    I would like to see Robert Johnson, the man who kick started rock and roll, listen to him with a recorder in hand.

    Can't believe I left Bob Marley out!

    I think I'd go for Moon (with Entwistle) for circa 1973 Who blow-out too.

    It doesn't matter. When the re-animated dead are playing a private gig, it doesn't matter what kind of music they play. A zombie Keith Moon and a zombie Amy Whitehouse would both be freaking zombies playing a private gig for me. If I said, 'Amy Whitehouse performed in my living room last night. Yes, she's dead - it was her reanimated corpse," nobody would reply "all well and good, but couldn't you have got Bob Marley?"

    Did anyone notice a Nick Drake song being in a US commercial a few months ago? I wonder if his family gets any of the gig.

    Heard Mississippi John Hurt singing 'You are my sunshine' on a Chevy commercial on CNN too. I keep wanting to send an email to Chevy for that one, bringing him back to life a bit.

    There certainly are worse choices.

    Brian Connolly for example. Although The Sweet were awesome; when I was 15...

    He never played a private gig for me and my fiends and hasn't played a gig of any kind since 1995.
