Over the last couple of years, George Michael and Prince have hit the comeback trail to no avail. However, Mariah Carey staged an amazing comeback (though I could live without E=MC2). The name Rick Astley was mentioned in another thread and I thought "I'd love to see him make a comeback."

Anyone else come to mind? Or do you think artists who stopped selling music should stay in private life?

I miss Stevie Ray Vaughn but since he's dead theres no chance of a comeback. I think a lot of the old time people from the 60s and 70s should stay where they are and not comeback. The reason I dont frequent the music forum too much is because the majority of posters here are living in a time warp of the 60s.

I miss:

The Time with Jesse Johnson. There is NO Time without Jesse.

I can't think of any one that I've ever liked making a comeback that satisfied me. The stuff that made them great just isn't marketable anymore, and they have to try to make it in some new genre, using their name instead of a natural ability to excel in the new style.

Music IS a time warp, that's one of the countless great things about it.........it can take you back to the period when it was created and released instantly, and you can spend as much time there as you like.

If you aren't able to experience music in that way then I feel sorry for you, because it's one of the mediums most stimulating and emotially powerful aspects.

And by the way, the music of the 60's changed not only music itself, but entire cultures and societies, and paved the way for many of the sounds and genres that have come and gone since. Not to mention it was a million times more creative and talent driven than much of the mainstream CRAP being forced down our throats today.

I agree though I did like his solo stuff.

Carpenters. I was only 13 when Karen died, and didn't become a fan of theirs until many years later. I would give anything to be able to see that group in person today.

I guess Freddie Mercury and Karen Carpenter could make a comeback. Tupac made 5 albums and a movie after he died. Not to mention countless "Greatest Hits" albums by Elvis.
