    Which artists do you miss the most for not having new material/passed:

    For me, perhaps
    John Bonham
    Steve Winwood
    George Harrioson
    Steve Marriotte
    Janis Joplin

    I do wonder where Hendrix would have taken his genius.

    Rory, Merle, Don.

    Far too many to name but that will do for starters.

    Pretty sure Steve Winwood is still among us.

    Not too many stand out for me. My usual suspects (Garcia, Syd, Lennon, Prince, even Petty to an extent) all kind of feel like their best had been expressed by the time they passed.

    In desperation I’ll say Bowie and Janis.

    I wonder about that, too. He died before the advent of Disco. What if he made the same mistake as Rod Stewart and the Stones by putting out a Disco song?

    I thought Johnny Cash was headed in an interesting direction when he passed away... covering a NiN song?

    I'm not a huge fan, but I'd be curious about Bob Marley's direction.

    Shannon Hoon.

    I loved Blind Melon and they really progressed on the second record. Sad we never got to hear more from that group

    (Yes they moved on with a new singer but it's usually just but the same. And Shannon had such a soulful voice)

    Sometimes I wonder if some of the R&R casualties would be held in so high a regard if they had survived...

    For example, if Hendrix had lived maybe he’d have drifted into disco, or prog or even bland arena rock, and then maybe drifted into relative obscurity or routine Vegas showcases... “Ah that Hendrix guy was ok back in the 60s but he’s lost his soul and is just nostalgic kitsch now...”

    Perhaps it’s better just leaving things be...

    That’s not saying that I wouldn’t have loved to see those guys in their heyday of course...

    If you are referring to the Stones’ “Miss You”, I heard that that song was a tongue-in-cheek release to mock disco.

    Marvin Gaye
    Buddy Holly
    Waylon Jennings
    Toy Caldwell
    Curtis Mayfield
    Danny Gatton
    Sam Cooke

    That’s the short list I guess.

    Yea!

    I long ago tired of his first couple albums but parts of Electric Ladyland and the posthumous releases bely a next level of genius emerging... He was clearly expanding out of strict blues vocabulary.

    I read the OP's post to include the living, in which case my two picks are XTC and Gregg Alexander (New Radicals). Brilliant music that makes me want more. Deceased artists I miss a lot include Ross Shapiro (The Glands) and Nick Drake.
