None of these
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.
"I have just been more than a little suspect of all the trades since the Willy (Scott Williamson) cash grab. That one left such a bad taste in my mouth that even a 1985 Dom Pérignon couldn't cleanse it." -- Creek14
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
i voted Lennon, but given the chance it's actually a guitarist i'd resurrect: Criss Oliva of Savatage.

yes, this really is how we make our living.
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.
