In this short post, the publication says:
Ticket company Viagogo recently compiled top ten of bands people would love to see reform, with the chart running as follows:
2. The Smiths
3. Take That (with Robbie Williams)
4. Stone Roses
5. Guns N’ Roses (with Slash)
6. Pink Floyd
7. Talking Heads
8. The Faces
10. Jackson Five
Now, I am not sure if Viagogo put this list together scientifically or what, but Wham!? Really?
I feel very fortunate that over the last few years, a lot of the reunions I had been dying to see (and frankly thought would never, never happen) already took place, even if they were just for one show. The two that come to mind first are Floyd and Zeppelin (yeah, not an official reunion with one member deceased, but Jason did very very well). And also The Police. And the original KISS lineup.
And Heaven and Hell (Sabbath with Dio), for God's sake. That one is more than a reunion - that is a re-birth with all the new material forthcoming and recent live DVD.
My rule is to stick with what is actually possible, so I am not going to pine for any more Pink Floyd reunions, with one (two?) of the key members deceased. Nor will I hope for a Beatles reunion or anything that would require a time machine to make a reality.
But having said that, what are some bands you would still love to see re-form before key members truck off to the great gig in the sky?
