Woman after coma seeks Bob Seger; Stuck in the '80s seeks anyone but ...



Did you miss this bizarre news? Apparently a woman in Flint, Michigan, awoke from a 5-year coma and her first request was to see Bob Seger.

And last night, two years after waking up, her wish came true: She caught a Seger concert up in Auburn Hills.

It's a lovely story, but in all honesty, Seger wouldn't make my top 300 list of bands I'd want to see after waking from coma. (In fact, I might instead wish that radio stations would stop playing his music.) Here's my top three list of bands I'd ask for:

FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD: Their star burned out too fast. Two albums and done? I think not! One more album, and three more reunion tours. There, that's a wish.

THE PLIMSOULS: They set the stage for all the drama and romance of Valley Girl. And there's talk that they might be playing Vegas this summer, so  you never know.

QUEEN: Well, this isn't really going to happen, unless they make a better hologram Freddie Mercury. But I might settle for George Michael handling the frontman duties.

Which bands are on your coma wish list?
