Saw Iggy a few times, once when he opened for the Stones in the 80's. He was not well received by that crowd.

Saw Neil Young twice, once just him, a stool, a 12 string and an harmonica, once with Crazy Horse.

Excellent call on Queen. Never got to see them live.

Dead Can Dance
Portishead
Emerson, Lake, and Palmer

Saw them on the Black Sea tour in 1981 and it was great, but Partridge was noticeably uncomfortable on stage even then.

Wow, amazing

I suppose their studio-bound status upon quitting touring made their records more 'epic' sonically, but, yeah, would have loved to have seen them in their touring prime, just (loud) drums, guitars and bass.

Jerry Garcia. I've seen all of the recent dead side projects, but I was 14 when he died, and just missed out on seeing a show with my dad on the final tour.

I've also seen David Byrne twice now, but would love to have seen the Heads back in their prime.

Finally, not musicians, but there are a lot of stand-up artists that would have been great to see. I missed out on Carlin, which is really too bad. Bill hicks would have great too.
