Yes, ladies, but they're dead because of their chosen lifestyle.
Too much talent, & money, & don't know how to handle it, except with drugs, & grog!
Of course, the same situation happens with MANY in the entertainment industry.
Sad, so sad, & wasteful of their given gifts.
Oh! Rice......'early air flight'? It was late '50's, early '60's! To me 'early' is '20's to WWII!
Yes, too true, Otis Redding, the Big Boppa, 'La Bamba' singer. What talent, & songs could've been written had they not perished in plane crashes.
Also Kyu Sakamoto.
I am totally unable to choose just one,as I have so many favourites.Of c ourse the inimitable Freddie Mercury HAS to be onb the list,as he immediately takes me back in time to some wonderful memories. But I also love Sade,and Roberta Flacks with their stunningly pure voices.
Could I have a group? It would have to be Manhattan Transfer who I saw at a dinner show and have NEVER found any comparable harmonies in all the many years since that evening! I have every single one of their incredibly wonderful albums...all on Vinyl too!!!
Ok, seeing as we are bringing people back from the other side, I would bring back Elvis to sing for me...if he couldn't make it, it would have to be Bear Rinehart (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4XeEs8o2eU).
Wow. Great link, Vee. Love it when people only need a guitar to do their thing. Yar boo and sux to autotune! I would sooner hear an honest voice. (*whispers* that Weird Al once sang in my face. Squeee.)
Concert. Seven rows back on the side aisle, one seat in. He ran up the aisle, jumped over my brother and sang to me. Maybe I looked like a rose (guffaw) between two thorns as I was between my bro and my other half. I grinned so much my face nearly fell off. LOL
Totally, donjo. Sorry, jonaj. I hope we haven't ruined it. Though, to be honest, I haven't been able to take him seriously since news broke out about him cheating on his girlfriend all those years ago.
I would love to have Freddie Mercury sing. We are forever going to Queen shows in the City, and I never tire of them. I am not talking about the ones at the local pub. Proper concerts. His theatricality and his voice live on through the shows. We saw one late last year. In certain songs, the performer was singing and they had a clip of Freddie singing with him, on a screen behind the stage. What a loss to the music world.
I've got to be honest - there's nobody I'm really interested in at present....I'll tell you who I'd like more than anyone....the Marx Brothers! (with a rendition of Lydia the Tattooed lady)...and I'm being serious!
