    C'mon, you're going to pass on the opportunity for a Tupac / Kendrick Lamar track?!?!

    Although he is not as well known as others mentioned here, I would bring back D. Boon from the Minutemen. He was 27 when the band's van crashed, and he was ejected from the vehicle. Very tragic death in the punk scene. He was absolutely killed in his prime, and I believe we lost out on some amazing music. He seemed like a very chill dude, and I like his style. Check out the documentary We Jam Econo, if you are interested in learning more about D. and the Minutemen.

    BoBo, the first primate to bang a stick on a drum. The look on his face must have been priceless. But that big black rock sticking out of the ground next to him, nothing special.

    And then he dies from cardiac arrest a week after you brought him back to life.
    Him and Biggie are risky picks, would probably have to buy them a treadmill. :D

    I would love to have Zappa, Lennon, et al, but we got to see their prime. Buddy Holly left us too soon. I don't think he had peaked yet.

    Would have loved to see where his evolution was going to take things.

    Imagine Buddy Holly on acid...

    For purely music reasons, Michael Jackson for sure. Great performer, and his songs translated well to a wide demographic.

    Elvis on voice and Hendrix on equipment. Voice range can only last so long, but Hendrix with modern equipment will be on another level.

    Definitely Freddie Mercury, not only because of the great voice he had, but he was an amazing performer, also Im curious to see how he would react to the different social media sites, and social and culture topics.

    Also for the musicians people havent mentioned I would pick Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, she was on her prime and really had great talent.
