    ...whose would it be?

    I'm thinking Louis Armstrong. Or any good operatic baritone. Armstrong would be an unbeatable party trick 😀

    If I could sing with a woman's voice, non-classical/opera, it might be Ella Fitzgerald. Imagine if both wishes came true – I could do the full Ella/Louis duets!

    Alternatively, I could be cursed with the voice of Bob Dylan...

    I would love to have the singing voice of the late great Stan Rogers.

    Satchmo had a crappy singing voice.
    I'd go with Tom Jones.

    Sober, while getting serviced by Nancy Reagan, or at his best?

    They are all different intonations, you know.

    Male: Nat Cole.
    Female: Stevie Nicks.

    And if I could play guitar: Jeff Beck (knocks Clapton into a cocked hat).

    As far as guitar goes, there are hundreds of people better than Beck, in the acoustic world there is Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Al Pettaway, Martin Simpson, Reverend Gary Davis, Robert Johnson, Tommy Emanuel, Doc Watson, Rory Block, Stefan Grossman, and many more. These guys actually know how to play stuff on guitar that is not just fast licks in a rock band.

    So much music, so little time. Sigh.

    Alas, I could never afford enough cocaine to get anywhere near suffering from that, but I made a solid attempt to consume enough booze and fags so I could sound like Tom Waits.
