    if you were trapped in the past, faced with mirror images that were not your own and driven by an unknown force to change history for the better - what tragedy in music history would you change for the better?

    Off the top of my head - i'd have to say I'd go back and save Jeff Buckley. I think he probably was the most unique musical voice of the 90s - in an era that was largely bland and uninspiring. The album Grace is one everyone should listen to, its that good. Hauntingly beautiful voice, powerful arrangements. Its a real shame he left us only one completed album. Imagine seeing Jeff in Vicar Street!

    Anyway - what would you do....?

  • I'd go back and kill Jeff Buckley, just to see RE*AC*TOR's reaction. ;)

    On a serious note, I'd probably try to save Cliff Burton.




  • go back, bitchslap buckley and tell him to never, EVER sing any cohen songs again.

    you and I both know Buckley's version is definitive.

    its the equivalent of jimi hendrix's all along the watchtower.




  • buckley's song is the definitive "why covers suck ass" :p

    I don't understand how anyone with functioning ears could possibly think that.

  • I'd go back and kill Louis Walsh before he founded Boyzone...

    Nyeh, on second thoughts, I'd go back and save Phil Lynott.




  • Id go back in time make everyone realise how great whipping boy were stop sony from droping them tell Ferghal McKee to calm down and bit and the band might have lasted long enough to achive the succes they deserved


    alternatively go back and stop Ian Curtis from toping himslef




  • I'd go back to 1960 with all later-day beatles tunes and pretend i wrote them all, become bigger than Jesus!

    On the contrary, I had the third album (either eponymously titled, or Lowrent2001 depending on your perception of the sleeve notes). It was riddled with orchestral stuff, and nothing like Heartworm which was the only one they deserved credit for.

    Neither do I think that the 90's were the most musically bland era - I was inspired by a lot of 90's music. Personally, I'd go back and actually attend Mansun's final Dublin gig in 2002 instead of wimping out of it because nobody else would go. What was I thinking??? I'd save myself...
