Thanks - once again - to Headphonaught for some lovely bloggin' stuff.
The 'Naught suggests the following game:
"OK... here's a game to play... Fantasy Festival :: 8 artists / bands - only one can return from the dead. Who & why?"
Here's mine....(and this counts for today only & in no particular order)
Santana: Saw them in the 80s, Saw them in the 00s - brilliant both times.
Julie Fowlis- was completed captivated by her band, Dochas, on a track on a compilation album I picked up in FOPP a few months back, so now I'm keen to find out more.
Ry Cooder: Mr Electic Electric - pure genius.
Bill Frisell: Long time jazzy fave.
MUSE: They had completely passed me by, but saw them on TV at Reading, and was seriously impressed.
k d Lang - sings so beautifully, it makes you wanna cry
U2 : Do I REALLY need to explain? ;-)
Stevie Wonder: Playing the old stuff
The passed away one: This was the hardest - there are so many, but I'd probably have to go for Bassist Numero Uno, Jaco Pastorius
