If you could bring any artist back from the dead to perform a concert in your favorite club, who would it be and why?

I’d like to thank Mark from Queens for submitting this question. He posts under the name KARNOV.
The burial place of Johnny and June Carter Cash in Hendersonville, TN.
Andrew: Honorable mention would have to go to Layne Staley, Roy Orbison, and Kurt Cobain, but without a doubt, my answer to this question would be Johnny Cash. I remember being a 16 year old kid and seeing an original copy of one of Johnny’s performance riders. Basically, all it contained was a request for a bar of soap and running water. That was the icing on the cake for me, and if I was to write about the actual cake, I’d need about 10,000 more words.
Mr. Layne Staley
Darius: Layne Staley. But it would have to be earlier Alice in Chains, around the Dirt era. After Jar of Flies and especially after the self-titled, he hardly moved on stage. Alice in Chains’ music is dear to me and Layne’s voice is indescribably profound. Kurt Cobain and Nirvana are a CLOSE second followed by Jimi Hendrix.
