[QUOTE=Warhol]Actually, a-ha is still busy recording albums and playing to sold-out arenas internationally. So I doubt they'd stoop to doing a campy retro show in the States. (by the way.... their recent stuff is fantastic....and altogether different from the early stuff).
As for other bands/singers mentioned above.....aside from the dead ones, obviously (i.e. Falco, Holly "Frankie" Johnson of Frankie Goes To Hollywood, etc.)....a lot of them would be great. Gee.....I remember seeing so many of them perform live during the 80's.
Taco and Toni Basil can be categorized in the cheesy group as well.
I know a couple of us were a bit surprised to find out that Holly Johnson is still with us when they did the VH-1 Bands Reunited show. (on which he was the one that let the rest of the band down....they all were ready and willing to put on a show, but he wasn't into it) Just thought I'd toss that out there for ya. It was very strange cause we'd thought he had passed as well.
