Elvis making 80s music would have been interesting.

Stevie Wright (Easybeats) should have cleaned up his act.

Buddy Holly would have written massive songs in the 60s, he was truly talented.

Harry Nilsson, because of his incredible voice, and for creating the bizarre clip for Coconut, the song with just one chord.

Keith Relf (The Yardbirds), if only for his shiny shirt.

As in, died waaaayyy too young.


Lots of choices, sadly.


I think about this a lot. And out of everybody, from Jimi to John Lennon, and too many mention in between...

for me, honestly?

Hank Williams.

I think he would have really gotten pissed off at crappy 50's/60's pop, and would have single-handedly invented some form of rock and roll we can only imagine....

Except I *try* to imagine, but I can't hear it.

So I keep thinking about it.

1dunno1

My second choice, would actually be Hendrix, because he was SO DAMN GOOD he would definitely have played with everybody in the 70s and 80s (and 90s) had he lived, and I am 1000% sure he would have left his mark on metal, punk, 70s soul, country, prolly would have made a great record with Bob Marley.... oh yeah, can't you see it?

Can't you smell it?

Oh yes. I definitely wonder what Jim would have done throughout the 70s and 80s. Probably some pretty cool stuff, and probably some weird stuff too.

Holy hell, if he had dabbled in hard rock, it would be a different world today.

I do wonder what if....

Amy Winehouse!

The distinctive voice, heartbreakingly honest & vulnerable songwriting mixed with her nonconformity....she was still finding herself as a woman and was unafraid to take artistic risks.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76706035


Totally agree. She could have done anything.

And if you strip away the music, her voice was absolutely mindblowing.

To wit, here's Amy Winehouse with Jerry Garcia



This was a fun one to make, because both Jerry and Amy loved the blues, and soul.

They could have made a real album together, had they lived...

Re: In this history of rock n roll, who do you most wish wouldn't have died?
And of course "The King" Elvis Presley,the greatest entertainer of all time!Age 42 is too young to die! If only he had found his inner strength to change his ways and was stimulated by a new challenge such as he faced with the 68 Comeback special or the Hawaiian satellite concert.

Maybe if he had dumped his manager, found a new one,and had gone on a worldwide concert tour,he could have been even greater, and could very well still be with us today...I believe he lost the will to live and simply gave up. IMHO he died of boredom (first all the movies in the 60s with no live performances,and then the heavy concert tours in the 70s and all those tiring,repetative Vegas shows) that kind of treadmill grind would have killed anybody,and I am actually very surprised it didn't kill him sooner.What he would have accomplished had he lived past 1977,sadly we will never know...

I agree with Jim Croce,terribly underappreciated singer/songwriter,taken from us all too soon.Another great voice and also gone in a plane crash was Jim Reeves.He had a beautiful,rich baritone voice and could sing all types of songs apart from country.

Marty Robbins was great too. Of course Buddy,Ritchie,and J.P,who we mourn 60 years ago this month would have made greater impacts in music,and would have probably contributed and even changed musical direction in the 70s and 80s…

Of course all the tragic losses in the "27 Club" would all have gone on to even greater glory and had even a further impact had they lived several decades more, and now we have to put up with autotune "artists" like Bieber and Buble...

And even though this is a rock and roll thread,the greatest voice of all time must be opera singer Mario Lanza (just have a listen to him on YT),taken way too young in only his 30s,probably "whacked" by the mob though his death was never properly investigated.IMHO his vocal chords were truly touched by the hand of God....

I agree with an earlier poster, Elvis would have tore up the 1980s. He could have done anything....

I wouldn't post this because it's not viewable in the USA, but here's what I imagined an Elvis/Creedence Clearwater Revival collaboration would have sounded like...

Lot of votes for Karen Carpenter. I think that's rad :)

Zappa... holy lord. If he hadn't released about 70 albums (or more) in his lifetime, it would have been a tragedy for sure.

I always respected Zappa for his going to Congress (with 2Pac and John Denver!) to advocate against censorship.

It took a lot of balls to be Frank Zappa-- but I get the feeling he had some to spare.

Wow! Thank you for that! Sounded pretty cool on what could have been had the fates been kind. I believe if Elvis had kicked his manager to the curb,and had gone into rehab to clean up,and went a different direction he would surely had collaborated with other artists and experimented different music styles and even invented new ones. He could very well be one of the originators of rap! Have a listen to bossa nova baby he recorded in 1963, or too much monkey business and a little less conversation in 1968,and you can spot the first unofficial rap songs lol!!
