He was talking about 'before RHCP were shit,' implying they are shit now, implying he won't want to see them.
Led Zep are very unlikely to play again, let alone Reading.
The Smiths hate each other, so i would hardly say they are very likely to reform.
He was talking about the ORIGINAL GnR line up, before it became the Axl Rose vanity project.

....

Snap :P

The Smiths very likely to reform? There's as much chance as Abu Hamza being employed to drum for them as there is of Joyce doing it.

Yeah, The Smiths aint reforming, there's just no way it's happening. If they did it would be shit anyway.

But in a perfect situation these bands could play, which is the point of the thread. The Beatles, Nirvana and The Experience can't.

In the perfect situation we could bring people back from the dead...

What's your point?

Exactly this was my point, I presumed these dreams were reasonable and possible rather than people who REALLY don't exist anymore.

Within the realms of possibility... It's quite clear people were choosing possible acts, what's the problem?

Faith No more - bloody guttered Soni was cancelled

Others would be Daft Punk, White Lies, Blur, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Skunk Anansie, Prodigy, Portishead, Fleetwood mac, Joy Formidable or Depeche Mode

Technically possible in that people can dream and hope, but no reasonable expectation of any of them.

Some awesome suggestions and judging by how many people have said Daft Punk shows they would be a popular choice :P

Ultimate headliners, the ones that are no longer with us would be:

Nirvana
The Beatles
Jimi Hendrix

Otherwise, for ones i havent seen live which would be awesome for me:

Daft Punk
The Smiths (Although i cant see these ever reforming)
R.E.M

Im trying to avoid bands like Arctic Monkeys, Arcade Fire, Radiohead etc (as awesome as they all are) they are all around and have played R&L recently so they dont really fall into the 'Dream' category.

Joy Division trumps all 3 of those. Put together.
And Jeff Buckley needs to be in there.


On your last point.... Arcade Fire and Radiohead can be pretty dreamy at times, even if they're around atm.

I think there is a higher chance of bringing back the dead than getting the original line-ups of the likes of Smashing Pumpkins, Guns n Roses and the Smiths back together.

I think The Smiths are more likely than GnR and Pumpkins.

At least Marr and Moz actually talk to each other.

Could these sensations make me feel the pleasures of a normal man?
