How do people even come up with this stuff? Rolling Stone did a reader’s poll on 10 Artists Who Should Return As Holograms.
The poll was taken after Snoop Dogg had a hologram of Tupac Shakur during a concert, or something. So, the morbid question is “Hey kids! What dead people do you want to see on stage? Cool! Fun! Woot!”
And the list is: Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, Jim Morrison, Jerry Garcia, Janis Joplin, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Notorious B.I.G..
Hey kids! Anybody not guess who would be on the list? OK, I guessed Keith Moon instead of Notorious. Drummers never did get enough respect.
More than a little sick, and absolutely pointless.
Oh, and apparently there is some ongoing tour out there featuring an Elvis hologram. Talk about the heebie-jeebies!
I liked it better when they just sold those Elvis-on-black-velvet paintings at corner gas stations. When it comes to cheese, I’ll take low tech.
