Wow, great thread!
Jimi Hendrix - The man single handedly revised rock & roll as we know it. Dead more than 30 years and his music is still awesome. Did anyone download
and watch the video of him playing the song FIRE at Woodstock? Unbelievable guitar work. He was so far ahead of his time. He couldn't read or write
music, and was self taught. Just imagine where music would be now if he were still composing. Even my 3 year old son loves his music. RIP Jimi.
Jim Croce - Another major tragedy to the music industry. One of the only artists I can think of who doesn't have a song I don't like. RIP Jim.
Stephen King - What an imagination. I've read every novel he's put out, both as himself as well as his pen name Richard Bachman. The unedited
version of The Stand is my all time favorite novel. The thing that is so intriguing about his writing, to me anyway, is that I can relate to almost
every character in some miniscule way. Man, having a beer or 6 and/or smoking a bone with him and talking about ideas would be unbelievable. Too bad
he's sober these days!
Tesla - The genius of the man is amazing. How interesting would it be to just talk "shop"?
Pontius Pilot - I would love to know the "real story".
