Groups you WOULD like to see reunite

Good news, Rage Against The Machine is back together! Original members as far as I know. They're mostly doing shows in Europe. IMO they are everything a rock band should be. Proficient, angry, and actually have something to say. Hopefully they do some more shows in the states. They could call it the "Told Ya So Tour"

no fucking way, good, I liked RATM, cools!

oh yeah

the smiths...but I have heard that is impossible 'cus the issues they got
 
Kind of off topic, but just found out NIN has a new cd out free for download on NIN site. Also put out a four disc set, which can also be downloaded for as low as $5. theres other download options for various prices. Trent Reznor finally got out of his contract and is doing things the way he wants to. A big F-U to the recording industry. How can you not like a guy like that. Sort of a Howard Hughes thing, "I'm rich, I'll do what I want, no matter how 'crazy' you think it is. Now piss off!"

PS. I am not Trent Reznor or affiliated in anyway with Trent Reznor. Don't want you to think I'm pushing a product. I just think its a really cool and necessary idea.
 
I would like a reunion of the Greatful Dead and in place of Jerry Garcia they would have Fiona Apple singing his guitar parts. Also, instead of Greatful Dead tunes they would primarily do Abba tunes and would sing them in Swedish.

And, oh my, special guest like- the Bay City Rollers, Cher, Gordon Lightfoot & Ted Nugent would pop in but only to do songs from Jesus Christ Superstar or Saturday Night Fever.

It would be a splendid night, indeed!
 
Seems we've tossed the 'gotta be alive' rule out the window? Good.

I say the original line up of Traffic. Winwood, Capaldi, Chris Wood & Dave Mason.

Or, The Tubes.

Oh, wait, The Tubes are back together and I'm actually going to see them in concert tonight. Nevermind.
 
i hope you have a great time. And ahh... I don't think they ever broke up. But they are great guys and fun to see.

Have Fun.

:D
 
I would like to see the Beatles, reunite, but alas, two of them have gone onto a better world-so they would be replaced by the two remaining members of the Who and all the remaining members of the Ramones (three drummers.)

But instead of Beatles tunes they would play songs by Billy Joel & Barry Manilow and they would sing them in a death metal voice to a salsa beat. Also, Michael Bolton would make a special guest appearance but only dressed as Michael Jackson and he would moonwalk! The finale would have Vanilla Ice singing "I Will Survive" with his hair on fire. It would be a spectacle indeed.

I'm afraid that there is no music promoter quite as bold as my ideas!
 
Slimedog, these are GREAT.
Thanks, Bill, I truly would love to see these shows. If I was dictator of the world I would hope to do some good but first on my list would be to force, by gunpoint, some of these shows to happen.

I can picture a version of "(I Love You) Just the Way You Are," sung in a death metal voice as three drummers lay down a salsa beat. And trying to figure what song the guests pick, Cher doing Jesus Christ Superstar, Nugent on Staying Alive, can be fun, also.

Of course, my biggest fear is someone will steal my ideas, make a lot of money off this & I'll lay drunk and destitute in a gutter in Baltimore.
 
I would like to see Fleetwood Mac reunite with some minor adjustments.

I would have Jello Biafra as lead singer instead of Stevie Nicks, who would be offstage having stagehands insert cocaine in her anus, and instead of good old "Mac" tunes they would do the entire Bat Out of Hell album by Meatloaf. Also,jazz great Al Dimeola would sit in but instead of guitar he would be banging a trumpet against a large oil can and complaining about his tight shoes. At one point it would be nice to have Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull come out playing the flute and dancing on one leg while Jello attempted to urinate on him!

The climax would have Celine Dion come out, stark naked, singing, "Hit Me With Your Best Shot," accapella (no musical accompaintment.)

How could any Fleetwood Mac fan go home disappointed?

Ah, what a glorious dream of a night it would be!

I'm almost on board. Substitute Zamfir, Master of the Pan Flute, for Ian Anderson and I'll buy a ticket.

It was very thoughtful of you to offer this suggestion but frankly I can only see this substitution as bringing the whole integrity of this production down.

You're right, of course. I was just trying to make it more of a celebration of obscure wind instruments, and exploit Zamfir's rabid worldwide fan base.
 
Yes, I didn't want to seem ungrateful as it is truly heartwarming to have your input on this project. I just felt your suggestion was, it I may be blunt, a bit absurd.

In retrospect, now that my enthusiasm has waned a bit, I see your point.

I've seen a lot of great bands at the beginning and peak or their careers, but the Clash eclipsed almost all of them (when they were on their game anyway, which appears to have been about a third of the time).

Better than Aerosmith third on the bill with one record out and everything to prove, better than Bob Dylan in 1978 with nothing to prove, but still kicking ass, better than Iggy Pop in a bar room that held maybe 300 people, better than Led Zeppelin two nights in a row (almost got killed that second night, but that's another story), better than Bachman Turner Overdrive - wait, scratch that last one...when the Clash were good there was no one better.










Well, except the Bad Brains.

There is still one more Ramones Bassist alive as well. Show some love for C.J.

I only saw the Clash once, in Boston '80, but it was the best show in a big place that I've ever seen.

Very true, Rob. I contacted CJ about this proposed show and no only did he decline but threatened legal action if his name was mentioned in any way with this.

Woops.

Yeah, HR has played with a lot of people I know in Los Angeles too. He has trouble keeping musicians around because he's...how do you say...out of his fucking mind apparently.

But I'll never forget the first time I saw Bad Brains. I went to rehearse with my band the next night and said, "Well, I quit. The band I saw last night has done it all. We're wasting our time." Ha.

I didn't quit of course. Not that night, anyway.
 
I would like to see a reunion of the Clash.

Obviously, Joe Strummer has gone on to that great big rock n roll gig in the sky so in his place the logical choice would be another British singer of the time namely Boy George. And instead of Clash tunes they would do songs by Toto, Styk "Lady", REO Speedwagon, Journey, & Jefferson Starship. Johnny Rotten would come up to sing, "Thank God I'm a Country Boy," and Billy Idol to sing, "Billy Don't Be A Hero."

Then, of course, for a little variety I would have Helen Reddy come out riding a unicycle backwards and singing, "Ace of Spades," in Japanese while Gary Glitter does unspeakable things to male porcupines in the front row.

The finale would be all the musicians onstage to sing, "Old Time Rock N Roll," by Bob Segar with George Michaels doing sign language and making paper mache hats for everyone!

I know this, or concerts like this, are so commonplace now but this would bring tears of joy to my very heart!

I would like to see Seals& Croft reunite but instead of them it would be Loggins & Messina in their place and they would do songs by Simon & Garfunkel while Flo & Eddie masturbated to pictures of Hall & Oates.

Oh, it would be a special night, a very special night, indeed!

It looks like it was a hot night in Carmichael last night. Hot to the point of Brain Damage.
 
Actually, it was quite pleasant as California appears to be on fire and the smoke masses are keeping the temperatures down a nit. I must admit that I usually have some refreshments before posting these reunitations but alas, it would appear that this cannot be the only 'cause and I should get this looked into promptly with a certified metal health expert, thanks to all concerned.


I would like to see a reunion of Guns N Roses but instead of playing their instruments they would all be on stools or lounge chairs shooting up heroin, then in the background a curtain would rise and a Contemporary Christian rock band (like Stryper) would start playing Guns N Roses tunes but with the words promoting Jesus and a wholesome lifestyle i.e. Sweet God o' Mine.
Cat Stevens then strapped to a wheelchair would be wheeled out and set fire to and pushed into the crowd. For a finale the members of Guns N Roses would vomit on the Christian Rock Band while Marilyn Manson (dressed as a giraffe) had sex with Anita Bryant (dressed as a giant orange.)

Hopefully the kids would put aside their violent rap cds and learn a lesson from this show.
