Reunions Are All the Rage
With Led Zeppelin taking the stage last night for their first full concert since 1980, and with all the comeback and reunions that have taken place this year by the likes of The Eagles and The Police and Rage Against the Machine and (sort of) the Smashing Pumpkins and a reformed Van Halen, it got The Ampersand to thinking about other reunions we'd like to see, or at the very least economics might someday require.
They turned down an offer of $1-billion dollars to reform in 2000, but why not try again? People would pay insane amounts of money to dance along to Dancing Queen.
There were rumours a few years back about Snoop Dogg taking over for the late Eazy-E, but that never came to pass.
Guns N' Roses
If he ever hopes to finish Chinese Democracy, what Axl Rose needs is a good old dose of Slash.
Stone Temple Pilots
I actually don't mind Velvet Revolver, but if Slash goes back to Axl, then what is Scott Weiland going to do? He's one guy you don't want to give any free time to. He's one of the best front men in all of rock, so why not bring back STP?
