    Some of the lore that goes along with the singers that died too young is just that. Sometimes its better off wondering "what could have been" than what actually would happen.

    Just an interesting thought, someone mentioned Andrew Wood from Mother Love Bone. If he doesn't OD, Eddie Vedder doesn't join the band, Temple of the Dog doesn't form, and Pearl Jam doesn't exist.

    If Kurt Cobain doesn't die, Dave Grohl doesn't become the front man he is for Foo Fighters. Two of my absolute favorite bands never form. If Cobain and Wood don't die does the grunge movement have the staying power it did?

    The one guy who wouldn't have sent ripple effects through music history is Lane Staley. His death was inevitable, but his constant heroine relapses really short circuited Alice in Chains. They wouldn't work on a new album without Lane and when ever they would try nothing materialized.

    Then again, I'll bravely admit that I like Post Grunge as well as Grunge.

    Otis Redding was the first one that came to mind for me. Just kills me that the guy was only 26 when he died. He certainly didn't sound 26.

    not exactly Lennon, but Nick Drake should also be on the list.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Yep, lets keep Dave behind the kit. The Foo Fighters have been an above-average band for a long time, but they never had the "it" factor that Nirvana had, that truly dynamic sound...

    Agreed, I'll also note Nirvana was not that inspiring live IMO

    i voted Lennon, but given the chance it's actually a guitarist i'd resurrect: Criss Oliva of Savatage.

    Sappy and mediocre, he lost his edge and was doomed to put out Paul McCartney type solo albums, good but nothing great.

    John Lennon. Simply because he was MORE than just a singer. He had the ability to change the world. And not just through his music. Think about that.

    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
