Room For Two?

A FB friend asked yesterday, "If you were stuck in an elevator with a rock star, who would it be?"

(To all my grammar nazi's out there, should that be "whom"?)

I ran my list of favorite songs through my head and visualized the artist behind it. Went a little like:

Cat Stevens....no.

Stevie Nicks....no.

Steven Tyler....mmm, no.

Pharrel Williams.....hmm, maybe.

Cindy Lauper...another maybe.

Bob Marley....Oh Yeah, but that elevator might be on the way to heaven, so, uh, NO!

But when I do take that elevator to heaven, it would be nice if Bob Marley and Jim Croce come down to greet me and accompany me on the way up.

Still thinking.......Carlos  Santana......now that is an elevator that I could be stuck on for a long time.

I would definitely ask him if he was thinking of me when he wrote Black Magic Women!!!

If there is room for one more music artist on our little elevator, then I do think I'd like Sarah McClachlan to join us.  Can you imagine the angels that those two people would have in their company?

Which rock star would you choose to be in a stuck elevator with?

p.s. I would have preferred if we were sitting around a fire pit, drinking tequila but, hey, an elevator will have to do.


  1. I actually liked everyone you mentioned. I have Cat Stevens Tea for the Tillerman and I love that record. I have Jim Croce's Time in a Bottle, the vinyl with Black Magic Woman, Bob Marley's greatest hits one of Sarah McClachlan's cd, one of Steven Tyler's Aerosmith records, and Cindy Lauper. I don't have anything Pharrel Williams...should I?

    1. Wait until Pharrel matures a bit. He's going to be phenomenal! I have all the same vinyl as you. I have all of Croce's albums, every one of Santana;s but only a couple are actually LP's.

      So, I'm guessing you're a Boomer!!!

  2. ringo starr, charlie watts, phil collins, max weinberg - all my fave drummers!

    1. Drummers! Dang, I forgot them! Max Weinberg, Sheila E, Don Henley or Mick Fleetwood.

      I was thinking more towards conversation. I'm afraid a drummer would get out some sticks and start drumming on the elevator doors!

  3. I don't care which rock star I'm stuck with, so long as he/she is not claustrophobic or about to have the DTs from withdrawal.

  4. All good choices! As for me, just off the top of my head: Jon Bon Jovi. Mamma mia! And he's just the right age, too; only 3 years older than me.

  5. So, I'm assuming your not contemplating about much conversation.
