Re: A genie gives you the chance to resurrect a singer that died to soon
I agree with a lot of the comments I've seen in the thread. As to guys like Cobain, Hendrix, and Morrison, resurrection would only delay the inevitable, or allow them to become something other than what made them great. John Lennon? Like woy said, anyone who would put Yoko Ono on an album and charge money for it should be prosecuted. At a minimum, it's clear they've lost touch with music. I don't know that Lennon had anything left in the tank, ditto for Freddy Mercury.
My pick might be an odd one for "died too soon," but I really loved what Johnny Cash was doing late in his career with the American series. Yeah, by the end, his voice quivered so much you could barely recognize it. At the same time, the American series had an authenticity and simplicity I just loved. I wanted more, and that seems like a good measure when I think about this question.
How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
