10 Dead Female Musicians Who Should Be Holograms

These days, re-mortalizing is all the rage, but where the hell are the girls at? 2012 Summer music festivals, we’re lookin’ at YOU.

1. 1. Amy Winehouse (1983-2011)

Seriously, were it not for the drugs, this woman would have conquered the world. Give her a second life!

PS- Did you know she played guitar too? Yeah, she forgot more skills than most of us will ever have.

2. 2. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (1971-2002)

Just point me to the person that wouldn’t want to see TLC, now that we’re all adults. Oh, they don’t exist? Thought so.

3. 3. Etta James (1938-2012)

Perhaps the baddest bitch around back in the day. Beyonce did her absolutely no justice in the Chess Records movie.

4. 4. Wendy O Williams (1949-1998)

Speaking of the baddest bitch around, Wendy O Williams made a habit of, among other things: performing pretty much naked, chainsawing guitars on stage, blowing the stage up, riding atop a freaking bus… need I continue?

5. 5. Judy Garland (1922-1969)

Wizard of Oz remake, broadway reprise, mother-daughter duet with Liza Minnelli, there are about one million ways to accomplish this.

6. 6. Janis Joplin

C’mon Bonnaroo, take a stand and show Cochella whats up.

7. 7. Dusty Springfield (1939-1999)

Can you say live performance with Cypress Hill!? (They sampled this song for their opus, “Hits From the Bong”)

8. 8. Aaliyah (1979-2001)

Everyone would tune in to see this songstress dust herself off and Try Again.

9. 9. Nina Simone (1933-2003)

She could perform on stage with all of the current artists who shes influenced. Well, that would be just about every single blues, folk, pop, R&B, gospel and soul singer ever since the 50’s. Should be well worth the ticket price.

10. 10. Whitney Houston (1963-2012)

All right, the phrase “too soon” is on your mind. Well get it off, we miss this lady and we want her back, NOW.

I mean, SERIOUSLY.

12. [BONUS] Lauryn Hill c.1996 (b. 1975)

Say what you want about Ms. Hill being “alive” and “well”(?)- the Lauryn Hill of the 90’s is gone forever, by her own decree. I would give my innocence (again) to see Fugees back when they really were Fugees.
