The Specials reformation, and CSN’s recent visit here got me thinking…which bands would you love to see get back together? Rock/Pop/R&B/Country/etc…living persons only, although partial reunions (without deceased members obviously) would suffice.
Although Gene Clark is gone, I’d fork over some clams to see Roger McGuinn reunite with David Crosby & Chris Hillman for a Byrds tour. The same goes for Rockpile (my affection mentioned in a previous thread) and The Jam on tour would really be something.
That’s all I can come up with so far…what say you?
P.S. I’m aware these three are highly unlikely…I just read the wiki entry re: what Paul Weller stated when asked about a reunion - “reformations are sad…Me and my children would have to be destitute and starving in the gutter before I’d even consider that…” Still, one can dream…
Did any of you watch [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bands_Reunited’this show about six years ago?
As for me, a lot of bands I liked that broke up have recently gotten together again, even if only for a little while.
Bands still broken up that I’d like to see, looking at Wikipedia Randy Bachman and Fred Turner are back together and touring, but I’d like to see Robbie and Tim Bachman join for an official BTO reunion.
I’d love to see Led Zeppelin, but I don’t think it’s ever going to happen again, barring another one-off for a worthy cause. It seems they’ve decided that there’s no way to top what they had, so they’re not going to take a chance on screwing up their legacy. As much as I would like to see them, I think it’s the right decision.
I understand that David Gilmour played onstage with Roger Waters at a benefit a few weeks ago, so I suppose a Pink Floyd reunion is not totally out of the realm of possibility…
Well, I’d probably mortgage my house to buy tickets to a Beatles reunion, but John and George would have to come back from the dead, first.
Of reunions that are a bit more feasible. well, I MIGHT like to see…
Greg Lake, Robert Fripp, Mike Giles, Pete Sinfield and Ian McDonald playing their older King Crimson material together again (it really IS the 21st century now- time for “Schizoid Man”!). But none of those guys seems like the nostalgic type.
No recordings but both these bands have reformed. *Midnight Oil *twice for disaster relief gigs and Split Enz every few years it seems. At one of the Enz reformations there was talk of a new album but it never happened.
The Alan Parsons Project (the original one, all together) which is unfortunately no longer possible since Eric Woolfson’s passing. Wouldn’t have been anyway, since Eric didn’t like to tour so there never was a touring version of the original APP.
I missed my chance to relive my childhood and see the Spice Girls when they decided they’d made enough money and cancelled the non-Europe and non-North American legs of their reunion “world” tour, so I’ll say them even though I still officially resent them for that.
ABBA, even for just one single.
I would have said the Jackson 5/Jacksons before Michael died, now I’d go see the remaning brothers but it wouldn’t be even a fraction of the amazing that it could have been.
Culture Club because I was too young to even really know who they were last time they did a reunion tour.
I don’t think Kraftwerk have ever broken up but they’ve been inactive for a while and they’re on my must-see live acts list.
Eurythmics would be beyond amazing. They released a single in 2005 but there was no tour.
Dixie Chicks need to stop faffing about with side projects and get back together already, mostly because I stupidly missed their last tour and they’re also on my must-see list.
The three original members of Sugababes doing anything together - anything at all, even a photo shoot or a stroll down the shops - would be fantastic and would send their early fans into a state of hysteria.
