    Difficult choice. Elvis or Whitney.

    That's a tough choice.
    But of the ones I really like, I only missed three.
    I would have to pick Ludwig. Sorry Bob and Freddie. Maybe next lifetime.

    Yes, I thought Ludwig too but I guess I took it literally "see one perform again". Too bad they didn't have videos/tapes, etc. in Beethoven's day.

    Janis

    Luckily we have videotape recordings, and there are some really good ones of Janis Joplin's performances. I like this one among many others.

    Olongapo City, just outside Subic Bay Naval station in the Philippines had some of the best cover bands I'd ever seen back in the seventies. The band that covered Janis Joplin was captivating. I was amazed at the time that I was seeing them perform for free at a bar.

    I fail to qualify, I've seen none of them to allow me a return visit.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Same here - 'again' would not apply. But if a one time chance were available, it would have to be Freddie.

    I believe the again is in reference to the performing as opposed to the seeing.

    Then it's a very ambiguous way of expressing the idea when it would be easy to be exact.

    And if that really is Marc Bolan then yes, I did see one of the selection.

    I'm leaning towards Freddie but Johnny Cash is following closely behind as my choice #2. I don't even like country music as a rule but I do like ole Johnny!
