  • Today's Music Question - you have to take two musicians

    The musicians going back must be from this era - having put out music within the last 10 years that is considered modern.

    You pick the era they go back to and you must match them with a band or group from that era.

    One of the people you go back with must fit in almost seamlessly with the music from that time - the other must push music ahead.

    Example

    I take Wynton Marsalis back and toss him in with Duke Ellington's band. for the seamless.



    I take Bruce Springsteen back and make the Beatles a fivesome with him as the lead - for push music ahead.



    Extra credit given to mixing male and female groups.

        This is a math question, isn't it?

        Let's put Tina Turner back in time with say, maybe, Ike Turner.
        I'm always right.

            Columbian - and as soon as I get out I will share my stash -



            Harry Connick Jr as lead singer with Glenn Miller Band - for seamless and pushing at the same time.



            Alisha Keys with the Funk Brothers band for seamless -

            I know somebody else is feeling this.

              springsteen the lead of the beatles? his vocal skills dont even match up to ringo let alone mccartney and lennon. imo the beatles are off limits in this exercise unless you are talking about adding musicians. however when needed the beatles did that anyway.

              the guy who needed a constant presense was santana. he changed lead singers more than most people changed underwear. now he changes l.s. on every song on the albums he puts out. give him rob thomas fulltime from the 60's forward and you probably have something there.

                I would send Rob Zombie back to the Doors.

                Then, just for fun, I'd send Melissa Ethridge back to the Commodores to see if they could turn her from the dark side.

                  Ladies and gentlemen -

                  My name is Chuck Berry and tonight we are going to do things a little different - we have a young man who says he raps - and while its different - it aint bad.

                    I'd send Ian MacKaye back to the Jimi Hendrix Experience (MacKaye could teach Jimi about sobriety and handling the pressures of the music industry).

                    And Dave Grohl would get sent back to T-Rex.
