    Fantasy Concert In Your Back Yard

    Here's the deal, music lovers.....

    You get to choose up to five (5) groups, bands, or singers. They can be musicians that have gone to the big concert in the sky (dead). They can be performers from your past (stuck in a time warp because Elton John in 2004 is not the same Elton John you saw in 1975). They can be present-day artists.

    You have won a fantasy lotto and these five (5) that you pick are coming over to your place to play in your backyard.

    Who are the five (5) and when they all get together on stage for that butt-kickin' last song, what song is it?

    The Bear's choices:

    Yes (Present day group)
    Chicago (Up to their third album, about 1973)
    Marshall Tucker Band (1980's version)
    Beatles (Abbey Road time)
    Wilco (Now)

    Kick-butt final tune: 24 Hours At A Time

    Imagine Wilco starting this song, with Tucker, in a straight-forward country manner and, as Wilco does, sliding into great alt-country rocking. Imagine Chicago's early 70s's horns kicking in during the middle of this Marshall Tucker classic. Imagine Yes and the Beatles harmonizing all through the tune. Imagine guitar solos from McCartney and Harrison. Picture the whole damn bunch in my back yard. Too cool.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    1. Faith No More
    2. Living Colour
    3. Led Zeppelin
    4. Fiona Apple
    5. Poe

    The song they all play together... a forty-five minute rendition of Stairway to Heaven, with each doing their own version. (I didn't grow up in the 70s... so I'm not tired of that song.)

    That's quite a range. I'd pay to see that just to see Garth and Snoop trying to mesh their respective music together.

    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    Jimmy Buffett, Jethro Tull (late seventies), John Prine and Shania Twain. Actually Shania wouldn't have to sing. She could just sit next to me in cutoffs and a tube top
