Top 5 Bands You Want to See Reunited

Top 5 Bands You Want to See Reunited

Since this is the first day it seems like the sun has been out in June in Chicago, it got me thinking about the upcoming summer festivals that will be taking place in this great city.

One thing that has been consistent over the years has been bands reuniting to play Lollapalooza, Pitchfork or even the Taste. So, with that in mind, I bring you today’s top 5 list: Top 5 bands you want to see reunited to play live at your favorite summer festival. Now there is only one rule to this, the members need to alive, since John and George are gone. Now you could do something like Queen or Zeppelin since they have played live since the loss of Mercury & Bonham.

Anyway, here are mine, please submit yours in the comment section

1. The Smiths
2. Blur
3. Stone Roses
4. Catherine Wheel
5. Ned's Atomic Dustbin

1. Led Zeppelin with Jason Bonham, although there's no way Plant can hit the high notes and wail like he used to. Could be a downer. But all things being equal, definitely #1.

2. Original lineup KISS, not the current glorified tribute band better known as the Gene Simmons Project.

3. The Cars

4. Cream

5. CCR

Here are mine in no particular order.

The Talking Heads

Soundgarden

Rage Against the Machine

System of a Down (they're on a "Permanent Hiatus)

Temple of the Dog (imagine how cool it would have been if Pearl Jam and Soundgarden had stayed as one band. That would have made for some awesome music and some drama for the ages with all those outsized personalities)


Disclaimer - Tops on my list would be The Band, but half the dudes are dead.
