Swap meet!

Crooked Timber's Friday fun thread!

I can think of a few to add to the list:
  • replace George Michael with Freddie Mercury
  • swap Jack Spyerek (The Trews) with Gary Low (ex-Big Sugar)
  • let old-school, talented Michael Jackson take over from the alien who is currently in possession of his body
  • substitute Tom Waits for Diana Krall (just for a little while)
  • have Holly Cole cover for Tori Amos
  • give Harry Connick Jr. the day off while Big Rude Jake fills in
  • better yet, Big Rude Jake for Johnny Favourite
  • MC 900 Ft. Jesus for Beck
  • anyone, ANYONE for Jessica Simpson. I've heard coat racks with more talent than she has.
  • let's replace Michael Stipe (R.E.M.) (who's voice is like nails on a chalkboard) with Gord Downie (The Tragically Hip), and Colin MacDonald (The Trews) can sub in for him.
  • Shane McGowan (The Pogues) for Leonard Cohen
  • Jimi Hendrix for Eric Clapton - hell, Joe Perry (Aerosmith) for Eric Clapton!
  • Janis Joplin can cover for Courntey Love
  • wouldn't it be interesting to see what Bjork could do with Celine Dion's music?
(To wit: if you could replace any band member/musician with any other, who would you exchange for whom? You are not bound by practical considerations.)
