Nathan Posted December 15, 2007 Share Posted December 15, 2007 I won't be doing this in any order, accept for the three headliners. I'm just listing my votes. However, I'm also opening this up for speculation. I want people to make changes. If you are going to do so, however, copy my list and make your changes that way. I'd love to see what different people have in mind. -Dave Grohl -Krist Novoselic -A Vocalist/Guitarist* -Lynyrd Skynyrd -The Black Crowes -(original) Guns N' Roses -Aerosmith -The Black Crowes -Jeff Beck -Eric Clapton -Jimmy Page solo -Robert Plant and the Strange Sensations -John Paul Jones solo -Jason Bonham w/ whatever band he brings with him -BB King -The Allman Brothers Band -Charlie Daniels -Blues Tribute to Robert Johnson -Rush -Neil Peart -Days of the New -The Yardbirds w/ the full line-up including Chris Dreja and all four lead guitarists (Anthony Top Topham, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page) -The Doors (Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger, and John Densmore) w/ Travis Meeks -Robert Randolph (and the Family Band) -Dan Tyminski -David "Honeyboy" Edwards -Ozzy Osbourne -Zakk Wylde (please note... some of these solo artists would be playing with each other, and there are a lot more than could feasibly play in three days as solo acts, but the reason is so acts could get together to take part in the following tributes:) Musical Tributes: -Randy Rhoads (Ozzy Osboure w/ Zakk Wylde... Zakk Wylde plays Dee) -Robert Johnson (Eric Clapton, Honeyboy, Robert Randolph, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck) -Syd Barrett (not necessarily done by Pink Floyd) -Jim Morrison (The Doors w/ Travis Meeks, of course) -Kurt Cobain (Dave Grohl, Krist Noveselic, and *a singer/guitarist I haven't decided on yet) -John Bonham (not necessarily done by Led Zeppelin) Headliners: -Thursday= Emerson, Lake, and Palmer -Friday= Pink Floyd (David Gilmour, Richard Wright, Nick Mason, AND Roger Waters) -Saturday= Led Zeppelin w/ guest appearance by Allison Krauss (Battle of Evermore) (yes, I know... Symphonic, Progressive, then Blues... doesn't make sense... it isn't supposed to... these are my three favorite bands... so they'd headline at my festival ) I would like to go ahead and head off one question. Why would I have a tribute to Kurt Cobain? Well, for me, it's quite simple. I'm sure most of you will scoff at this, but I actually like Nirvana. For starters, Nirvana was the first real music (and when I say real music, I mean in comparison to kid stuff like Raffi and shit like NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, and The Spice Girls) that I really got into. Plus, along with Led Zeppelin, ELP, and Guns N' Roses, Nirvana got me through a seriously tough and black time in my life. I will always love Nirvana regardless of what anyone says. I know I'm in a minority, especially here. But Nirvana was an incredible band, IMO, and I know for a fact Kurt had way more guitar talent then he ever actually used. You just need to hear the pre-Bleach and Bleach era to hear. As soon as he got into Nevermind and beyond, he stopped doing what he really could do. There was more to Kurt guitar-wise then met the eye, if you ever cared to find it. But this is not a Nirvana debate thread, so I'd appreciate it if we left that out. Here is my answer... let's leave it here. Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
