Maybe this isn't the right attitude to have, but I'm sure we all have a few musical aspirations that will likely never come to fruition. We'll say, to give this thread a little direction, this would be related to making an album or forming a group of some kind. Something that has either been elusive for you thus far, or you just know that in your wildest dreams it could never happen. Without further ado... Since my mother was very anti-rock music when I was young, the majority of what I heard in the car was the "golden oldies" radio station, think 50's and 60's doo wop or pop music like early Beatles, Beach Boys, or Elvis. It was all I had to listen to, so I enjoyed it. Even when I got older and was sporting a Smashing Pumpkins or Pearl Jam t-shirt, I would secretly listen to my oldies MP3s. Haven't really found musicians in my "stage of life" that are interested in playing such music, the closest I got was disguising it as Indie music. So onto my unattainable aspiration! I really dug some of the songs, and the concept, of Billy Joel's album An Innocent Man. While it was poppy music, songs on there like Uptown Girl and For The Longest Time are new tracks in that sort of style that I grew up with. Since I can't go back and be a bassist in the 50's, cutting an album with Billy Joel (or anyone passionate for that style) producing it would be a dream come true for me. I can't say I'd know the best people to play on it with me, but I feel like the whole experience would be amazing. Ideally, playing it on the road with a full band would also be great. I'm talking backup singers, maybe some brass instrument players...the works. Of course after doing that, I'd probably want to hit a few more genres (60's-70's music like late Beatles, the Byrds, Lovin Spoonful, etc.) How about you, ladies and gents? Any pie in the sky musical dreams that you are seeing as highly unlikely...or how about anyone who had such an aspiration and then succeeded?
