 500 songs, if he lived longer, and so yes, I burn with his loss.

Compare to, say...Jerry Garcia, whom I love.

By the end, his knuckles were swollen, his voice was shot from years of freebase and Pall Mall non-filters, etc.

He even said about writing songs, that he'd "rather fill in all the O's in the phonebook". Sure, he still had probably a few good years.

But Tom Petty? Ten more albums, guaranteed. In the fucking bank.

And it's all gone. We'll never hear them.

That's the crux of this thread :/

 Quoting: mikerock


I completely grok the way you phrased that.

Yes, the King, of course. His mind and body were in bad shape, but nothing irreversable. And his voice? My GOD!!

Even his last, final sessions, he is in fucking credible, and telling jokes (from the outtakes, Elvis starts a song and his dog barks... next take, the phone rings... Elvis says,

"Shoot the phone off the wall! Shoot the dog, too!")

and being a total bad ass. This was just before he died.

So, yes, I totally agree. Elvis had a lot of life left in him, and he would have changed the course of the 80s and 90s for sure, even as an "oldies" act, I know he would have re-invented himself somehow.

He also played a mean acoustic guitar, and I can absolutely picture Elvis having done an MTV Unplugged intended to be ironic, but ending up being mindblowing.

Abso fuckin lutely


He could have made old school blues records, more spoken word, DEFINITELY could have transitioned into hard rock, or even metal, for sure. Woah.....

Also, may as well have done all that, in addition to maintaining The Doors, which, holy fuck, that is something that I don't even try to imagine, because all that lost potential is exactly the impetus behind this tread....

Someone once asked him, Lemmy is it true you've bedded over 2,000 women in your life? And Lemmy's like, "Yuh, well I am 60 years old, so you do the math, that's not really very many", LOL.

Yes on Patsy Cline, definitely.

With her *everything*, she could have easily made a success of the mid-late 1960s pop culture, and totally reinvented herself, or even gone blue-eyed soul

I mourn her loss, for sure
