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.
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.
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.
