Alice Cooper, Queen, Deep Purple, Dream Theater, Michael Jackson (unfortunately, too late), Megadeth, and I guess that's it.

Only bands? No solo artists? If so:

Blink-182
+44
Extreme
The Eagles (even without Fingers)
Iron Maiden (done)
Green Day
Backstreet Boys
Guns 'n' Roses
Yes
Platypus
Kansas
Def Leppard (well... if they play mostly covers, otherwise I wouldn't be interested)
Boyzone (Stephen was good, but I liked the new album and I think Ronan's the best one)
Asia
Chickenfoot

Of course, I'm only counting those that still exist or could theoretically return with their original (or most instrumental) members. That means no Queen (no Fred no Queen, no John no Queen), no Beatles (no John no Beatles, no George no Beatles), no Zeppelin, no Pink Floyd, no Bee Gees, etc. As for ABBA... I prefer to remember them as they were - I wouldn't like to see them in 2010, with decayed voices and Agnetta's breasts pointing in the wrong direction. Not to mention the fact she's already a grandmother makes it all quite unsettling. For the same reason I wouldn't go to see Bangles in the present.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I genuienely can't think of 15 bands I'd like to see.

I'd love to see an early Queen gig.

A Daggers gig again would be nice.

Maybe Bowie... Maybe Sparks... That is honestly about it.

I'll stick to my musicals!

I went to see Alice Cooper for the first time last year and it was amazing...I'd love for him to come back soon or any where near my area. I'd see him over and over if I could.

I desperately want to see Rammstein....which is difficult since I live in the USA. I really hope they come here at least once before deciding to retire, even though I know they would be really limited in what they can do performing because of strict codes here.

If Freddie was still around would love to go see Queen.

Would love to go see Korn!

And right now...those are my four biggest ones. There are some smaller bands like Five Finger Death Punch that I know I will probably see in the near future, I don't think they are quite big enough by my standards to make any list though.
