Guitar World’s 10 Best Comeback Albums of All Time proves that you can’t keep a good band down.
Even the best artists sometimes:
1) Take risks that fans don’t dig
2) Let success get in the way
3) Run out of ideas
4) Lose their way
5) Just get overtaken by something new and exciting
Or, as the list also illustrates, people die and stuff. So bravo AC/DC! Well done, Foo Fighters!
But most of the list is about a wake-up call, followed by a determined (and successful) effort to proclaim, “Not down for the count!”
U2, Metallica, Johnny Cash, Aerosmith, John Lennon, Deep Purple, the Stones, The Dixie Chicks … they’ve all proven they had a lot more to give.
Good for them … and lucky us!
