With all the talk about the Led Zep reunion this past week, and the discussion here about DP reunions, I was wondering just what reunions others would like to see.
With so many choices, and so many incarnations of differing bands, be sure to list your specific band combination. And please only bands where the members are alive or name a replacement yourself (Jason Bonham for John Bonham for example).
Should give us a few minutes to think at least. Thanks.
I personally would pay to see an Argent reunion, Ten Years After (with Alvin Lee), King Crimson (in any incarnation), 801 and Mott the Hoople (Mick Ralphs). Just a few to start up.
All the original members of Van Halen
Steve Perry with Journey
Doobie Brothers with Michael McDonald
Whitesnake with John Sykes
Deep Purple Mark 3 of course,Rainbow with Dio,Whitesnake with John Sykes and Screamin´Cheetah Wheelies.
Captain & Tennille...
HA HA HA .....just kidding
A few of the top of my head.
Blackmore with ...DP mk3 or Rainbow (RJD or Doogie white)
Gillan with Bernie Torme (playing Mr Universe & glory rd CD's)
Journey with Steve Perry
Love & Money (Scottish band with James Grant on Guitar & Vocals).
To those sadly departed and missed:
Randy Rhodes (with Ozzy)
Tommy Bolin either with DP or Solo
Bon Scott with AC/DC
Personally...I would love to see the original line up of UK play together but it will never happen....Bill Bruford and Allan Holdsworth would never play anything resembling rock music and more power to them. But I can dream, can't I?
Argent would be cool....I saw a clip of Rod Argent, Colin Blunstone (Jim Rodford may have been there too) and they sounded great. But the original quartet was where it was at!
Crimson is still out and about.....if you can't satisfy your KC jones, then all the cool concert downloads at the DGM site will pull you through! I downloaded several 1973-74 era shows and they are fantastic!
If you want to talk about a band that blew a great opportunity look no further than Grand Funk Railroad. After a successful 2 year run with the original trio, they were primed for 1999...30 Years of Funk and a huge sponsorship deal from from Harley Davidsen...only to disband and now you have two different warring factions out there.
And the beat goes on.....
Very cool topic FCinnella!
I think if Blackmore would do anything he did in the past would be enough for me
no. 1 Rainbow with Dio
no. 2 Rainbow with JLT
no. 3 Angel with Punky or Giuffria
no. 4 Yngwie with JLT
no. 5 Iommi with Hughes
Im not sure where to put a Purple MK-III reunion....
Blackmore playing ROCK with ANYBODY!
Journey with Perry.
Trapeze with Chad on drums.
moody marsden murray coverdale and lord as whitesnake.
Loving these ideas.
The Angel mention is awesome; what a great live band they were. I saw them a whole bunch of times and never tired of them. When Bobby Blaze (Lillian Axe) played with them I got a laugh, he was my 'handyman' for a while in Florida and was driving an old beat up Datsun. It was kinda funny.
Bill's UK idea is brilliant !!!
I almost forgot, Focus with Jan Akkerman and Thijs VanLeer together again.
Trapeze with Dave Holland (as soon as he serves the rest of his sentence).....WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?!!!
Free-with Geoff Whitehorne standing in for the dear departed Koss......
It's gotta be Take That with Robbie..........
nah,just kidding,how about:
Guns n Roses with Slash
Ian Gillan Band with Mark Nausef,John Gustafson,Ray Fenwick,Colin Towns & Big Ian
Mk III of course !!
Whitesnake with Moody/Marsden
Rainbow with Turner/Rondinelli
What would you say about Pink Floyd with David Gilmour and Roger Waters? Although they had done it, but I didn't see it, so I wish they would come to Bulgaria......:)
Well, here we go.....
1. Soul Sirkus - awesome!
2. Crawler - the best british funky/ soul/ blues band ?
3. Trapeze - the Hughes/ Galley/ Holland version
4. Chevy - great Midlands based band from the early 80's
5. Nutz - Live Cutz LP a classic!
6. Blackfoot with Ricky Medlocke
7. Deep Purple with Tommy Bolin - a drug free gig!
8. Montrose playing their debut album!!
OK.......I'm stuck in atime warp of the 1970's/ 80's...but I am happy!!
Have a fbulous Christmas one and all!!
Great thread Frank.
My prayers were answered with the current Spice Girls reunion Gimme whatcha you want, whatcha you really, really want
Off the top of my head.....
Trapeze...Mel, Glenn, Dave
Crawler...good choice Chuck and Chris
Chicago...original line-up, and filling in for the late-great Terry Kath....Marc Bonilla. And playing nothing after Chicago "VIII" Ok, maybe a couple off of "X" and "XI"
Journey...original line-up. Playing the first three albums only...no Steve Perry for me, thank you.
Climax Blues Band
Mahogany Rush...original 3-piece.
Trapeze (Hughes, Galley, Holland ) - that's the only one I would really, really like to see again
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Pat Travers (Travers, Thrall, Aldredge)
my old band from 78-81
Ok, I'll have a go...
Blue Oyster Cult (w/ the Bouchard brothers and the recently ousted/retired Allen Lanier)
Jeff Beck / Jan Hammer
Beck / Bogert / Appice
Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac
Black Oak Arkansas (Dandy, Dirty, Goober, Ricochet, Burley and either drummer - Squeezebox or Dork Jackson!)
Motorhead (Lemmy, Philthy Phil and Fast Eddie Clarke)
My dearest wish would be to see a MKIII reunion. So if Santa, Glenn or DC read this, it could be a nice Xmas present
Also on the wish list :
DC & Glenn doing something acoustic like DC's "starkers in Tokyo" for example.
The classic Whitesnake line-up
Tony Iommi with Glenn
Rainbow with RJD
