Thanks Rock Fan,

That's how I and my geeky friends used to pass time in the Midwest: Lawrence Welk episodes that never were. Just to imagine the king of white bread spouting out things like: "Wunnerful words frum de boyce in DE-VO, 'Vin a problem comezalong, you must vip it gudt.'"

Amazing impression!
(I could even hear the gurgling bubble machine!)

Sweelinck, Tallis, Tye, Purcell, J.S. Bach, Buxtehude, Mozart,
Beethoven, Franz Liszt, and other great classical composers,
plus Scott Joplin, playing their own compositions.

I'd have to be allowed to record them with
modern equipment while I was at it.

Well, my impetus for the Britney Spears sings standards is that I don't think she can really sing, and that she'll mature enough out of the Madonna-lite dance image she has to make something out of commercial character. But I could be wrong; could she be the next Diana Krall? :-)

If one could time travel back to 1978, the sense of WTF??? about Rod Stewart crooning standards would be a Niagara Falls 150 decibel roaring.

Son of "Flintstone" says:

"Britney Spears sings The Great American Songbook. With lush orchestra. Preferably live on TV."

I say:

That might just happen someday. Who would think that Rod Stewart would be singing songs like that; back when he was singing "Do You Think I'm Sexy?"?

When I was growing up back in the 1970s and 1980s, as far as the baby boomers and even the generation Xers were concerned, Frank Sinatra was the epitome of square; it was "easy listening" music for your grandma and grandpa. Now everyone wants to be Frank Sinatra.

Everyone laughed at Sinatra when he tried to be more "current" by recording songs like "Mrs. Robinson" and "Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown" (stuff that now sounds dated); but now singers from all eras from the bay boomer generation; through generations X and Y; are turning songs that were the foundation for singers like Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Tony Bennet...stuff by Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Harold Arlen, Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer.

I saw Lamb done by Genesis cover band Musical Box earlier this yr. Most excellent, and they have acquired the original film slides, costumes and instruments. Never saw the original, but even Gabriel gives it a thumbs-up.

I would have loved to have seen The Jefferson Airplane make an appearance on "Bewitched" back in '67 or '68, playing as the house band of the witches. I can imagine the look on Darrin's face as he hears Grace Slick belt out "Two Heads" while Sam tells him "she's the most powerful one of us all!".

And yes, I know Boyce And Hart made an appearance on the show in 1970.

Oh, I'd love to have those vanilla cuties, the Lennon Sisters, sing Sheena Easton's "Sugar Walls."

Beatles perform the Sgt. Pepper album live, full range of musicians, in a concert hall. Quiet, respectful audience. No screamers drowning out the performance.

Benny Goodman's 1938 Carnegie Hall concert. And recorded in hi fidelity stereo.

1975 KISS lineup (Criss, Frehley, Simmons, Stanley) Christmas album. Ditto for the '67 'Stones.

Britney Spears sings The Great American Songbook. With lush orchestra. Preferably live on TV.

Cartman's (South Park) entire FAITH+1 album.

Updated SING ALONG WITH MITCH & THE GANG (Miller) album, but done as RAP ALONG WITH MITCH & THE GANG -- songs by Ice T, Vanilla Ice, Snoop Dog, LL Cool J, etc....

THE LAWRENCE WELK SHOW episode(s) devoted to rock music, 1967+ songs--Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Zeppelin, 'Stones, Boston, Kiss, etc....

Perhaps, though judging by his recent output, it's just not the particular past glories upon which he wishes to coast at the moment. Better to do symphonic versions of the solo material, cover other people's songs and reissue So in a mahoosive "Who can actually afford it in this economy?" anniversary version.

And that incident with Cusack coming onstage with the boombox at the beginning of "In Your Eyes," was utter rubbish, for anyone who didn't see the footage. He just walked onstage, handed him a boombox and walked off. Not the sort of spectacle the masses hope for, Petey.

A GENESIS reunion with a tour for Lamb Lies Down on Broadway would be at the top of my list too.
Besides Phil's health problems, what is up with Peter? Is his ego too big to reunite with his old band mates?

Darn space & time!

I would have loved to see the original Kinks--Ray and Dave Davies, Mick Avory and Peter Quaife--back in the studio one last time. Their last few studio albums were no way for this celebrated band to go out. I'm convinced they had at least one last classic album left in them.

Also, a Faces or Small Faces reunion would be amazing. (Glad to see them get inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!)

I would love to see a "Police" reunion but I don't think it'll happen. I love "Enigma" music but I highly doubt that will also happen on stage. Michael Cretu is the mastermind behind it. It would be impossible for him to perform that music live. (As he stated before). :(

Thanks for the reply, I had no idea. That sucks for him a lot more than it does for us.

Spinal injury. Can't play the drums anymore.

What is wrong with Phil?

Chester Thompson would have to play drums if it was an extended tour. Phil might be able to do a one off show.

Daniel E. White says: I am all in on a complete Genesis reunion!

Yes! And Peter MUST pull all of his old costumes out of the attic. As far as I know, he was THEE first to pull so much music, storytelling and imagery together in live 'Rock' performance. What a great time for music that was!!

The 75 Texas dvd that just came out was from the Numbers tour. I am highly disappointed in the audio and video quality of this disc. I do no recommend.
Then he took a bath, laughed out loud! Thanks Viva...
