As many of you know by now, Tupac performed at this year's edition of Coachella via hologram. When he appeared, the much-intoxicated crowd did not know what to do. It was as if Tupac had died and rose again (to many conspiracy theorists, that was a literal take). Now that we know how Dr. Dre and AV Concepts dreamed up Tupac's vision, here are other memorable artists we would like to see come back from the dead in hologram form.

Bradley Nowell
Known for: Frontman of Sublime
Cause of Death: Heroin overdose
What They Should Perform: 40 oz. To Freedom in it's entirety
Bradley Nowell would turn over in his grave if he saw what Sublime had turned into. Let's face it, Sublime with Rome is just a really good cover band, being that the only original member is Eric Wilson (bass guitar). Any true fan would pay to see a holographic version of Nowell. Besides, the crowd would be high as a kite, and think he had descended from the sky.

Kurt Cobain
Known for:
Frontman of Nirvana
Cause of Death: "Suicide" (Courtney Love)
What They Should Perform: "Rape Me", "The Man Who Sold The World", "Heart Shaped Box" and "In Bloom"
What could Courtney Love do first, if we brought back Kurt Cobain? Would she A. Shoot him? B. Try to fuck him? C. Ask for him money? D. All of the above? In any event, having the Nirvana frontman center stage with Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic performing "Smells Like Teen Spirit" would be one for the ages.

Freddy Mercury
Known for:
Frontman of Queen
Cause of Death: AIDS
What They Should Perform: "Don't Stop Me Now", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Somebody To Love", "Fat Bottom Girls" and "Bicycle"
Sorry Paul Rodgers, your job is done here. What we all want is a Queen reunion hologram world tour with a Freddy Mercury at center stage. The lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody when Freddy says, "Is this the real world? Is this just fantasy?" live would put a spin on everything.


Eazy-E32.jpg


Eazy E
Known for:
NWA
Cause of Death: AIDS
What They Should Perform: "Boyz-N-The-Hood", "Fuck Tha Police", "Straight Outta Compton" and "Express Yourself"
AV Concepts brought back Tupac, now the next step is to bring Eazy back for a special NWA performance at Coachella. Watch out fellas, this Eazy E hologram just might steal your lady for the night.

Michael Jackson
Known for:
Going from black to white
Cause of Death: "Homicide" (more like drug overdose)
What They Should Perform: "Thriller", "Man In The Mirror", "Bad", "Dirty Diana" and "Beat It"
The whole world would love to see the king of pop moon walk across the stage one more time. There would be only one decision to make when recreating Michael Jackson: what color would they make him? That, and should they resurrect him in the Jackson 5, Thriller, Dangerous or post-career era? Either way, it wouldn't be to difficult to recreate the king of pop, because his face was mostly plastic.

Whitney Houston
Known for:
Pop Singer (excessive drug use)
Cause of Death: "Heart attack" (Due to excessive drugs)
What They Should Perform: "I Will Always Love You" and "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Love Me)"
Too soon? We would only resurrect Whitney so we could tell her "we told you so." But when someone finally turns Ms. Houston into a hologram, don't forget the line of coke around her nose.

It's not disrespectful, necessarily, it's just tacky. Like Marilyn Monroe and other stars being "resurrected" for TV commercials. Find your own vibe.

How about a truly ground-breaking musician like Buddy Holly?

This is the PROBLEM with going around and talking about RESURRECTING Six Dead Artists; it doesn't paint a PRETTY MENTAL IMAGE. Specially when you had to go ahead and add pics of each one of them which only serves to ENCOURAGE one's imagination as to how they must look TODAY.

A fact made even scarier when you realize that Whitney looks like she's ALREADY started to decompose in that last shot.
