If you could go back to a certain period in time and relive it, or live in a certain area at that time where when and why would you want to?

For me it would be LA in the 80's.

It was the best time for music IMO, hey Iím a metal head and damn proud of it.Seeing bands like Motley Crue, Poison, Great White, Van Halen, LA Gunns, Faster Pussycat all playing in their prime.
God what a party.

And since I was plying in bands at the time Iím sure I could have somehow put a band together that would have opened for Gunís N Roseís at the Roxy/Rainbow/Gazaries/The Whiskey.

Plus the fact that now I can look back 25 years and say, that my teenís were far better than any other period in my life. (*With the exception of the last 5 with my wife :D )

September 24, 1980...

the day before John Bonham died and less than three months before John Lennon was murdered. The deaths of these two people really ended an era of greatness when both men were in the midsts of comebacks in their careers.

Those two and a half months had to be the worst period in rock music history.

No. Since we are daydreaming, I'd like to go back and somehow change it.

Go to 1952 and buy as many 52 topps Mickey Mantles as I could find goto 1986 and sell the cards and go to Microsoft IPO, sell them before the crash of 87, rebuy at the low low. Ride to 1992 and sell all Microsoft and buy AOL at the low low. Ride to 1999, sell and put it all into Ebay, and hold for a while...

As for one, just push Yoko a few feet to the side.....

Try and keep Keith Moon from OD'ing as well, if you can spare the time.

1985, Motley Crue concert at the L.A. Forum. I would have given that girl a real phone number. She was hot and aggressive. I was too into myself back then

if you changed it, it would alter many peoples lives in perhaps negative ways. Maybe they used that dark period of rock history to make themselves better for the world... if they hadnt died, who knows?

I for one, miss Lennon. He was bright light, and still is. It depends on how you view the spirit of Nonnelnhoj.

That would be 1978. Gawd, those few years were some dark times for rock. I guess the same happened at the end of/beginning of the previous decade as well. Hendrix, Joplin, Morrison...

I think if Jimi had survived the 70's, that there would be more black male guitarists today.

I don't know if it would be negative or not. Lennon had come to terms with who he was post Beatles. Ironically, Bonham was taking medication to stop drinking and trying to get sober.

I wish instead of John Lennon that someone would have instead shot Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee. Neil Peart could have survived and jammed with Zepplin.

Pert's stylings are a polar opposite to Bonham's.

I may be on the outside here, but I wouldn't go anywhere. Back in HS my mom used to tell me to enjoy it because these were the best years of my life. She'll tell you today that my reply of "then kill me now" freaked her out.

Thankfully, every day of my life is better than the last. Everything that has happened has shaped the world to what it is today, so I wouldn't change anything. Truth is everything is impermanent, so why become attached to things?

I did not think that it was April Fools again. I know that I said that I liked Rush over Zeppelin.
