Artists I would die to see them live (once more). This set list is my tribute to those who have left us and when I think of them my mind tells me: “Gosh! How much I would love to see them on a stage again!”

– Esteban

 

 

 

 

David Bowie: Knowing the dead of Bowie was the closest for me to experiment a real deep sad feeling for one of my musical heroes. I discovered the value of his art travelling through Europe. From London to Turkey, David’s music and art in general is highly recognized. Each of his presentations were different since he knew how to adapt to each place he played. No other song would make better sense right now but “I’m afraid of Americans”, because of the moment we are living in the world. Miss you Señor Bowie.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

James Douglas «Jim» Morrison: Who wouldn’t say that a performance by the original Doors nowadays would be a dream? The truth is that Morrison’s life happened between his dreams and nightmares. At my age I got to see a tomb at Pere Lechaise, a wax museum statue, and perhaps the closest I’ve ever been to “opening the Doors of Perception” was 1991’s Oliver Stone’s Movie.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amy Winehouse: Never got a slight chance to see one of my all-time favorite singers play live. Only the good die young.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gustavo Cerati: Gustavo has to be named the real Latin-American musical hero. Considered a deep philosopher as well as a relevant musician worldwide, he was one of the top artists that opened the music concerts era at Mexico (when he brought Soda Stereo from Argentina). Every time his music is played somewhere at America Latina his “musical ghost” spreads magically for the Spanish speaking world (and beyond).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frank Zappa: He is a big genius from whom I’m learning more and more every time I pay attention to his work. By this I mean that I still listen to his music and discover new outlines of his creativity. I found a tremendous video with another Iconic member of the music-movies industry who is no longer in this world, the Blues Brother John Belusci.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Joey, Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone: Mexican urban culture is marked by The Ramones paraphernalia and I am a frequent buyer of it because I love their style. Back in the late 90’s this three members were still alive and they toured at Mexico City. I would be a front-row fan if I could see them, all together, one more time down here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ronnie Jame Dio: One month before he died I saw the band named Heaven and Hell live with Dio as lead vocalist. It was really Black Sabbath with another name because they didn’t have the rights for using it anymore. As small as his size was, Dio had perhaps the most powerful voice of the 80’s metal scene. Dio’s records were played loud and proudly by my early youth generation, since rock concerts in Mexico (especially metal bands) were banned by the government because they were considered dangerous (wtf!!).
