  3. I would say

    One of the girls from ABBA but that seems a bit stalkerish now


    Annie Lennox

  4. [​IMG] Karen Carpenter
    Celine Dion [​IMG]
    Maybe an ABBA girl, or Skin from Skunk Anansie or...
    ...oh, can Julie Andrews be in it, or is that more theatrical/movie? [​IMG] maybe not!
    Hmm, if I was male - Elvis Presley, Jack Johnson, Freddie Mercury

    I was going to say Keith Richards for sheer endurance but I wouldn't remember most of it, so I'll go for Mick Jagger.

    Others would include Eugene Reynolds (The Rezillos) or Suggs (Madness), as they could both bang out a good choon and have seemed to be enjoying themselves while they did it.

    The Jury's still out on becoming Chris Stein though - on the one hand he got to perform with Debbie Harry in more ways than one, but I wouldn't be so keen on the near-fatal wasting disease episode.

    ABBA girls - I reckon we could form a tribute band.
    Siouxsie, I had such a crush on her, Karen Carpenter too - I didn't think of changing sex.
    Can I have a 4th? Noddy Holder, he always seemed to be having such a laugh.
  7. Matt Bellamy (Muse)

    Meat Loaf


    That should give the old lungs a work out... Can't think of any women. Ooh yes - Suzie Quatro!

  9. Ana Matronic - I just think she's fab with a load of attitude

    Kylie - so I could fit into hotpants.

    Adele - for the money and talent!
  10. Johnny Borell - Razorlight - Just sooo cool
    Gary Barlow - For the Money
    Ozzy Ozbourne - JUst for the day! To see what it was like in his world!

  11. Too many to choose from but I'd be...

    Jimi Hendrix
    Robert Fripp
    Jeff Beck

    You ain't allowed to be Jeff Beck, 'cos that's me. I've got the haircut and everything. Just need a new bit of hair dye, but that's easy done. You can be Tal Wilkenfeld.
    Next choice: One of the Temperence Seven, the drummist would be OK
    Next choice: Paul Young

    This is based only on voice and not taking lifestyle etc into account. Women:
    Eva Cassidy
    Karen Carpenter
    Sheryl Crowe
    Jimi Hendrix
    Axle Rose
    John Lennon
    I have voice envy of sooooo many though not being tuneful myself.xx

    I'm afraid it's the troof and even more so now I don't have to work. Always had hair too long to be employed without giving my employers grief other than when I was self employed, but hey, they needed me more than I needed them so I got away with it.
    In fact, it's due for a trim, and what the hell, I ain't 60 yet so I think i'll have it dyed rock-star jet black and see whether it attracts as much crumpet as my dog does in the pub. What do I have to lose?
