The surviving Doors (I think all 3 of them, but maybe only 2) did a tour with Ian Astbury of the Cult on vocals, and while I didn't see it, I truly wished I had when I saw the Cult live for the first time a few years later. That pairing seemed downright odd to me when I first heard of it, but after seeing/hearing Ian on stage with the Cult I'm betting that it more than worked...

None, There have been some great bands over the decades, and great music made by them, but I feel when a memeber or members die or leave, never to come back, they should call it quits, and move on and do other projects. Let it lie. Look back on thier glory days which are over and done with and just move on. Let it be.

Talking Heads. Everyone is on board, except for DB. Maybe one day...

Triumph reformed for Rocklahoma in 2008, but I guess they haven't done much lately, huh?

The Talking Heads did perform at their RNR Hall of Fame induction just a few years back.

G.B. has passed. The rest of the guys should get together with Alice though.

I heard that Doors concert with Ian Astbury on lead vocals was great. A friend of mine saw it and said Ian did a great job, the closest thing we'll get to Jim. With all 3 Doors I believe.

Talking Heads for sure. Fugazi is another big one, though they never officially ended, they just kind of...stopped. Gang Of Four, also. They got back together for a while back in '04 through mid '06, but I must admit I'd love to hear them reforming for good, instead of this herky-jerky nonsense. Some bands you almost wouldn't want them to re-form, in case they've lost their magic. Minor Threat and Black Flag spring to mind; though it's worth noting that when I saw the Bad Brains in DC a few weeks ago, they still had it, so who knows?

I want to see a reformed Beatles, circa 1966, in holographic projection like they did with Tupac at Coachella this year. They can even play some "Revolver" songs they didn't play during that last tour. Or a 1969 holo-version, I'd like to see someone program a setlist of what the "Abbey Road" era Beatles might have sounded like if they had toured. Or just program a re-creation of the Shea Stadium show or Rooftop concert. I guarantee it would be a lot more exciting to see than Tupac resurrected.

"Michael Topper says:

The Doors would seem impossible to do well without Morrison, but have any of you ever seen Jimmy Fallon's impersonation of him? His voice is dead-on *exactly* identical to Morrison's, it was eerie. And he had the stage moves down pat. I know it sounds strange to have a comedian fronting a reunited legendary rock act, but I think it would actually work, his impersonation is *that* good. It put Val Kilmer to shame!"

That's an intriguing thought. Yeah, was less than impressed with Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison.

I've seen Jimmy Fallon's "Tebowie" which is always fun, and he has the David Bowie voice and mannerisms down pretty good. They always remove the youtube unfortunately. But I didn't know he does Jim Morrison (runs off to youtube).

edit: There was a Jim Morrison impersonator I saw, I think it was on Leno one night not too long ago. He was actually pretty good. I can't seem to locate a clip anywhere online but I'm still looking. Having never seen Morrison Live in person, I can't really compare. But this person had a Very masculine voice. I don't know if it was a bit of an over done charicature , But I thought he was good!

Jimmy Fallon, I youtubed it, the only thing I can find is him doing Jim Morrison singing "Reading Rainbow". And it looks like he put a night stick in the black leather pants. Sorry but I just had to comment on it! LOL

That's your own prejudice. Tupac meant as much to many people as The Beatles did to their parents.

@Jeffrey M: of course it's my own "prejudice" (I prefer to call it my own "opinion", actually). But as popular as he was, I'd still not say he meant as much to people as The Beatles did in their time. But whatever, I don't want to get into a pissing contest about who meant more, or how racist I am that I don't like Tupac, or whatever you want to imply. All I'm saying is that *I* would much rather see a holographic recreation of The Beatles than Tupac. OK?

I'd like to see Dire Straits reassemble. Also, I'd like to see the earlier Genesis lineup with Gabriel, Banks, Rutherford, Hackett and Collins. Of course, someone would have to do the drum duty for Collins these days, but his voice still holds up. Maybe they could mix a little old with newer on a tour. That would be good.

Travelling Wilburys, Amen Corner, and 10 Years After.

Ten Years After..others have put them down(they could have been contenders back in the day!)....it will always be Alvin Lee's band...I bought their album Now(it's only a few years old they also put out another one called Evolution)...to my surprise when I saw on the albums no Alvin Lee and had Joe Gooch, I said to myself what the ffffff?With that said, both NOW and EVOLUTION are quite good as a matter of fact very good, BUT I don't think they should be called Ten Years After....that is a deception because when you say Ten Years After, the 1st person you think of is Alvin lee

The Beatles, Zeppelin, The Who, AC/DC with Bon Scott, Ozzy with Randy Rhodes, CCR, the classic Pink Floyd, the orginal Guns N Roses, my God the list goes on and on! In reality though reunions can often be a disappointment. Expectations of fans are too high as they hope to feel like they did back in the day blasting the old tunes from turntables, cheap car-stereos and boom boxes. Most of the great bands have lost key members due to retirement and/or death so reunions are obviously impossible but they created their best work during a specific time and that type of excitement and immediacy could never be replicated. Rather than dreaming of great bands reuniting I'd rather travel back in time and see them in their youthful prime.
