5 Artists I Would Like to See (If I Had a Time Machine) Vol. 4
The artists listed are either:
B) still alive but I have no desire to see them now
C) the band is no longer performing together
D) some/all of the above
1. Jackson Browne, 1977
Jackson Browne is one of my personal favorites. An amazing writer, not to mention an amazing musician. I would love to transport back to the 'Running on Empty' tour to witness Browne in the absolute prime of his young career.
song I would most like to see performed live: "Late for the Sky"
2. Led Zeppelin, 1970
Led Zeppelin were quickly becoming the biggest thing in rock n' roll around 1970. There is no doubt I would take them on their tour to promote the album 'Led Zeppelin III' .
song I would most like to see performed live: "Your Time is Gonna Come"
3. Mötley Crüe, 1986
The crowd, the fashion, the experience that was Mötley Crüe in the 80's is something I would never pass up given the chance. My uncle had a poster of the band performing live, I cannot tell you how many times I snuck into his room and stood and stared at those images. Mötley Crüe had to be one of the best concert experiences in the decade of excess.
song I would most like to see performed live: "Home Sweet Home"
4. The Kinks, 1972
The Kinks created their own sound out of the British invasion time period, and it just so happens to be a sound I really enjoy. Brothers Ray and Dave Davies were notorious for fighting on stage, but when they weren't fighting...they were creating some of the greatest songs of all time.
song I would most like to see performed live: "Animal Farm"
5. The Police, 1983
Three men, three huge ego's. The Police only lasted from 1977 to 1983 before dropping the curtain on one of the most unique and successful bands of that time period. Given the opportunity, I would never pass on seeing the Police at the peak of their artistic genius.
song I would most like to see performed live: "Wrapped Around Your Finger"
