Writer's Block: Time in a bottle

Imagine that you have a time machine. Which deceased musician would you most want to travel back in time to watch perform live?
If I had a time machine, I would not waste going back in time to listen to frickin' music! I would save some lives.

says the woman not really into music. :)

But, taking the question as is, who WOULD it be? Any thoughts?

My first thought was Jimi Hendrix--though strangely enough, I'm not a huge fan. My late husband was, so maybe that's why I thought of that. Crazy.

Well, I went to one of the last Cream concerts, and I did see Simon and Garfunkel and John Denver. But if I was somehow given a limited use "musical performances only" time machine, I think I would cheat and go to some place and time I really wanted to see regardless of the music-- like maybe a concert at the Temple of Heaven in the Forbidden City when the Manchu emperors were at the height of their power. The music would probably suck, but what a venue!

That's way cooler than Jimi Hendrix. :-o

Oh, I dunno. Everyone knows Hendrix. Try stopping someone on the street and asking the name of a Manchu emperor.

When I was a kid, I saw Joe Jackson at the height of his mod celebrity at Great Adventure in South Jersey. It was awesome. A few years ago, my sister was in a bar in upstate NY, listening to some older gentleman play guitar and sing. He was amazing, she said, and then she realized it was Joe Jackson and nearly swooned. :-D

Now THAT is a 'concert' I'd have liked to see.

Wow, if you really want the music, sitting on the other side of a bar from a great musician would be the way to go. Cozy and cool.

Hahahahahhaa! It's because I 'met' both you and her through Jon. So it's all his fault!
