It'd be nice to prevent Eric Dolphy's death. I think he could've contributed some (more) fantastic material to the jazz world.

Here's a light one for you: 1992/3 - Sessions for "Turn It Up" by Blur - "This album is starting to really sharpen up! Who knows, you just may really get the cred you deserve! (*and it did!) Excellent stuff...except for this! 'Kazoo kazoo you are mine'?!!! Save it for the B sides! Pure throwaway! "Bang" it out of there!"

Today, Modern Life Is Rubbish is rightfully a great album, and the one that sparked a long life of serious greatness, although one with a notorious skip track although the pain is blunted thanks to the excellence of most of the rest of the album.

EDIT: Thought of another light one - 1987 - Style Council's Jerusalem TV Special and the "Right to Go" song on The Cost of Loving (some say the whole album, possibly). Seen as the beginning of the end for Paul Weller's Post-Jam group that had two good albums that proved that he was thinking right by changing his tune, but it seems possible that Beatles-Worship got the better of him with a few concepts that did not match the music very well (The TV special being his Magical Mystery Tour and The Cost of Loving's "Orange Album" concept for the UK cover was quite reminiscent of a familiar 1968 album cover).

And it would have been a lot easier to prevent than some of the other deaths mentioned in this thread. Just grab one of those German doctors and say, "He's not ODing, he's in a diabetic coma. Don't wait it out, get a goddamn IV in him."

I absolutely don't think it's a good idea to prevent anyone's death. People die for a reason and maybe the beatles would have brought out repetative, and lame albums by the end. Maybe kurt cobain would have started with flowery poppy ****. Maybe Jim Morrison might have in his impulsive behaviour finally killed Pam Courson and would have gone off as the devil himself, and not as the beautiful soul he was. Go back in time to .. i don't know.. **** Grace Slick, or actually go to Woodstock, but don't change anything drastic. (Killing Courtney Love is cool tho)

I think it is worth saving his life just for this possibility. It would be incredible.

And let someone live who tried seven times to kill himself,
before he actually succeeded?
do you actually think that kurt cobain was satisfied with his life?
he wanted to die. all the time. and he succeeded.
and i'm happy for him, that he did.

Nope. Not happening.
Huh? It's like .. someone spoke but then sort of wavered and disappeared! Weird! Must have gone back in time and fucked up the space time continuum and had butterfly effect type ripples through time where he came back to the present and ceased to exist because of something he did in the past.

That'd be my guess anyway.
Or else I'm drunk.

Also i would like to go back to the exact spot Kurt cobain died, to see if he really killed himself or if he was murdered.

it's strange, i don't really wish to prevent Kurt's death i just wanna know what really happened.
Ah. So you'd be one of those "Ignore me just continue what you're doing, this is a documentary from the future" people would you? Don't want to get involved, change time, just get a cheap thrill and satisfy your curiosity? People like you make me sick.

You could at least tell him he's holding the wrong end of the shotgun...

I would stop Theatres des Vampires from being rid of Lord Vampyr.

I mean seriously... from this:



to this:



Draconian did the same thing.

Actually in a nutshell I would gas chamber all the female backup vocalists who eventually took the place of excellent male leads. I've yet to see a better sound come of it.
