An impossible concert is a performance by a musician who is currently deceased, a condition which makes standing and singing for exstended periods extremely difficult. Here is my list, which I am writing without thinking much about it. I am only really 100 percent certain about the top spot.
1. Sam Cooke- 1963. If I could go to only one concert in the history of anything, it would be Sam Cooke at the Harlem Square Club in 1963. Buy this immediately if you dont have it. If you are currently working on a time machine, and you find your motivation lacking, use this as the impetus to suck it up and get back to work.
2. The Velvet Underground and Nico - 1967. This counts even thouhg Lou Reed and John Cale are still around.
3. Rolling Stones (with Brian Wood) - 1968.
4. Beatles - 1965.
5.Otis Redding - 1967
6.Skip James - ummm, before he died, the 30's or something.
7. Son House - same as Skip James
8. James Brown - 1962. Live at the APollo is the 2nd greatest live album of all time. i actually did see James Brown before he died, but it was in 2004, and was sort of embarrassing.
(9.) Bob Marley and the Wailers - 1976, bu tonly if all my friends are with me, if I'm alone, i have no real interest, he drops off the list .
9.Nick Drake- 1970
10.Wu-Tang Clan- 36 Chambers tour
