14. A lot of groups try to emulate their music - The Hot Club of San Francisco has come the closest

Paul Mehling just about has his Selmer guitar dialed in, but he would have to bust or cut off a couple of finger to surpass Django Reinhardt's fingering. Oh, and who need drums when you got 'La Pompe' boys doing their thing.

48. Visiting the Django Reinhardt festival (or should I say Selmer guitar festival) is on my bucket list

Just walk over to YouTube and type a variation of - Samois-sur-Seine, France, Festival Django Reinhardt and you'll find all the Gypsy Jazz you can consume in a week.

It's a toss up who plays better, the Jammers in the parking lots or the big boys on the stages.

Enjoy

In the Summer months, he would open his windows and fill the valley with music.

I remember him noodling 'Cast you fate to the Wind' on his new electric harpsichord, over and over again, only to discover he was composing all that Snoopy music

Can you recognize any similarity?

And not just for music. I felt like the build-up to the Iraq War lacked a focal point, someone who could channel the energy into real protest. I think Lennon might have come closest to filling that role.

17. I've always wondered how he would have responded to the Romantic revolution...

...he was only 36 when he died. How he would have reacted to Beethoven's challenge, and the switch from "classical" to "romantic", is maybe the most fascinating what-if in music history. His very last works show that he was moving a little in that direction. I think we would have had some music beyond human imagination...

...he was only 35. If somehow, some way, he could have gotten clear of booze and dope...I think he was capable of re-inventing the music again, as he had already in the 1940s. Exactly how I can't imagine...but it's the ability of genius to do things ordinary mortals can't imagine. I can see Bird combining Coltrane and Ornette Coleman, and squaring the result. Or maybe he would have done something totally different. We'll never know now...

131. Bird for sure

My first thought was Thelonious Monk, but he got a lot done and maybe said most of what he had to say.

Your comments about Parker are spot on. He was an amazing genius, and interested in Edgar's Varese and Stravinsky as well as jazz and blues. What he and Dizzy accomplished together transformed jazz forever (although there are still many who haven't come to terms with bebop, not to mention all the developments since then -- don't get me started).

Charlie Parker in his short life was one of the most potent forces in music ever. What if he'd lived another 50 years? Just imagine!

There are lots of great musicians. Art Tatum, Jimi Hendrix, or Ella Fitzgerald to name a few. Lots of great composers that we lost tragically young such as Gershwin and Liszt.
Mozart was both. He was a noted musician famous for his improvisation and arguably one of the greatest composers of all time.

58. Gene Clark



From Rolling Stone:

The last Byrds song Clark had a hand in writing, and also the band's last Top 20 hit, this Clark/Crosby/McGuinn co-write was the group's most ambitious single, with the latter's Rickenbacker 12-string guitar tuned to a higher plane of Ravi Shankar-inspired raga drones and Coltrane-esque modal fire. The wry lyrics, though, are primarily Clark's, and they're appropriately soaring, psychedelic and impressionistic. He left the band the same month as the single was released, citing, somewhat ironically, a fear of flying.



For a Spanish Guitar



From Rolling Stone:

It's been widely reported that Bob Dylan had this to say about "For a Spanish Guitar," arguably Gene Clark's greatest effort: "It's) something I or anybody else would have been proud to have written." Against gracefully descending guitar chords, Clark distills Dylan's poetic mysticism down to its emotional essence. In the song, he examines the troubadour's plight: his or her effort to draw in the great wide world of beggars, laughing children and seagulls, and to render that world in song and strings. Clark muses, as best he can, that "the answers they cannot explain/ pulsate from my soul through my brain/ in a Spanish guitar."

I got a postcard in the mail when I was 13 or 14, which would make it '72 or '73.. It depicted an iguana, and there was a handwritten cartoon bubble which said, "I am the lizard king... I can do anything."

Never found out who sent it, so I playfully attribute it to Jim. He has always meant a lot to me, too.

...not just for the music, but I know he'd thoroughly skewer the Orange Shit Gibbon, and the whole current political climate.

Second choice would be BB King. But, BB in his prime, not the last 10 years on stage where he pretty much just phoned it in.

And, my boyfriend says Hendrix. It would be interesting to see how age would have an impact on ways his music would mature and develop.

When he died in 1976 at the age of 25 he was just starting to put it together, though he'd been recording for nearly a decade.

Through posthumous releases I've had a taste of what might have been, but to hear what he'd be doing today?.. that would truly be priceless.
