At the Drive-In circa 1995-1996.

Or Broken Social Scene when they were a post-rock/ambient two-piece.

I wouldn't go 'see' them, I would go to 1963ish and make music that other people should have invented in the future and become the best band ever...duh

There doesn't ssem to be too much imagination shown here. Wouldn't you want go back and see the likes of Little Richard or Bo Diddley invent the rock'n'roll that most modern music is derived from? Or further back to Muddy Waters or Robert Johnson defining the blues that lead to rock'n'roll?

Or even further back to cavemen banging rocks together?

I'm intrigued as to why you feel these ideas are somehow more imaginative than other people's ideas.

Going back in time to see some of the most famous musicians of the 20th century is imaginative?

We have pretty different concepts of "imagination."

To me, imaginative is going back in time to teach a rabbit to ride on the back of a dog.

I'm not trying to be an old fogey / stick in the mud (although possibly guilty of both), merely if given the opportunity for time travel, why use it to see something you can already get on video?

I would rather go back to see something never to be seen again (and my examples were only a few of the many that I could think of)

I'm certainly NOT trying to say my tastes in music are better/more valid than anybody else's, just the imagination of what you could use time travel for
