Have you guys seen this link...

Freddie has been leading but is now in second place.

If you could bring a dead rock star back to life for one gig, who would it be?

John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis, Kurt Cobain, Buddy Holly, Freddie Mercury? Or someone else?

This Day in Music are carrying out a world-wide survey to see which dead rock stars people would want to see again - for one night only!

Who would you pick? You can see a full list and vote on

I voted for Jim Morrison.

Though I do want Freddie back... Still, Morrison gets my vote for this one. Maybe next time, Fred...

Then this must be his minimalist phase, in which he does not produce any sound, motion or physical action. Metaphysical actions, of course, are an entirely different matter (or anti-matter, depending on actual scenario and personal preference).

He may not be a rock star, but I guess Jeff Porcaro deserves his spot back behind the drums.

Carl Wilson & Dennis Wilson - and then have the Beach Boys produce on final album with Brian in control.

And Freddie ofcourse.

I've got it narrowed to to John Lennon, George Harrison, Freddie, Kurt Cobain, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Roy Orbison. I think I'll go for Roy. It's so hard to choose. Couldn't they just ask who we'd like to KEEP dead?
