Anyone else see the Tupac hologram on stage with Snoop Dogg? It looks pretty real. It's great.

Now all we need is to make holograms of John Lennon and George Harrison... :]
Man, wouldn't that be amazing...

Heck, I think I can make a list on how many dead musicians need to be made into holograms lol.

I remember Gorillaz tried to tour using holograms about 6 years ago but the technology either didn't exist or they couldn't afford it. OH SHIT I THINK MY DREAMS ARE COMING TRUE GUYS

Cheers! :cheers:
Looks like we'll be getting our flying cars sooner than we think! xD

Anyways, with that kind of technology, they will probably make holograms of bands/musicians who died a long, long time ago...so there will be plenty of reunion tours! Like The Beatles, The Doors, Nirvana, Elvis Presley, Sublime, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix....yeah, I think that's enough for now lol.

I think it's fair to say Kurt Cobain would have absolutely hated the idea of "coming back" as a hologram, so I doubt we'll ever see that one.

I don't think Kurt really has a say in this for obvious reasons, and I wouldn't trust the people who want to milk every penny out of Nirvana's name regardless of Kurt's morals.

Sure, Courtney Love might go for it. Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic almost certainly wouldn't though, and I don't see the appeal of a hologram of Kurt solo.

Hip Hop lends itself to this sort of thing much easier, too. Nirvana were often ragged as hell live, and that was part of the appeal. You can't program in the kind of fuckups Kurt regularly made, and he wasn't half the showman that Tupac is in the first place. I can see a lot of people wanting to jump on the hologram bandwagon, but Nirvana is one that I really don't see happening.

I hope this doesn't become some new phenomenom. It just seems like you would go to a concert to watch gameplay from Guitar Hero. :nono: ...

Same can be said for Morrison. It would be unnatural to witness a computer generated image of Jim hanging on to the mic stand for dear life without the fear that he might pass out. And your right, its way easier for Hip Hop to pull something like a hologram off...

Not heard it yet, but I haven't heard anything that Jack White has ever touched that I haven't thought was at least pretty good. He's just ridiculously consistent, which is all the more remarkable seeing as he releases something new roughly every eight hours.

Never liked Billy Talent in the first place. Green Day should have split up ten years ago so we could remember them as the fantastic punk band they were instead of the dumb sloganeering corporate cookie-cutter they've turned into. :P

particularly, you're right. The best Green day albums are 1,039 smoothed out sloppy hours & Warning.
the newer ones are good too. But they`re different.

Only really in the sense that they take themselves far more seriously these days. Billie Joe's songs are all pretty similiar when you boil them down (not to say they're not good, just that he's never really gone beyond the catchy three chord verse/chorus/verse/chorus/middle eight/chorus pop song). But being helicoptered into stadiums? Costume changes during gigs, and spending as much time challenging different sections of the crowd to out-cheer each other as actually playing songs? Concept albums? Joint singles with U-fucking-2? (They're releasing three albums at once, you say? It's probably because Guns N' Roses only managed two. ;) ) Please just stop now, Green Day, some of us used to really love you and you're making it really hard to carry on. "American Idiot" would've been fine if it was just one song, but making a whole career arc out of it is just lame.

The only thing Green Day have done worth a damn recently is the album they released under the pseudonym Foxboro Hot Tubs, presumably because it's just a dumb, fun rock 'n' roll record instead of a Serious Political Statement. It's completely brilliant from start to finish, and it proves Billie Joe still has it in him. Seriously, Green Day is more of a brand than a band these days, and maybe if it was retired those guys could go back to doing what they're good at again.

I don't think it's just because they're popular. MUSE have grown in popularity over the last several years and they seem to be getting better in some ways. But then again I love MUSE, so it's hard for them to dissapoint me.
