A Global Army of Veteran Rockers
I'd love to see The Grays reunite...and perform their one and only album.
I'll second 10cc. A friend directed me to the "Clever Clogs" site...Graham Gouldman is still touring and performing 10cc music with an excellent band. Even cooler is that Kevin Godley called him a while back and asked if he'd be interested in doing some writing and recording together. Last I checked on their website, there were four songs they'd done together. How 'bout it, Lol and Eric? Jump in please!
Mike Nesmith did participate in part of a UK tour with the Monkees...there are some clips from Manchester or Birmingham on YouTube, and they are VERY cool. I wish he'd done some dates over here while he was at it. He inherited all that Liquid Paper money & doesn't need Monkees tours for spending cash.
Well, Donette wasn't in Loud Family... but then she wasn't in Game Theory earlier on, either. They always did seem qualitatively different to me even though the personnel was more or less the same.
On a related note to the Kendra thing, I would love to see Clay Allison/Opal reunite. I've been listening to "Happy Nightmare Baby" a lot this week... what a great record. Can't believe it's out of print.
Lots of good calls in this thread many of which I'd second. In particular: The Mats & Huskers-- maybe do a Twin-City, twin-bill? The Long Ryders did reunite, I had tickets in Atlanta, but it was just after our daughter was born, and we ended up not being able to make the drive down from Chattanooga.
The band I'm somewhat surprised not to see mentioned yet is the Smiths. They're all alive and kicking.
On a related note, the Archers of Loaf got together this past weekend and played an unannounced show at the Cat's Cradle in Chapel Hill. I'm hoping this turns into a full blown reunion. There are some video clips of the show on youtube that I'm too lazy to find right now. If you're a fan, check 'em out.
